Leveraging our trip to Warsaw we would be by 4 days settled into one of the days to go Krakow, It is one of the oldest Polish cities, according to legend, it was built over a cave of a dragon slain by King Krak.

Krakow today is a very cultural city in Poland and very romantic, with its beautiful old town, but in the past it was the Nazi government capital during World War II and still holds a sad air which is most evident in the concentration camp of Plaszow, Auschwitz (will visit the concentration camp buy a ticket before) and Oskar Schindler Factory (buy advance tickets here), the famous movie Schindler's List which is based on real events happened in these city.
