Today Cracow, with its 750 thousand citizens, is the third largest Polish city. It is a scientific, educational, administrative and financial centre of the region, but also a “must” in all itineraries for tourists visiting Poland.
Tourism is inevitably one of the most important sectors in the city’s economy and Cracow has some seven million visitors per year, and growing at a rate faster than ever in history.
The city is a popular destination for party goers, by day the streets are filled with naturally beautiful girls and by night the some three hundred watering holes come alive, polish love to party and they do it in style.
Cracow is an attractive place both in daytime and “after hours”. The varied cultural events and numerous opportunities of high-quality entertainment make a visit to the city the most enjoyable experience.
Wandering the cobblestone streets of the Old Town (Stare Miasto), aged landmarks coexist amid a modern shopping scene. The town may have a rich history, but it has its feet firmly in the modern world—wireless internet access is everywhere, and festivals throughout the year (especially in summer months) showcase cutting-edge music and theater.
