Overview

Cracow the ancient seat of Polish kings and intelligentsia, a city of legend and myth that evokes the most fanciful of images, from dragons under the catacombs of Wawel, to Tartar hordes repelled at the gates, to pigeon-knights waiting for their king to return. Kraków’s postcard-perfect Old Town comes complete with Europe’s largest medieval market square and even fairy-tale Wawel Castle overlooking the river. Discover its main landmarks during one day full of beauty.
