Charming Sunday in Cracow

4th July 2015

It was 31st May 2015 when I spent a nice weekend in Cracow. Cracow is a city which is located 70 km from my place. It is one of the oldest city in Europe. It is famous for their landmarks.


Kraków also Cracow, or Krakow (US English /ˈkræk/UK English /ˈkrækɒv/) is the second largest and one of the oldest cities in Poland. Situated on the Vistula River (PolishWisła) in the Lesser Poland region, the city dates back to the 7th century. Kraków has traditionally been one of the leading centres of Polish academic, cultural, and artistic life and is one of Poland's most important economic hubs. It was the capital of the Crown of the Kingdom of Poland from 1038 to 1569; the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth from 1569 to 1596;] the Free City of Kraków from 1815 to 1846; the Grand Duchy of Cracow from 1846 to 1918; and Kraków Voivodeship from the 14th century to 1998. It has been the capital of Lesser Poland Voivodeship since 1999.


Market Square - always bysy and crowded.


At that day Children's Day was celebrated




 Sightseeing can be amazing here around Market Square


The main square  of the Old Town of Kraków, is the principal urban space located at the center of the city. It dates back to the 13th century, and at roughly 40,000 m2 (430,000 ft2) is one of the largest medieval town squares in Europe.The Project for Public Spaces (PPS) lists the square as the best public space in Europe due to its lively street life.
