    Lots of sights with beautiful architecture. There’s a lot going on with it being the centre of the old town.

    We went originally to find a couple of good restaurants that we had booked before travelling. While there we got talked into having a tour around the Jewish District on a buggy for an hour. It was very interesting and the guy showed us places that we would not have found ourselves along with telling us the history of the place and areas that were used for filming Schindler’s List.

    Absolutely stunning! The outside, while grand, does not do the inside justice at all. The sheer size of the inside is deceptive and the beautiful artwork and ornaments are breath taking.

    While the place is a solemn venue it is a marvel to walk around and take it all in.

    Perfect place for the walk. It is the third time we have visited Cracow and we are going to be back with our friends, soon.

    This place was amazing. The place was so big and the history was pretty damn good. The architecture of the buildings here were incredible. It is a must see absolutely beautiful

    It was terrifying! We did the pink room as two girls and we had to leave. We couldn’t even figure out the puzzles because we were so terrified. You do have to crawl through a small space which we hard avoided and left promptly after we fell to the floor screaming. Honestly, it was a good laugh and we’re glad we did it but we were traumatised and had to go sit on a bench in silence for twenty minutes to collect ourselves. If you like that sort of thing, highly recommend. If you don’t, I wouldn’t challenge yourself.

    It was obviously my intention to visit the Wawel Hill area on my trip to Krakow, but I didn't necessarily intend for it to be the first thing on my bucket list. But I just so happened to stumble upon it on my first walk around Krakow, before even being able to check into my hotel. It was fairly early in the morning, the weather was lovely, and there weren't so many people around either, which suited me fine, as I was quite tired after having been awake since 1AM.

    The premises are absolutely stunning, and the views include a small garden, two artillery towers, the castle itself, the Wawel Cathedral, a general museum and a restaurant, to name a few. I didn't take the time to explore all of it, but I went into the cathedral, which has also been formed more like a museum, the Sandomierska tower and went for brunch at the little trattoria there, which will get its own review.

    All the activities are either free or affordable, and I found it a lovely place to just walk around and admire the view as well.

    The cathedral was absolutely mesmerizing. Built in the later half of the 14th century, it stands tall above the already beautiful city of Krakow. You can also go pay a small fee to go inside and visit the Royal Crypts, which were well worth the time and money for me. The whole cathedral is absolutely packed with Polish history. I didn't spend as much time at the Wawel Hills as I probably should, so I will definitely come back for a more thorough visit next time. Hopefully, a little more rested.

    It was raining so we visited here. It was informative and great to see the ruins of the old Krakow too. For what we paid, it was good - if I had paid more I would have not been overly thrilled. Kids would probably like it.

    This place was amazing. You would pay for however long you want and you could go around and play on all the different pinball machines and old arcade games. This place was pretty big and was amazing to see. This place is a must for all those who liked the old games like pac-man. Space invaders.

    Although cold and cloudy, really enjoyed all exhibits outside and inside. Need warm clothing a hat maybe during cooler weather.
    The best exhibits are those in hangers, with plenty of information for each aircraft.
    Although there are many, many military jets to be seen outside.
    Historically, you can see how Poland had to be politically correct before, by the unfortunate scrapping of aircraft built by western countries, but also you can see Polish involvement during WW2 and in the aircraft industry.
    Best get a Tram, car parking is available.
    Unfortunately, no proper coffee bar for a warming cup of tea or coffee, just a machine.
    No help or guidance other than the handouts, saying that though, enthusiasts will really appreciate the vast number of exhibits which are easy to access.
    Nice shop, I bought a plywood cut out model, there are Tea Shirts, hats and other gifts.

    This exhibition is very well done. The soundtracks playing in some areas give an idea of what it must have been like.There isn't much about Oskar Schindler so I can see that some would be disappointed.
    I visited with someone who uses crutches to get around. There are some very daunting staircases, but a member of staff kindly showed us the lift. There is only one lift and it meant backtracking through the exhibits to get back to it, but in a city which is not particularly disability friendly I think they have done their best.

    I've been there yesterday and I'm completely pleased. I wish I visited something like this in Edinburgh. Great that I've been guided by Maja.

    Great to see the chairs. They are not where our map said they were & were tricky to find. They are on the opposite side of the river to the old town and are close to the Jewish ghetto. Near to a big bus terminal - come over the bridge & go straight ahead they are on the right hand side. On the far corner of the square is the pharmacy which helped save lives during WW11.

    Took the English speaking tour today. We got a very warm welcome in the ticket area and it is a nice place for a coffee before the tour starts. We learned a lot. The guide gave a very informative and interesting tour. She was kind and mindful to help the more elderly members of the group. The glass is beautiful.

    Flea market located in the city center. Lot of souvenirs to buy from local vendors. Beautiful art all over. Worth a visit while in town
