Reviews

Fabulous place in Poland! As we drove in on a coach I wondered what we were coming to. Very black and plain buildings but communism had only left their borders 20 years ago. In the central area it was delightful and completely different. The city square is the largest in Europe surrounded by restaurants. Shops, bars and clubs are great. Our hotel was 5 minutes walk from the main square which was delightful. The garden area just outside the old town walls is glorious. I would love to return here.

Enrice
My friend and I are just back from Krakow. We had an absolutely brilliant time there and I highly recommend it to anyone. We found the architecture fascinating, the people friendly and no sign of the dreaded stag parties. The city is walkable and the Christmas market is amazing and huge. There are so many things to do in Krakow 3 days just didn't cover half of it, we will definitely come back for a longer stay.
