A youthful, dynamic city that also passionately preserves its heritage, Krakow offers everything from medieval sights, hearty food and a grid of eminently strollable narrow streets. Explore Krakow is part of a brand-new series and is the perfect pocket companion for your trip: a full-color guide containing 16 easy-to-follow routes, taking in all of the classic sights, such as St Mary's Basilica and Wawel Castle, alongside the fascinating Jewish quarter, bohemian cafés, and, further afield, the poignant Auschwitz. Insight's trademark cultural coverage perfectly sets the routes in context, with introductions to Krakow's cuisine and shopping possibilities, as well the low-down on its nightlife, the liveliest in all of Poland. Hand-picked places to eat and drink are highlighted in each route and in the directory section, which contains a wealth of useful practical information including a language guide, as well as a range of carefully selected hotels to suit all budgets. All routes are plotted on the handy pull-out map, and the stunning photography captures the essence of Krakow.
Insight Guides wherever possible uses local experts who provide insider know-how and share their love and knowledge of the destination.
