Krakow
Retaining its old-world ambiance and charm, Krakow is the prettiest of Poland's main cities, having escaped the worst of WWII bombing. The former Polish capital's atmospheric Old Town and Kazimierz's streets in the Jewish district are crammed with exciting galleries, cafes, pubs and restaurants. Multi-day Krakow Tourist Cards offer museum entry and free bus and tram travel between sights such as Wawel Royal Castle, the striking 14th-century St. Mary's Basilica and the huge 10-acre Main Market Square.
