Explore Cracow - the royal city, the cradle of arts, science and culture.
Tradition is still present here, but the vibrant economy is thriving, too.
There are many ways to discover the city.
The easiest one is to go sightseeing with a guidebook, looking for the monuments described in it, and trying to memorise such names as: the Floriańska Gate, St. Mary's church, the Market Square with the Cloth Hall, Grodzka Street, and finally the Wawel Hill.
Other intriguing places in this area include Kazimierz (the former Jewish district of Cracow), Nowa Huta with its remains of the social realist era, Wieliczka Salt Mine, and the Royal Castle in Niepołomice.
Some tourists want to see more than is usually featured in guidebooks – they will enjoy old Austrian forts, modernist architecture of the 1920's and 1930's, or the churches in Cracow's outskirts which Pope John Paul II defended when he was the Metropolitan of Cracow.
Others may decide to spend their time in the city's cafes and restaurants, long famous for their excellent cuisine.
It is difficult to decide which way of sightseeing is the best one.
Perhaps only when combined will they fully help to discover the true nature of this city, together with its mysteries.
