    Stop At: Little Market Square (Maly Rynek), Maly Rynek, Krakow Poland

    Stop At: Zapiekanki od 1980 roku, Sienna 3, 33-332 Kraków, Poland

    In Krakow, you can buy zapiekanka (a long, open-faced sandwich) everywhere, but local residents know there’s only one place where this special dish has survived the turbulent years of transformation.

    Stop At: Main Market Square, Grodzka 2, 31-006 Kraków, Poland

During the summertime Krakow’s Main Market Square hosts plenty of cultural and historical events including the International Jazz Festival, Independent Cinema Festival, Street Theater Festival and many others.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Pass By: St. Mary's Basilica, plac Mariacki 5, 31-042 Kraków, Poland

    You should be there at the top of the hour to listen to the trumpeter who plays from the highest tower of this extraordinary church, a special signal to commemorate a legendary victory over the Mongols in the 13th century. This place is always busy, but around 2pm to 4pm there are fewer people, so if you can - enjoy the Basilica in the afternoon.

    Stop At: Kazmierz The Former Jewish District, Szeroka 24, Krakow 31-053 Poland

    Tram to Kazimierz district .
    Our next stop is the Kazimierz quarter, which in the past was a separate and autonomous city created by the king of the same name, and now is the most recognizable bohemian district of Krakow. Although it can be reached easily on foot, we will take local transport.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Kazmierz The Former Jewish District, Szeroka 24, Krakow 31-053 Poland

    Stop At: The New Square, Plac Nowy, Krakow Poland

    Wherever you look in this area there is a bar or restaurant, and many locals will spend an entire night in this one spot.

Every Sunday morning there is a huge flea market, offering vintage furniture, old records, handmade pottery and more.

    Duration: 5 minutes

    Stop At: Ethnographic Museum, pl. Wolnica 1, Krakow 31-060 Poland

    Stop At: Krakow's Rynek Glowny Central Square, Rynek Glowny, Krakow Poland

    Marchewka z Groszkiem (Carrots with Peas), situated at the corner of Wolnica Square and Mostowa Street, can be a great place for a typical Polish lunch.
