They began to travel. It is time to travel, explore and to relax. Probably most of us have long wondered about the choice of that this summer could be seen. One of the most beautiful places in Poland’s Krakow.
Krakow is located on the Vistula River in the southern part of the country. One of the oldest Polish cities. It is characterized by more than 1000 years of history. For 1795 years the Polish capital, and in 1611 the seat of Polish kings.
According to legend, Krakow was founded by Prince Krak. The first mention of the city comes from the writings of Ibrahim ibn Jakub of 966 years.
When you are familiar outline of the history, you can start a trip to Krakow. Let’s start at the Matejko Square, where the King’s Road starts. This tour includes the Barbican, Florian’s Street, Grodzka and Kanonicza to then end up on Wawel Hill. This tour will visit St. Mary’s Church, Cloth Hall, the Church of Sts. Peter and Paul Church, Wawel Castle and many other architectural wonders of Krakow.
Also worth a visit Kazimierz. Once a city founded by King Casimir the Great, part of which was inhabited until the Second World War by the Jewish population. During the war, the district was carved into a Jewish ghetto, where the Nazi authorities made the liquidation of the community living there.
Visiting Kazimierz, we see a synagogue, a Jewish cemetery or graveyard or a house of Helena Rubenstein. This trip will allow us to close knowledge of Jewish culture. Then, take a walk in the Christian part of Kazimierz, there to see the Corpus Christi Church, Wolnica, Church of Sts. Catherine’s Church and monastery of the Pauline Rock, National Pantheon on the Rock. When you get hungry or starts to bug us feel like a cup of coffee, you can take a break in any of the charming eatery. And those in Kazimierz abound. At the end of the tour of Kazimierz you will have the Podgórze where the Schindler Factory.
Since we are already in the Foothills, sin was not to climb the mound of Krak. Dump the hill is linked to the individual in the Krak, but what is the true story of the Mound, nobody knows.
For those who have little, I recommend a walk on the Vistula River, expedition Mound or a trip to Auschwitz and Wieliczka.
After that, Krakow is full of music festivals and cultural events. I ended up Jewish Culture Festival is currently underway Jazz Music Festival and soon there will be one of the biggest music events in Poland – Coke Live Music Festival.
In the meantime, you can go to a museum or art gallery, where everyone can find the exhibition for themselves. Once at the cinema – the Cinema Under the Rams and started Arsie independent film screenings. Passes for only 6 zł. In the evening, you can enjoy a beer or a drink. Lots of clubs, pubs, clubs give us the all-night experience, which we will not forget for a lifetime.
Krakow is the perfect place for a holiday. The charming little streets, monuments of architecture, art galleries and plenty of cafes make no one will be bored.
