Guides through Krakow
Anyone who visits Krakow, Poland will tell you to travel to the city as soon as you can. It’s home to Main Square, one of the largest Medieval squares in Europe and occupied by St. Mary’s Basilica, where the bugle call is still heard every hour. And Cloth Hall, a building from the renaissance. Along the outskirts of Krakow Old Town is the surrounding park, and across the street lies 14th century, gothic Royal Wawel Castle and Cathedral. With a great history and a fire-breathing dragon on site, it’s the perfect medieval escape.
The Jewish Quarter is a great place to start with the old and new cemeteries, synagogue, and Schindler’s Factory. Restaurants, cafes, and amazing nightlife can be found all over the city as well. The main sights are within walking distance from each other and if you want to learn more about a particular piece of history taking a free walking tour with local guides from Freetour.com will make your trip an unforgettable experience.
Two important day trips should be included with a visit to Krakow including the exquisite Wieliczka salt mines and Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum, respectively. The latter can be visited with on-site guides as you learn about the chilling history of the camps.
