St. Mary's Church by day...
I've spent the last two days checking this town out... and I'm definately NOT ready to leave.  Most of my time was spent wandering through the Old Town area and Wawel Hill.  Krakow boast's the largest medieval town square (the Rynek Glowny) and one could easily waste an entire day shopping/people-watching there.  As with Warsaw... you can pretty much walk everywhere you need/want to go.  Aside from the train I arrived on, I've yet to use any public transport here.  The Old Town area is full of shops/cafes/bars, many of which are tucked away down narrow/cobbled streets or hidden in obscure alleys/corridors.  My advice... definately invest in the guided tour of the Old Town/Wawel Hill area (knowing the history/significance of what I was seeing really made for a more rewarding experience) AND... if you're looking for a good place to grab a drink/bite... don't miss the C.K. Brewery/Pub just on the western fringe of the Old Town (they have great microbrew and I can describe the Pork knuckle-stuffed pancakes in two words:  DAMN TASTEY!  OK... gotta run... I need to catch my overnight train to Prague in a few.

Isn't Krakow a nice change after spending time in Warsaw?
