The Votes for 2007 Are In!

When our Ten Best Places of 2006 turned out to be such a success, we decided that the city's top quality places to eat, sleep, drink, shop and get culture should be rewarded again, so now we present our Best Places in Cracow awards for 2007.

As always, our goal in giving these awards is to reward excellence, and to encourage further excellence. You might notice that some of places we've picked are the same as the choices for 2006; that's because these places have continued to provide the same excellent experiences that we picked them for the previous year. However, we have quite a few new winners as well, which in just the past year have shown excellence and deserve recognition. We also have a new category, "Best New Places", recognizing those places which have opened in 2007 and are already making a very positive impact on the city.

Throughout the city, you'll find these places with our 'Best Place 2007' sticker - and you know you can expect only the highest quality of service there! And remember, throughout 2008 we'll be constantly monitoring your reviews so we can pick out the best places for 2008; if that's not enough incentive to review, remember that you can win a free trip to Krakow!

Very surprised not to see Hotel Pod Roza on the 2007 top ten list. The food in the main dining room is consistently (and that is the key word in Krakow) excellent. We dine there at least 2-3 times monthly. Flavourful, interesting cuisine beautifully presented. Wait staff are pleasant, knowledgeable and professional.

You should definitely add Vinyl Music Club to the best places to drink list - it's unknown, not right in the center, and that's why it's awesome!
