Krakow Old Town
The shiny Royal Pearl, the city of art, the cultural capital of Poland, one of the first sites acknowledged by UNESCO.
The shiny Royal Pearl, the city of art, the cultural capital of Poland, one of the first sites acknowledged by UNESCO … The list of Cracow’s noble attributes could never end. But is that all? Certainly not. With its largest in Europe town square and over 130 mighty churches, Cracow is with no doubts a cradle of Polish turbulent history and splendid culture. But it’s also a young university city bustling day and night with innumerable clubs, pubs, atmospheric restaurants and cafes located in authentic palaces or romantic cellars.
Might you think that other European cities can also boast it? Well, we still have an ace up our sleeve. Try unforgettable adventures and trips that you won’t enjoy elsewhere. How about the underground experience in Wieliczka Salt Mine whose history dates back to the prehistoric times? Captivating salt-interiors located 135 metres under the ground may become a fantastic background of your gala dinner or conference, whereas an accompanying concert of a real miners’ orchestra, choir or an energetic folk show will make your guests never forget that night.
The other option of something really extraordinary in Cracow is to take your guests on a trip into the past. Let’s discover the phenomenon on the European scale: city in the city that bears testimony to the rich Jewish heritage in this region. Kazimierz is a legendary Jewish district on the bank of the Vistula River that was once a separate town with its own town hall and shrines. Wander through the narrow winding streets, admire the historic synagogues, magnificent tenements and convince yourself that the unique Jewish culture is still alive there! In the evening, seat back and relax in one of the numerous Jewish restaurants: taste local specialties and enjoy a real Klezmer concert.
