Poland – Historic Centre of Kraków

Krakow’s historic center has survived a succession of wars and occupying powers with its architectural beauty intact.

Krakow’s historic center has survived a succession of wars and occupying powers with its architectural beauty intact. Today the old city’s cobblestone streets, majestic cathedrals, and imposing castle on a hill bear testament to its richness in history, culture, and legends.

Once the capital of Poland, Krakow was home to the country’s first ruler, who occupied the castle on Wawel Hill overlooking Krakow’s market square and the Vistula river. Legend has it that in its early days, the city was plagued by a dragon who devoured livestock and maidens, until the beast was defeated by—according to different versions of the story—either the king’s sons, the king himself, or a clever shoemaker’s apprentice. Visitors can explore the cave allegedly inhabited by the monster, as well as a statue of the dragon erected in 1972, which periodically belches real fire.

Poland – Historic Centre of Kraków

On the banks of the Vistula River, the longest river in Poland is the country’s second-largest city, Krakow. Dating back to the 7th century, Krakow is brimming with history. A history of kings, churches, and openness with Christians living peacefully alongside Jews. Plus a darker, more recent history, makes Krakow an interesting, yet emotional rollercoaster of a city – and you can’t say that about many ancient cities! It’s a beautiful city to walk around packed full of sights to see, but here are just some of the things to do in Krakow on your next trip.

1. EXPLORE THE KRAKOW MAIN SQUARE

The Main Square, or Rynek Główny, in Krakow is the center of the city’s Old Town. And pretty old it is: the square dates back to the 13th century and at almost 5 acres is one of the largest town squares in Europe! It is big that’s for sure.

How to Visit Europe on a Budget Without Backpacks or Hostels; Linda Aksomitis; guide2travel.ca

Poland – Historic Centre of Kraków

Traveling to Europe is often the adventure of a lifetime. While the costs can be high, they don’t have to be. In fact, you can visit Europe on a budget without backpacks or hostels.

Luckily for those of us who’ve always dreamed of knights and castles, the Backpacker Index is a great way to help plan a European itinerary. It publishes two lists annually. The first rates the cheapest 56 cities for backpackers, and the second ranks the top 56 picks for 3-star travelers.

While we’ve never been the backpacker variety of travelers, we’ve learned that compromises on costs don’t have to lessen the experience. Last year we spent nearly three weeks in Europe hitting four capital cities and one additional city. And I can guarantee the Backpacker Ratings were right on target with the costs: Amsterdam(44), Berlin (29), Warsaw (14), Krakow (3), and finally, Stockholm (53).
