I decided to make a stop in Krakow, the second most important city in Poland and considered as one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

The old city itself is the main tourist attraction since it is a World Heritage Site and is without doubt one of the most beautiful cities with well preserved architecture and buildings.

Wawel castle is one of the symbols of the city and is located on the side of the river Vistula, this castle has its cathedral and museum.

The other great symbol of the city is the Basilica of Santa Maria, considered one of the most beautiful in the world.

The Catholic religion has a very strong presence in this city because Pope John Paul II was the archbishop of Krakow for many years. You can find a museum in the house where he used to live, in addition to his atrium in the Basilica of Santa Maria and monuments in his memory.

Krakow was the home of one of the most kind and good people in our history as Pope John Paul II is, but also has a bitter history related to the Holocaust.

The Schindler factory and museum are in Krakow, a reminder that even in the worst times there is kindness.

Another famous tourist activity in Krakow is to visit the Auschwitz concentration camp that was used during World War II for the concentration, experimentation and extermination of people during the Holocaust. Auschwitz is now also a museum that reminds us how horrible and cruel the war is, as well as a reminder of more than a million people who died on the premises: mainly Jews but also homosexuals, gypsies and people with disabilities.

Another of the tourist recommendations in Krakow is to visit the salt mines, these are located several meters deep and have unique sculptures and salons. Salt chandeliers are very famous for their incredible beauty.

But certainly, getting lost in the city of Krakow and walking through the city center are my favorite activity.

For food I recommend you try the dumplings in several restaurants that have 24 hours service and they can be sweet, of cheese, vegetables or meat.

Krakow has plenty of bars and nightclubs. One of the best pubcrawl in terms of price and quality is here.
