A city founded on legends and fairytales, Kraków mix of old-world charm, eccentric sights, a hobbity aura and grand architectural wonders. Here you can roam around the huge, 13th century square and the ancient churches, explore the Wawel Royal Castle, a sight that would have looked right at home in Narnia, go crazy with the underground eateries and innumerable chocolate shops (with bunnies the size of spaniels), and a footbridge to which lovers have attached thousands of padlocks.
