Crakow is probably the most popular city to visit in Poland. Do you want to spend a lot of bucks or stay at a clean Polish hotel that was $ 25.00 per night in August 2005 when I stayed there?
Hotel Korona is just across the river-south side with a tram stop right in front that in 10-minutes will take you to the Old Town Market Square. They even have an indoor pool! This is the real-Polish-deal, where the Poles stay & don't pay a fortune like all the other foreign tourists. Yes, all the tv channels are in Polish, but you get a clean room & bath and they speak English at the reception & take all major credit cards. You even get breakfast with rolls, jam, & weiners.
As for Cracow,,, they've got all the old beautiful buildings. They've also got lots of bars! If you're a couple or single looking for fun, this is a great town! Why spend a fortune in London or Paris when you'll have a lot better time here and for a lot less money!
I suggest you visit the Cracow-life web site. This city actually ain't that big, so it's easy to get around with the trams. A lot of Poles speak English here as they have the local university and are big on theater. Especially if you are young & on a budget, you'll do much better here than any place in Western Europe.
The Old-Town Square is the center of everything. If you're an older
fart like me (54) you'll enjoy having a nice meal for two with drinks under 50 bucks and that's at the fancy places. If you're young don't worry,,, you'll find pizza & other stuff a lot cheaper!
If you're an all-nighter, check out the Propaganda Bar. They threw us out at 5:00 am! Young or old this is a great city to visit!
