A Walking Tour of the Old City of Kraków

I love Krakow. It’s one of my favourite European cities. Stunningly beautiful, this walled city is rich in history, with splendid architecture and lovely squares, and a largely pedestrianised centre that’s a delight to stroll. And it’s a city made for walking. This is one city...
