Krakow: The old capital of Poland

One comment

Krakow is the second largest and one of the oldest cities in Poland. Situated on the Vistula River, the city dates back to the 7th century. Kraków was the official capital of Poland until 1596. Its old town is a UNESCO world heritage site. The history of this town is from Stone Age.

Krakow’s old city is a real hidden gem! That’s the reason that It is listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The capital of Poland (Warsaw) is nice for the new world but if you are really in the culture and history, Krakow is the place. The city looks as if it was pulled out of an old fairytale – the cobblestone, the wonderful colored architecture, and the little pastry stand in every corner sesame, or salt-decorated pretzels, known as the city’s trademark. The old city is so amazing. The beautiful architecture, long history from the stone age, the market and the center make this place a reality.

The Wawel castle is one of the tourist attraction in Krakow situated on Wawel hill near the Vitsula river makes it amazing. View from the castle is very nice and there are museum inside castle and sometime there are exhibition of painting .

The travel is always a peace if you love it. It was my random solo trip after spending the whole night at bus from Prague(Blog post will follow later), I was in Krakow. It was so peaceful trip, lot of rest. This was one of the memorable trip. I am not a good photographer but I hope you like the post.

  1. What I really recommend to visit in Kraków is hidden and not everyone know it. Rynek Underground between the Cloth Hall (Sukiennice) and Saint Mary’s Church, open the gate to knowledge about Kraków’s past. To discover it, you just have to step down into the Rynek Underground —-> http://www.mhk.pl/branches/rynek-underground
