Kraków, the beautiful and fascinating city, is one of Poland’s biggest drawcards. As the royal capital for 500 years, Kraków became an endless source of historical, national treasures. Fortunately, the city emerged largely intact after WWII. Today, Kraków is considered as a treasure trove of Gothic and Renaissance architecture.
There are many interesting, walkable tours in Krakow. An absolutely must-see attraction and city’s centrepiece is magnificent Wawel Castle – the seat of the kings for over 500 years. Exploring Krakow tours, most tourists immediately fall in love with Kraków’s Old Town – the site full of historical treasures and modern attractions, such as popular restaurants, bars and music clubs. Just outside the Old Town visitors can find the former Jewish quarter Kazimierz. Kazimierz was for a long time an independent town. Now it’s a colourful but dramatic evidence of a tragic, bittersweet Polish-Jewish history.
Kraków is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city and an essential part of visiting Poland. Even today, after over 400 years since the capital of Poland moved to Warsaw, Kraków retained much of its symbolic power. With its historical and national treasures and many nightlife opportunities, the city offers a feast for body and soul.
Kraków is not a place to rush – most visitors give themselves at least several days to explore it. After all, tours in Krakow are really captivating.
Concentration camp in Oświęcim is one of the largest European necropolises and one of the most visited tragic memorabilia after World War II. The German death factory is today a tourist attraction, paradoxically an exceptionally interesting attraction, which attracts death and its bad reputation. Although today, crowds of tourists come to
Oświęcim, often not understanding the camp’s message, the history of KL Auschwitz is an amazing story of bestiality, extermination, but also martyrdom and heroism of prisoners.
The remains of the extermination machine have also not disappeared, becoming a significant proof of the bestial occupation of Poland by the German people. After the war, to document the enormity of the Germans’ crime, a museum was established in the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp. It has become a symbol of the martyrdom of a multinational community, perverted thoughtlessly by the perpetrators who usurped the law for the alleged Aryan origin. The total number of victims is unknown, but it is estimated at 4 million people.
Such Auschwitz tour are currently very popular. We can find the most Auschwitz tours in Krakow, because from there it is very close to Oświęcim, but there are also many ads on the internet.
Increasing number of tourists
Each year more and more tourists decide to visit Poland. Located in central Europe as sovereign state. Where lies his beauty? The country have very diverse area. There is a sea, mountains, forests and areas full of lakes. Also as an country with a long history there is a cities full of historical monuments.
Wroclaw as example
The largest western city, lies on the banks of the river Oder. What you can see there? The first is obviously the Old Town with market square. Another historical places is the royal palace and history museum, old Jewish Cementary and Wroclaw University. For someone who likes Christian churches should visit Cathedral of St. john the Baptist, Church of saints Dorothy, church of St. James and Vincent. In Wroclaw also is located one of the biggest Zoological garden in Poland with African aquarium complex. Also in the city is some about 400 dwarfs located around the city. It’s a nice entertainment to search and find them all. List of things to see is really long.
With increasing of number of tourist from Europe, Poland expand his accommodation base. As tourist we could choose between the hotels, hostel or private flats. In my opinion probably the best choice is hostels Poland. They are cheaper than hotels and very often hostels are located in city centers (also in the cities main squares). Be honest, you only need place to sleep for few hours.
Cracow is one of the most interesting and historic places in Poland. The streets full of old tenement houses, lots of cafes and street stalls invite to walk around the city, and it is rich in places where you can relax and unwind. Being in Cracow for only one day is worth seeing the main monuments of the city and they may encourage you to come for longer. Cracow city guided tours from SeeKrakow are the best solution.
Visiting Cracow with melex is an option for those who want to visit the city together with a guide, but rather watch it only from the outside, without venturing into the walls of churches or museum exhibitions. It is a great alternative for older people, for whom a walk with a guide is perhaps too much of a challenge.
On a trip of the Cracow city guided tour we start from the very heart of Cracow, that is from the Main Square, where we tell each other about the history of the location of the medieval city, learn about the Town Hall Tower, St. Mary’s Basilica, the church of St. Wojciech, monument to A. Mickiewicz and the oath of T. Kościuszko. Hence, the former street of Cracow goldsmiths, ie ul. Grodzka, we’re going to St. Mary Magdalene.
Cracow is one of the largest and most numerous cities in Poland. The seat of the Lesser Poland voivodship. Cracow is located on the Vistula at the intersection of the Masovian Upland and the Carpathians in the so-called Krakowska Gate. It has an important administrative, cultural, educational, economic, service and tourist function. Krakow is undoubtedly the cultural capital of Poland – this city is famous for its artistic atmosphere, great theaters, galleries, museums. People are warm and warm here, and the atmosphere of the beautiful Old Town is quickly passed on to visitors.
