1.) Wawel Royal Castle – gorgeous assortment of predominantly Romanesque, Renaissance and Gothic architecture dating from around the 14th century onwards, is the crown jewel of Cracow’s architectural treasures and required visiting for Poles and foreigners alike.

2.) “Wieliczka” Salt Mine – one of the most valuable monuments of material and spiritual culture in Poland. It is also a world class monument, featuring among twelve objects on the UNESCO’s World Cultural and Natural Heritage List.

3.) Underground Museum – archeological layers of the Main Square contain 1000 years of history. Cracow’s Main Square is an unusual place. Delineated in the middle of the XIII century, it became the principal public area of the city.

4.) Kazimierz- Jewish district, center of Jewish life in Cracow for over 500 years, before it was systematically destroyed during II World War. Well – known for its associations with Schindler and Spielberg, traces of Kazimierz’s Jewish history have not only survived, but literally abound in the form of the district’s numerous synagogues and Jewish cementers.
