Culture in Krakow

It's impossible to mention the word "Krakow" and not say "culture" the same sentence. In this city you are absolutely immersed in all of life's finer things. Cherubs and gargoyles look down from almost every ancient palace and townhouse - guarding the endless treasure troves of everything cultural.

From famous paintings, like Da Vinci's "Lady with an Ermine" to Egyptian artefacts, to catacombs which easily break the thousand-year marker, you'll find more culture and history here than in most cities on this planet. When you've satisfied your museum-hunger, move right along to Krakow's many galleries. Showcasing the best of the old as well as the brightest modern stars, you'll get more art than you can handle. And let's not forget about the city's own, unique culture. There are not many places in the world where "nie kulturalny" (uncultured) survives as a powerful cut-down. We've prepared an easy to use directory of all of the city's finer things. Perfect for balancing out that "Drink" section!

The Princes Czartoryski Museum

Had a fantastic time in this museum! Really interesting, touching and even funny! Been waiting for it to re open for a long time and definitely worth the wait. Very excited for when the wing with ancient artifacts is accessible!!

Disappointing ....we came to Kraków to see the factory of Oskar Shindlers but instead it was all about the Jews in Poland .it is a bit false advertising...I'd already done the ghetto tour
