“Very Busy but Atmospheric”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

There were LOTS of places to eat and drink all through Krakow centre - you will never go hungry! The area is lovely and some great buildings but quite 'touristy'. Out of the main Old Town the buildings can appear more run down but still a great atmosphere.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 18 June 2014 via mobile

More interesting and fascinating than Prague, Krakow has got 5 stars from us. Main market place is very beautiful, huge and entertaining. Just sit in a cafe and enjoy. Don't miss this lovely city.
