Plan your journey around KrakowKrakow is one of the main tourist attractions in Poland. To tour Krakow, the former capital of Poland, it is best to start from the medieval Market Square, which is the center of cultural and social Krakow.

The places worth seeing in Krakow's Market Square are Cloth Hall (Sukiennice), St. Mary's Church and the Town Hall. The Cloth Hall, located in the central part of the market, served as a market hall during the thirteenth century, in which warehouse cloths were traded. St. Mary's Church, with an altar by Veit Stoss, is also located in the Market Square. The Church of St. Wojciech - is 2 meters below the level of the pavement, Town Hall Tower - a deflection from the vertical by half a meter, and a pharmacy in the house No. 13, which has been operating continuously since 1403.
Krakowski Market, located next to the Market Square, was included in the first UNESCO World Heritage list in 1978. A short walk south along Grodzka street is one of the city’s symbols , the Wawel castle, once the home of Polish kings. Krakow is also home to the Jagiellonian University - the second oldest (after the University of Prague) Central European University. Mikołaj Copernicus and Pope John Paul II have studied here. The other attractions of Krakow are the former Jewish district of Kazimierz and Nowa Huta, a settlement built in the socialist realist architecture.

Wieliczka Salt Mine is not far south of Krakow – it is 300 meters deep, with an area of 7.5 Million square meters filled with sculptures of generations of miners. One of the main attractions to visit is the Chapel of St. Kinga, where chandeliers, altars and benches are carved in salt. To imagine the scale of the place is enough to mention that the mine was the scene of the first underground bungee jump!
