Krakow, the former capital of Poland, is one of the most popular destinations in Eastern Europe. Unlike the rest of Poland, Krakow sustained little physical damage during the II World War, its magnificent old quarter is listed in UNESCO's register of 'World cultural & heritage sites'. Krakow is a good base for excursions to nearby sites - Auschwitz/Birkenau concentration camps (60km), Wieliczka (15km), site of a medieval salt mine, and the mountain resort of Zakopane (100km, 2hr30min by bus).
Krakow is a cosmopolitan city with excellent facilities, a reasonable range of budget accommodation and some wonderful restaurants. 3+ days is necessary to see all of Krakow and nearby sights.
