We can recommend you from experience to explore this city street by street. That is because its diversity in such a small place. The best way to do that is to take a Krakow walking tour with KrakowDirect. It will let you walk through the city and carefully observe how it changes in different district. The first stop is, of course, Krakow old town. The beautiful heart of the city is hard to ommit, that's why it is really crowded as well.

These two cities are real daisies in the southern Poland. Zakopane tour from Krakow takes about 1,5h and is available through the whole year.
