Kraków, a southern #Poland city near the border of the Czech Republic, is known for its well-preserved medieval core and Jewish quarter. Its old town – ringed by Planty Park and remnants of the city’s medieval walls – is centered on the stately, expansive Rynek Glówny (market square). This plaza is the site of the Cloth Hall, a Renaissance-era trading outpost, and St. Mary’s Basilica, a 14th-century Gothic church.
For a start, one very "Kraków" song for you. Play it while watching the gallery for the best experience. I hope this may help you to grasp what Krakow really is about ;)
*"Bracka" is one of the streets in Krakow's Old Town.
Kraków has traditionally been one of the leading centres of Polish academic, cultural, and artistic life and is one of Poland’s most important economic hubs.
