I used to leave in Krakow and I love to go there despite of crowd, take some side streets like Jana or Krzyza. Don't follow crowd and if you have a chance reach Market at 4 AM signal will be played for you!

Worth a visit and best done by buggy tour where you can be driven around and be provided with some history from the guide. Lots of lovely cafes and restaurants. Gives a flavour of Polish life.
