Rynek 50, 50-996 Wrocław, Poland
One of the many gems within the gem of Wroclaw is the Town Hall. One thing about being a little off the beaten track is that it’s harder to get English language tours and brochures. So I don’t really know much of the history, but it was a treat...

Kraków, Poland
Wawel Hill occupies a special place in Polish history—the seat of kings, it served as symbol of Polish identity even when the country was erased from the map during partitions. Perched on the limestone hill above the Vistula River, the Wawel...

The interior of this church is stunning, the exact opposite of what you’d be led to believe if you simply glanced at the simple brick exterior. The interior features art nouveau inspired designs of flowers, geometric shapes, and interesting floral...

Świętego Wawrzyńca 12, 31-060 Kraków, Poland
Night owls convene at Stara Zajezdnia, a former tram terminus, to dance to sets from live DJs. A good word to know here: piwo. It means “beer,” and this spot brews its own.

Estery 5, 31-056 Kraków, Poland
Krakow loves its music. Shows at Alchemia are generally more mellow—jazz and folk are staples—but you are in Europe; check the lineup if you’re allergic to techno. The bar doesn’t close until 4 a.m., so feel free to linger...
