Backpacking tips: How to spend budget holidays in Krakow

You will taste the bitter-sweet tourist flavor of Krakow as soon as you arrive in the old town on a summer day. Just ignore the bored horse carriage drivers and their far too expensive offers. Be ready to share experiences with thousand other tourists. And be clever enough to visit the famous Wawel Castle and other attractions for free, go on a culinary time travel and try cheap traditional food in a Bar Mleczny. Open your ears for exceptional street musicians. Encounter your own fear in the Alley of Lost Souls and dive into shocking history. We loved Krakow.
