MY FAVORITE 18 THINGS TO DO KRAKOW – UNDERSTAND
Krakow is a great combination of a historic (but beautifully restored) Old Town and American-style, bubbling entrepreneurship with food and drink options. The city avoided destruction during WWII and has built out a tourist industry and a sophisticated service industry on top of that.
Krakow feels more like a US city with its many top-notch eateries and its Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Krakow is extremely affordable – expect to pay one third or half what you pay in the US for similar quality. The city is filled with busy yet friendly people (more so than in Wroclaw), who know enough English to easily communicate with.
Krakow has a continental, dry climate with very cold winter days and many days with 90+ degrees in summer.
