Kraków’s medieval skyline is best viewed from the top—at the roof-level Sky Bar of Hotel Stary, which also happens to be a solid choice for accommodations. For your first beer of the night, order any type of Zywiec, Poland’s national brew, made just outside the city. Don’t be surprised when it’s served with a straw.
As the number of bars in Krakow has gradually increased, the spots from which to enjoy a sunset drink have also expanded. One of the most glamorous spots is the Sky Bar on the roof of the Hotel Stary, overlooking the main square. Order a cocktail or a decadent homemade dessert and watch as the bustle of the city plays out below to the occasional tune of the unfinished bugler.
