3 min read    0 comments

As the sun returns to this city of artists, musicians, foodies, writers & yogis, Krakow blossoms into life with as many festivals as there are rays of sunshine.

With so many parks, bars, galleries & cafes, we don't exactly need an excuse go out and have fun....  but this plethora of non-stop festivity making certainly doesn't hurt your afternoon plans. Famous for it's depth of culture, Krakow is is full to the brim with celebrations to satisfy just about every interest there is, and just raring to inspire new curiosity. It must be one of the most festival heavy cities in the world.

Welcome to the modern capital of the new wave bourgeoisie... get 'cho poncy small talk honed, your opinions ready to strike, your ironic but not ironic adidas shiny - and enjoy yourself!
