The city is absolutely beautiful. There is so much to do and see! If you are ever in Poland I highly recommend a visit to Krakow. St Mary's Basilica is one of the main historical buildings in the main square, along with the amazing Cloth Hall.
Every hour, on the hour, a trumpeter plays out of each window of the tower. The trumpeter stops abruptly mid-way through the trumpet signal to commemorate the famous 13th century trumpeter who was shot in the throat before he could sound the alarm during the Mongol attack on the city.
Our hostel was a 20 minute walk from the main square so, a few days, after a long day of walking and exploring, we hopped onto a tram to save our poor aching feet.
We visited the Salt Mines.... yeah sounds a bit dull, but, do not be fooled. They were amazing!! The cavern above was carved entirely out of solid salt and rock. The sculptures and caverns were amazing! Even the chandeliers we made from salt crystals.
The main square was always buzzing with activity and there were always entertainers around. This guy was brilliant!
On our penultimate day in poland we had a magical horse and carriage ride around the city. It was only £5 each! We felt like royalty :)
The beautiful Cloth Hall from the view of the St Mary's Basilica tower! We climbed up the hundreds of steps to have a bird's eye view of the sqaure and the rest of Krakow and it was totally worth it!
We had a lovely little rest by the river with a view of wawel, the oldest part of the city where the palace, castle, basilica and "dragon's den" is located. I would heartily recommend a trip to Poland. The weather was gorgeous, the architecture was lovely and we had such a brilliant time... Fantastyczny! :D
