Let me talk about Krakow!


Hi, there! I’ve been in Krakow and working around here. So I’d love to introduce about Krakow. This city is called “Kyoto in Poland” 🙂  Although I’m really not sure if it is , I personally like it quite a bit. 🙂  Enjoy reading along with a lot of picture taken by me.

Old Town

Old town is the most famous place in Krakow. It’s not too much to say that Krakow is old town, Old town is Krakow! When I walked around in the city, an old lady asked me where old city is. Yes, everyone is coming here for the sake of OLD TOWN!


The area surrounded by green is Old town. And the middle of it is used as market place. All year round, various events take place here. I came here in Christmas season  hence Xmas market has been held.

クラクフ 中央広場This is a market place above.Although the first day I visited was cloudy, the rest of term was good weather!  Every Christmas markets definitely have a big Christmas tree. Of course Warsaw dose.  I’ve seen four trees in only Krakow! They can be found hands down everywhere.クラクフ 馬車 3000円Wow. The carriages await for travelers. I finally felt it’s Eastern Europe. The price to ride on it is 100zl . I guess it’s expensive for only one person , but it’s affordable for a group. It’s equipped with a roof in order to prevent people form getting wet. All season it’s avilable!クラクフ クリスマス マーケットThey are selling various things such as sausages, flowers , breadstuff, trinket, beer and so on.. 😆 All of them is attractive for me. クラクフ 旧市街It’s market palace here too. Nevertheless there is a lot of people inviting you to the restaurant due to visiting area .So-called “barker”. This is the only one thing that I’m tired of traveling. It reminds me of Thailand and Cambodia.  🙂 It’s OK.haha
i love krakowIKrakow. So I do.クラクフ 絵を得る人Many people were selling pictures like this. The others were playing the guitar, singing a song and so on. Making the city colorful. Thanks!クラクフ 中央広場It was sunny!  Since the sun doesn’t get high , even it’s fine weather , there is a lot of shadows.towerMain building in market place. it named “Town Hall Tower” You can go inside by using Krakow Card that I mentioned before.頭Head

DSC09903I came across “Ra-men burger” It’s from Japan for sure. Although I’m Japanese, I’ve never tried this. I wanna eat it some other day.
DSC09910And then I also came across Kościół Na Skałce. I wasn’t sure if this is famous or not. But many people was coming.

DSC09923You can go inside. Some people was praying.
DSC09924Definitely looks like Europe.


I suggest you have to go to Auschwitz when you visit to Krakow. You wouldn’t pay a lot of money. Actually I paid less than 30zl for all round trip to Auschwitz.

Bottom line

How was it? At first I was like there is a lot of people visiting here… I got tired of it… However more time I walked around here, more interesting I felt.
