Lots to do and see walks, sights the trumpeter on the hour above the church. Went for Xmas market not as good as Prague but good enough with food stands, gluwein, stalls selling wares.

It is a real pleasure to wander around this world heritage site and admire the varied architecture and the many beautiful and ancient churches which it contains. The churches of St Mary's and St Peter and Paul are particular treasures not to to be missed

What a stunning old town, we happily spent hours walking around the old town looking at the variety of buildings and culture. Lots of cobbled streets so flat shoes are a must.

Amazing area. Old chouses, rich churches. If you will visit church - obligatory take voice guide- in many places it costs about 1-2 euro. If you make your jurney in the night - you will feel "Magic of Cracow" ;-)

Beautiful place to visit particularly at Christmas. Lots of bars, restaurants and coffee shops, as well as shops and gift shops. Turn off your iPhone and gps and explore the streets to find hidden local treasures.
