Lovely city with some amazing views

Wawel castle is a must see absolutely stunning, also if going to austwich leave early it can take 2 hours to get there and ensure the bus or train times as it can get very busy around 5 oclock getting back to krakow so I would leave earlier, krakow shopping centre is amazing plenty to see with restaurants and shops.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Easy to get around
