Cities of the World KRAKOW Poland
Wandering among the endless hills, lakes and mountains of Southeast Poland, one can find cities, medieval castles, grandiose palaces and rich museums, each one more interesting than the previous. The city core of Krakow, with its old streets and squares, offer us the feeling of happy days. In the Wawel district, which is built on a hill. Fort walls and bastions protect the royal palace and the cathedral.
The astonishingly great square of the old marketplace is surrounded by medieval houses, and is busy all day and all night. The restaurants tempt travelers with food prepared from wild mushrooms and berries, game and cabbage. The religious buildings keep memories alive of the late Pope, John Paul II.
From Krakow we can take a trip to the Wieliczka salt mine, to the enchanting medieval trading post, Krosno, and to the Ojców National Park, where there are many rivers, castles and caves for us to explore. We can take a look at the symbol of human cruelty, Auschwitz, and take a tour in the Polish Alps. The city of Zakopane awaits those visitors at any season, who would like to take tours, bike and ski.
