Evi & Sander, Belgium "We think Krakow is a beautiful city where you can keep wandering around the streets for hours, days even. With its numerous restaurants, Krakow is the place to be for food lovers. Although, lots of tourist visit this city every day, you don’t feel trapped by all these people. You don’t even notice they are all there. We advise you to visit it in the evening, when it’s dark and all the lights are on! Then it really turns into this romantic scene which you don’t really want to leave."
Stefan, Canada "Krakow is great and there are a lot of places to go sightseeing. There's the Royal Castle - I was impressed by its enormous size and beauty and now appreciate its strong symbolism of the independent Polish state. I also liked when we walked around the Main Market Square and went to have supper in one of the restaurants there. The food was one of a kind and the place itself authentic."
