Krakow Poland

Krakow Poland is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful cities in Poland. Krakow offers much for the eye to behold in architecture, art masterpieces, and historical treasures. Along with all the beauty Krakow nightlife is one that must embraced with much enthusiasm for the life of the city.

Krakow Poland is the capital of Malopolska which is a province that is home in southern or Lesser Poland. Krakow tourism includes the entire valley created by the Vistula River which at one time had many branches that created small islands that were connected by bridges. Today, all of the islands, Kleparz, Skalka, and Wawel are considered part of the city of Krakow and are often included in various Krakow tours.

The entire region of the valley is a hot Krakow tourism Mecca including other towns such as Krynica, Niedzica, Oswiecim, Wieliczka, and Zakopane. Along with these other towns in the region, many Krakow travel opportunities abound including the Tatra Mountains, Pieniny Mountains, and Beskid Mountains.

Krakow travel takes visitors off the beaten path and into a world that is unique and amazing with all the sights to see and things to do. Krakow is the third largest city in Poland and is a major cultural center. Throughout World War II, Krakow remained in tact which can be seen as you enjoy various Krakow tours around the city. One such attraction that is at the top of the list of most popular sights to see in Poland is the Wawel Royal Castle. Wawel Royal Castle has stood on Wawel Hill for at least fifty thousand years and served many purposes throughout the ages. The castle is open for all visitors to enjoy the beautiful interior and take part in the ambience of this castle that has withstood the Paleolithic Age, the Neolithic Age, the Bronze Age, and of course World War II.

Krakow tourism takes visitors to what is known as Planty, a ring shaped park in the center of Old Town. This wonderful attraction is home to many of the monuments and Europe’s largest market which is home to Sukiennice or the Cloth Hall. Sukiennice is a national landmark often visited during one of the many Krakow tours. For those that enjoy a bit of fun after hours Krakow nightlife offers many unique pubs, restaurants, and a variety of entertaining opportunities.

Krakow tours are one of the best ways to embrace the beauty and the history of this Polish city. The most popular tours include the Wieliczka Salt Mine, Auschwitz, and Legendary Krakow.

Wieliczka Salt Mine is one of the most fascinating attractions just outside the city limits of Krakow in Wieliczka. The tour is one that will take you below ground from 64 to 135 meters where you will view the Chapel of the Blessed Kinga.

Auschwitz is a historical sight of the abandoned Nazi German concentration camp, which is today the place, recognized through the Holocaust. During 1942, this camp was the main headquarters that was used for the extermination of European Jews. During the reign of the Nazi’s, Jews, Poles, Gypsies, Russians, and Prisoners of War were killed with around 1,500,000 of all nations. This tour is not recommended for children, as the utter shock can be devastating even for adults.

Legendary Krakow is one tour that the children will thoroughly love. Visitors enjoy the various legends that include the Dragons den that is just below the Wawel Castle, the bell of the drunken men, and other myths and legends centered on Krakow.

These are just a few of the fun and excitement that Krakow Poland has waiting for those that wish to enjoy a great vacation in a fascinating and historical part of the world.
