Our apartment is in the heart of Krakow, walking distance from practically all the attractions in the city, including: the main square, St. Mary's Basilica, the Sukiennice (cloth market in ancient times, now selling local and regional goods), Kazimierz (the Jewish Quarter), Wawel Castle (the seat of Polish kings for hundreds of years), the Pope John Paul II Center, countless musems (including the new medieval archeological park under the main square!), theaters, cafes, and shops.
Not far (within the Krakow metropolitan area) is the famous Wieliczka Salt Mine, built in the 13th Century, with over 300km of tunnels.
Zakopane, a famous mountain town near hiking, skiing and other outdoor activities, is a 2-3 hour bus ride (110km), with many busses running daily.
There is truly something for everyone!
