10 Amazing Photos From The Streets Of Krakow

It’s one of the toughest challenges for a city to enchant me when I’m in my winter coat – which means cold… that thing I can’t stand. Cold makes me grumpy and I find everything annoying when I’m cold. But I’ve fallen in love with Krakow in spite of the chilly and snowy weather during our March visit. Our favorite chocolaterie on the Main Square might have something to do with that as there’s only one thing that makes cold weather bearable: hot chocolate. But maybe Krakow’s charm is also part of it. Anyway, you decide. Here’s our 10 favorite pictures of Krakow’s Old Town!

How many churches do you see in the following picture? Well, the correct answer is: one! Or not? Wawel Cathedral is an amazing 2 in 1: Gothic church inside a Baroque church.
