Krakow tourism

Krakow (also written Cracow) is the former capital of Poland and still one of the country’s most important cities. It's also considered one of the most beautiful cities in Europe thanks to the excellent preservation of its buildings and its rich artistic cultural heritage.

Krakow’s Old Town, listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, is packed with exquisite Gothic, Baroque, and Renaissance-style edifices.

Over two million tourists visit Krakow every year, not only because of the kindness of its inhabitants and the allure of the city but also because it's very close to the Wieliczka Salt Mine and Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum.
