Affordable and with friendly residents

Visitors are often surprised by the city on the Vistula River. Alongside the cultural experience, the friendliness of residents and good affordability make it unique, according to visitors of the 25 European Zoover sites. “We are happy that European Travellers appreciated Cracow – said Andrzej Pawluszek, director of the Polish National Tourist Office in Amsterdam. “Cracow defeated Rome, Berlin, Venice. I think it should be taken into consideration when planning the next holiday trip.”

A visitor to Cracow writes on Zoover: “For those who want to visit a city in Europe and thought they had seen it all, then Cracow is an absolute must” Also beyond the city centre there is lots to see and do: “Go and take a look outside the centre in the Jewish district of Kazimierz, the Soviet neighbourhood of Nowa Huta, or visit the viewpoint on the Kosciuszko mound.
