    Fantastic place, shops everywhere, every type of food you could wish for, street music……we’re not talking about a dude and his boombox ……we’re talking a full brass band, drums, tuba, trombone etc, horse drawn carriages that are illuminated in the evening…..too much to list, go there see it

    Good and quite place to worship. Currently there are some renovation activities, so some places are hidden.

    Old mosaic is renovating also.

    We were not really bothered by all the shops will their jewellery, galls ware and souvenirs. The interior was stunning. The place is large and has an incredible history. Well worth the time to walk through.

    Planty is one of the largest city parks which encircles the Old Town, where the Medieval city walls used to stand until the early 19th century. It is beautiful every season of the year. I reccommend to walk it all around.

    Such a simple idea
    But I was not prepared for how much it moved me. I cried hearing the story and the history

    Easter Saturday, a beautiful choir echoing in the street brought us to watch the procession enter a wonderfully lit church. The gold shone out and the incense made it more mesmerising. A big church with an amazing interior that would require sometime to stand and observe and absorb it all. Superb architecture.

    Classical favorites played in a stunningly beautiful, easily accessible venue—St. Peter and Paul Church! Different concerts every night of the week at 8:00 PM. Reasonably-priced. Tickets available at the door. Highly recommend as a crowd-pleasing, relaxing cultural activity, that can fill in any free evening in Krakow!

    Absolutely stunning street with so much to see in terms of architecture, monuments, just absorb the local feel and surroundings, especially on a sunny day.

    Very nice architecture, good shawarma and nice people, but if you dont know already you cannot drink beer in public. As austrians we would have never expected this to be illegal, but you will be fined around 21€.

    I did not expect to enjoy this place as much as I did. Beautiful view of the whole of Krakow. The sad part is that you are in the middle of horrors that took place during Ww2 (Plasnow concentration camp, querry, Jewish ghetto...). You should visit this place at the end of the day to enjoy nice lighting. The climb is not too difficult.

    The site is located in a very green area, roughly 15 minutes from the Krakus Mount on foot. The barracks are gone and there are billboards around the site to explain the history of the camp. In my opinion, a guides visit is probably the best way to visit this place. The solo visit is a bit tedious. There is a very poignant memorial monument to be seen.

    A very typical church giving a good sense of cultural, religious and historical background, would definitely recommend to visit.

    The site of the building originally housed the neo-Gothic monastery complex of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy (founded in 1862), which was designed by Charles Zaremba and was built between 1889–1891. In 1966, the remains of Sister Faustina were moved to the church. In 1968 Cardinal Karol Wojtyła (later Pope John Paul II) designated the church as a shrine, thanks to the remains of Sister Faustina.
