Krakow Krakow, the ancient capital of Poland is the county's leading tourist destination and it is very easy to see why, with its amazing architecture and historic buildings the city oozes romance, set on the banks of the Vistula River and encircled by Planty Park the city is unique in character and history.

Legend has it that the city started life by a mythical ruler Krakos who built it next to a cave occupied by a dragon, it has since changed hands throughout history from Bohemians through to the Monguls and right up to WW2 when the Germans made it their capital of general government.

Today the churches, museums, castles and basilicas all provide a peaceful backdrop to what is arguably one of the most romantic cities in Europe.
