As the cultural capital of Poland, Krakow is one of the best places to visit in Poland and the city 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 ultra cool cafes and nightclubs.
Take to the streets of Krakow for a free Macabre Tour of the dark side of the city. Trace the footsteps of murderers, hear about the hidden criminal tendencies of Krakow's monasteries, and reveal the name of the city's most notorious mass murderer.
Combine the past with the contemporary with a visit to the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCAK) - a 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.
