Regardless of if you call the city Kraków or it’s traditional historic name of Cracow, the locals will know what you are talking about. Beyond the luxury of Western Europe, in Eastern Europe, Kraków is full of culture that you can find in the streets filled with restaurants and bars. Sitting in one of the many coffee shops or bars available in the city is a great way to meet locals and learn about the history of the city. The vibrant cafe culture of Kraków is perfect for spending afternoons studying and reading a book. I recommend Cytat Cafè for this. Krakow Restaurants are full of traditional Polish dishes alongside international influences.
Kraków is a city that is at the heart of Eastern Europe and has become very popular with travelers. Visiting Kazimierz in Kraków is one of the most popular things for people to do when spending time in the city. The Wawel Cathedral is one of the most beautiful cathedrals in all of Europe.
Explore the castle grounds of the Wawel Cathedral and the beautiful surrounding environment. Sitting in the heart of the Royal Palace, the Wawel Cathedral is a staple of Polish history and a symbol of Cracovian gothic architecture.
