It's All Mapped Out - for Free!

0 min read    15 comments

As a teenager, did you ever cringe as your dad unrolled a map the size of Mongolia and proceeded to talk very loudly as the family was marched across some quaint foreign city? Well, now's the time to embarrass your own children, as Cracow Life has rustled up its very own map marvel.

But wait a moment. There's something different about our green machine. That's right, not only is it FREE, this bi-monthly map gives you all the lowdown on the hottest events of the season, from jazz festivals to clubbing nights to art exhibitions. Listings and coordinates of all the best clubs and cafes, restaurants are also there, not to mention some pithy articles on what's making the news in town. Last but not least, this little monster folds up so neatly that you can slip it into your pocket without even noticing the thing. Discretion is all important, Mr. Bond.

So where do you find the Cracow Life minimap? Look out for our space-age silver boxes in all good Krakow hotels, bars, cafes and cultural centres - copies are flying fast we can tell you.

It's all in there, so much so in fact that we've already lost track of all the different goodies we've packed in. Recap Ronaldo!

* A connoisseur's calendar of the season's best events

* A quick language guide

* Travel tips

* A miniature history of Poland

* A list of the city's finest places to eat, sleep, drink, shop, play

* News and intros to life in the city

So get to your local pub or museum on the double and pick up one of these green critters before you miss out!

If however you prefer to do your tracking down online then head straight for our fully interactive Krakow map to unlock the city's best kept secret locations.

And if you're in Zakopane and Wroclaw, be sure to look for our Guides there as well.

You can find our map in over 300+ locations around the city - when you arrive in Krakow -just look out in cafe's, museums, restaurants & shops for the friendly local-life green booklet :) It's a guide & map all in one! The best thing for trams and transport is to use Jakdojade (use the free website or download the free app). You just type in your location and your destination and it shows you all busses, trams times etc and a map.
