What We Love About Krakow

The beautiful city of Krakow, the former capital of Poland, is a dreamland for those with a fascination for architecture and is a great destination for history buffs. Simply strolling the quaint streets of its Old Town will immerse you in its past and get you acquainted with buildings made under the Baroque, Gothic, and Renaissance periods of the country. You can also visit the harrowing remnants of the ghetto, Schindler’s Enamel Factory, and the ruins of former concentration camps to learn about city life back in World War II and see how far the city has come and how it evolved into the lively hub for art and education that it is today.
