One of Poland’s oldest cities, Krakow was thought to have been built upon the cave of a dragon that had been defeated by King Krak, or so the myths and legends say. Dive into the rich, yet dark history as well as seeing the current transformation into the modern day Krakow. With world class monuments, towering Gothic spires, cobbled streets, the Wawel dragon (the main character of many stories that are recounted in Polish folklore) and the locals favorite snack, pretzels, there’s enough to keep you busy for days. There’s plenty to see and do, from the Wawel Royal Castle, to the innovative museums and discovering the nooks and crannies amidst the UNESCO Old Town.
Located on the banks of the Wisla River and at the foot of the Carpathian Mountains the city has a stunning setting which should not be overlooked.
