    There is a quite cheap and a bit "hidden" coffee bar with beautiful view on the main market. Just walk into museum in Sukiennice (building in the center of market) and go upstairs on the second floor.

    The first UNESCO World Heritage List from 1978 year had only 12 the most valuable objects from around the world. One of them was Krakow - the Old City, the Royal Wawel Castle and jewish Kazimierz.

    A must-to is visit to museums, both the underground one to inform about history (~1,5h) and the one at first floor of Sukiennice (image) where you can educate about polish art in 4 time periods (~1h).

    Night clubs are open until 5am or for as long as there are customers. They're mostly up small alleyways off the main streets. Can look dodgy but are fine inside. Check out a couple & see music suits u

    All roads in Krakow lead to the Rynek Glowny, the largest medieval square in Europe. Order a drink in any of the cafes and admire the stunning buildings in every direction. Read more

    Across the square are lot of handcrafted goods on display. But my favorite thing to buy for yourself or to gift is 🌹 from blacksmith. Best 🎁 ever ⬇️

    Many restaurants. Good for lunch, dinner, beer, glass of wine...:-) Do not give the impression of being a tourist, you will be surrounded by "guides"... Friendly atmosphere, relaxed and calm.

    The entire medieval old town of Krakow is a UNESCO's World Heritage List. The Rynek Główny is one of it's most important sites being the largest medieval town square of any European city.

    Beautiful place. I like the fact that there are as many locals there as tourists - doesn't feel like an empty attraction for foreigners.

    It might seem too touristic. If you want to relax in the authentic atmosphere, have a lunch in Kazimierz area.
