Krakow – a modern city steeped in history

Krakow – a modern city steeped in history

Krakow is the jewel in the Polish crown. Unscathed during WWII, the city perfectly combines the old and the new.
Walking its cobblestone streets, sense the city’s ancient glory. Reach the central square laid out at the intersection of important medieval trade routes. Select among lots of cultural events, home-made chocolate stores, artistic pubs and modern restaurants.  Touch the ancient walls, feel the distinct spirit and see on your own why this vibrant place attracts millions of international visitors.

Check the amazing video by Quen Tin, influencer who visited Krakow last summer and loved it. The video shows all highlights of our former capital: a lovely street gallery in Pijarska street, precious Wawel Castle (residence of Polish kings) with the legendary Dragon statue, and a picturesque aerial view of the central square.
