The next Prague
Kraków is easily Poland’s best destination: a beautiful, old-fashioned city with enjoyable sights, tourists, and active students, and some heavy history.
Even though the country’s capital moved from here to Warsaw, Kraków remains Poland’s cultural and intellectual center. Bustling university life, thought-provoking museums, breathtaking churches, great restaurants, sprawling parks, and vivid Jewish heritage sights round out the city’s appeal. Of all of the Eastern European cities laying claim to the boast „the next Prague,” Kraków is for real.
