My favourite restaurant in Krakow is definitely Wierzynek, on Market Square. You do need to book as the place very popular. It is a very grand restaurant with a history dating back to 1364 and it was certainly the most expensive place we dined in whilst in Krakow but if it is good enough for George Bush and Fidel Castro, although they probably did not eat together...

As the cultural capital of Poland, Krakow never suffers a shortage of exhibitions, arts, concerts and theatrical performances. The Market Square is the largest medieval Square in Europe and the Cloth Hall is an excellent starting point for souvenir shopping. To escape the crowds, head for Kazimierz district for ulta cool cafes and nightclubs.

Bring out the Miss Marple deep within you and take to the streets of Krakow for a Criminal Tour of the dark side of the city. Trace the footsteps of murderers, hear about the hidden criminal tendencies of Krakow's monasteries, find out what happened to Da Vinci's paintings in World War II and reveal the name of the city's most notorious mass murderer.

Regent Recommends

Combine the past with the contemporary with a visit to the Museum of Contemporary Art - a recently opened museum housed inside the factory where Oskar Schindler protected his Jewish workers from deportation to the Nazi camps during World War II. Italian architects Claudio Nardi and Leonardo Maria Proli have constructed a new building for the site, as well as converting six existing structures, to create a vast exhibition space.
