Poland’s renowned second city boasts a fascinating and turbulent past with historic treasures around every other corner. The Old Town is certainly one of the most beautiful in the world, with its cobbled streets and majestic buildings which house cosy cafes, restaurants and shops. In the main market square you can take your place on one the terraces and watch the world go by whilst enjoying a bite to eat. History buffs will be sure to want to explore Kazimierz, the city's Jewish quarter which was destroyed during World War II. Throughout the neighbourhood you will discover traces of its heartbreaking history and it is also possible to visit Oskar Schindler’s factory which now features an exhibition dedicated to Krakow during the Nazi occupation. What also makes Kazimierz such a special neighbourhood is that is has now become a bohemian hotspot, bursting with bars and cafes which are the perfect place to while away an evening.
