About Krakow

With a noble history dating back to the fourth century, Krakow has endured a long, and often difficult, history. But throughout the story of settlement and destruction, this enchanted city has evolved along the mighty Vistula River with the stunning magnificence of the Carpathian Mountains as its backdrop. If the legend is to be believed, it was founded by the defeat of a dragon - many visitors today still feel something mythical in the air of its medieval streets and market squares. From medieval tradition and Gothic splendor, the magnificent architecture of Krakow alone makes for a rewarding visit.

Quick Guide to Krakow

  • Must See: Visit the castle, a symbol of national pride throughout the centuries, and Wawel Cathedral, home to many coronations and funerals of Poland's monarchs. The Market Square is reckoned to be one of the finest in Europe, while Rynek Underground is a fascinating underground walkway beneath the medieval market square.
  • Must Do: With a diet rich in meat, Polish cuisine shows the influence of its many cultures and there are many restaurants catering to a wide range of eating experiences.
