Cracow – the city of old dream
When we’re planning to travel to some new country we’re usually thinking about visiting a capital. Because there we are expecting to see the heart of the country. With Poland, it’s another story. The heart of this country- definitely Cracow, the oldest city, with long and rich history, with unique old architecture, the tastiest food, and never-ending nightlife. Cracow never sleeps, unlike some other cities in Europe.
For me Cracow is a very special place, it’s one of the places where I’m feeling myself like at home: safe, free and always loved. I have spent 3 years in the city during my student time. And always felt that I’m in the right place at the right time. So, because of it, I had enough time to explore the amazing city and right now can tell what is really the best and necessary to see there.
Generally, it’s hard to pick out only 10 places in Cracow, because there’s much more, especially depends on that you’ve become more interested in getting if it’s history or nightlife, art or nature. Here I’ll highlight 10 the best spots in any category for myself and I’m sure that anyone would enjoy it. I want to show already experienced travelers that Cracow is not only Wawel castle, Main market, and Kazimierz, it’s much more, you can’t even imagine how much unique thinks are hidden in the town.
In this article, I will tell you my secrets, will take you through the New Cracow and will create a trip which you will never forget. + read till the end and you will find a small bonus about polish language 😉
1. Salwator: Ancient District
The oldest neighbourhood in Cracow and one of the most expensive about living there, because it’s not usual place, you’re so close to the city centre with a lot of tourists, restaurants etc, but at the same time you’re feeling like you’re in some small village, far from megapolis’s life. It’s a real pleasure to walk through those streets. And the main road on Salwator will lead you to our second topic.
