Stop At: Zapiekanki od 1980 roku, Sienna 3, 33-332 Kraków, Poland

In Krakow, you can buy zapiekanka (a long, open-faced sandwich) everywhere, but local residents know there’s only one place where this special dish has survived the turbulent years of transformation. A microscopic shop in the middle of Sienna Street, this place still maintains tradition and, since 1980, has been selling true zapiekanka.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Main Market Square, Grodzka 2, 31-006 Kraków, Poland

Main Market Square is the real heart of today’s city of Krakow. The majority of buildings date back to the 14 and 15th centuries and have gothic basements showing the medieval level of the city. During the summertime Krakow’s Main Market Square hosts plenty of cultural and historical events including the International Jazz Festival, Independent Cinema Festival, Street Theater Festival and many others.

Duration: 15 minutes

Pass By: St. Mary's Basilica, plac Mariacki 5, 31-042 Kraków, Poland

You should be there at the top of the hour to listen to the trumpeter who plays from the highest tower of this extraordinary church, a special signal to commemorate a legendary victory over the Mongols in the 13th century. This place is always busy, but around 2pm to 4pm there are fewer people, so if you can - enjoy the Basilica in the afternoon.

Stop At: Kazmierz The Former Jewish District, Szeroka 24, Krakow 31-053 Poland

Tram to Kazimierz district .

Stop At: The New Square, Plac Nowy, Krakow Poland

Wherever you look in this area there is a bar or restaurant, and many locals will spend an entire night in this one spot.

Marchewka z Groszkiem (Carrots with Peas), situated at the corner of Wolnica Square and Mostowa Street, can be a great place for a typical Polish lunch.
