Krakow is quite a small city, but it is filled with history. I could have spent days in Krakow and always found something to do - I wouldn't have even had to go that far out of the center to do so.

Beautiful city with the most amazing main square. Love the architecture and the culture. Krakow is a city worth exploring at some length. Probably 2-3 days at least.

Krakow was the medieval capital of Poland and is the nation's cultural heart. It's also one of the more unspoiled corners of Europe. It's worth a few days of your time to check out of the cellar bar scene and take a day trip to Auschwitz.

A one day trip to Krakow is not a bad idea. Three hours on a train each way may seem to long, but you may bring a good book with you or some nice company. Krakow's Old Historic District and Old Kazimierz Jewish District are a must and you may easily cover them in one day. There is also the Wawel Royal Castle and many other UNESCO World Heritage Sites. You may even want to spend one night in Krakow and explore it further.

This is Poland's premier attraction. Although it's been discovered, I don't think tourism has ruined the city. It is still quite beautiful and filled with history.

This city is better than we expected. Krakow is as picturesque as Prague but with fewer tourists. Transportation is excellent and the city is quite walkable. The large main market square is colorful and lively.

April-May is a great time of year to go to Krakow! The Rynek Glowny is the largest medieval town square in Europe and the historical significance of the city and country just oozes out of every corner. The architecture of the buildings as well as the Sukiennice, St. Mary's & Wawel is amazing. When I went I took the overnight train from Hungary and it was a great experience.

A great destination for a citytrip. A lot of cultural highlights to visit. Food/drink is of high quality and divers. Public transport in town is not the newest and brightest equipment but generally OK and very cheap. Although to visit the old town you can walk (it is not very big). A place i would certainly visit again

On this trip to Poland I have fallen deeply in love with Krakow. The city while not only ripe with history and beauty it's full of vibrance youth, not to mention the good and drink. I will be returning as soon as possible.
The main attractions can be easily accessed in foot and can be leisurely taken in, in a few days. Though don't be deceived by the potential completeness of a quick and easy city break. Krakow will leave you wanting more of her.
