Nowadays, Krakow has become the new trendy hot spot for travelers to visit in Central Europe and for good reasons. Unlike Warsaw, even though Krakow is a big city, being there will make you feel like you are in a warm, closely-knitted neighborhood. The charming little district of the Jewish Quarter (Kazimierz), the stunning Wawel Cathedral surrounded by the Vistula river, and the colorful St. Mary's Basilica, there is no shortage of things to see in Krakow.
Within this guide, other than all the usual things you can do, I will take it a little further and recommend you some insider's tips I gathered from a local I know there, and from being based there for 3 months while I was backpacking Europe. Here are the top 10 things to do in Krakow according to the locals.
