What you can not, I repeat, can not miss in Poland.

For these last days I've met a lot of foreigners who were traveling to Poland just to see Krakow, and because Warsaw was, more or less, on their way, they'd stayed there for few days. But, in the end, they final direction was Krakow. Good for them.

Krakow is my favourite place in Poland. This city is so rich in culture and, when I think about it, bohemian atmosphere comes to my mind. When I was little I was traveling to Krakow just to see Wawel and some architecture, and I thought that there is nothing special in this city. But when I turned 14 I went to my first serious trip to Krakow, and I was able to see a lot of important, amazing stuff there.

I was visiting Jewish part of Krakow with all it's restaurants, markets and houses. Bronowice, where Wyspiański's "Wesele" happened. Museums that was dedicated to the victims of WWII. Oświęcim- which was quite an experience. And many other places that are important for Polish culture.

Krakow was the place, where everything that was connected to art, literature and music happend in Poland in XIX century. Everyone who wanted to become an artist went to Krakow. That's why it's so rich with different kinds of monuments and people that made Polish culture then.

Plus, the clubs in Krakow are amazing ;> Now, when we are over 18 we often go partying to Krakow. It's nice and climatic.

When you come partying here in Krakow next time, be sure to let me know! When I take the "tramwaj" home I always have to head toward "Bronowice". :D
