Krakow — Poland´s cultural Capital
The former Polish capital is full of history and tales from the last thousand years. Start your tour on the Grand Square, the largest of all medieval European cities, is arguably one of the world’s most beautiful plazas. Follow the Royal Road which links the main city gate and Wawel Castle through Krakow’s main streets. Wawel Hill is a mecca for every Pole and a must. From the 11th century on Poland’s monarchs took up their residence here in Wawel Cathedral. The place overflows with art treasures and architectural jewels. Don’t miss the Kazimierz Jewish quarter, one of the main European Jewish centres in the past. Enjoy the traditional Polish food and – very important – the Polish vodka, for many people the best vodka in the world.
