Sights in Krakow

Krakow’s main square is the largest in medieval Europe at 10 acres. It includes St Mary’s Basilica, shops, restaurants, and cafes. St. Mary’s, gothic and beautiful, has an amazing altarpiece which is a national treasure of Poland. Wawel Castle is also impressive, a huge compound on the Vistula River. The history of World War 2 in the area is powerfully felt at Ghetto Heroes Square, an empty square with memorials represented by chairs, for the Jewish people who died in concentration camps.

For another sad but important reminder of the war, we highly recommend visiting Schindler’s Factory Museum. The original Schindler’s Factory houses artifacts and stories of the history of Krakow. The stories are of both the Jewish people and their neighbors, and their experiences in Krakow during World War 2. It shows what life was like for people enduring hardships, but also their adventures and inventive thinking and planning to survive while helping each other. It is not a long tour, but it is very good. You should definitely book a time slot in advance.

Food and Pubs

Krakow is a beautiful European city, full of wonderful sights, tours, and restaurants, with a fascinating history. Everything was so wonderful, and we couldn’t get over how great the prices were. We had a lovely time in our 3 days in Krakow.
