Going in a few weeks. I’m sure plenty of you have been there. Anyone recommend what’s to do, apart from Auschwitz. Any decent bars or restaurants I should visit? Anywhere good to go sightseeing? Thanks in advance.

Lovely city. Loads of decent bars and restaurants in and around the main square and the smaller squares like in the Jewish quarter. The salt mine is quite a decent trip. Tatras mountains are beautiful. Depends how long you're there.

You will find bars and restaurants in the Kazimierz (Jewish) district are generally cheaper than old town, it’s only a short walk from one to the other. Saying that Pijalnia is a great little cheap bar in the old town.

The Kazimierz has a few historical sights if your interested in seeing them, like a small amount of the old ghetto wall and heroes square, Schindler’s factory is worth a visit which isn’t too far.

There is a castle to see and it has some big old churches/cathedrals. Just wandering around the old town and Kazimierz is a nice way to spend a few mornings or afternoons.

Auschwitz is a harrowing place but is well worth visiting, it’s a full day trip out of Krakow, as is the salt mines that you can visit.

Auswitz is worth it alone. I have no shame in admitting I cried. The Jewish quarter is mint as are the salt mines

It's a beautiful city - if you're at all interested in architecture, keep your eyes up; Krakow came through the wars mostly unscathed, so the old gothic and baroque buildings are still intact.

You will be spoilt for choice if you're bar-hopping - and some of the underground ones have amazing interiors; if you're a foodie, Trip Advisor has some great recommendations - but I also had some really good street food, which was dirt cheap.

As others have said, Auschwitz is a must - but be prepared for a very emotional experience; I went on day 1, and found it really difficult to shake off how it left me feeling for the rest of the trip.

Enjoy!
