Music Tours to Krakow

  • Poland’s finest city
  • Warm reception for musicians
  • Home to the country’s oldest university

Krakow is the most beautiful of all Polish cities. Largely unspoilt since the 13th century, Krakow is an architectural gem and has been rewarded with the status of a UNESCO World Cultural Site. The city’s centre is a huge medieval square, while the city’s Wawel Castle perches on a hill just outside the Old Town. Sights not to miss include the city’s Jewish quarter, made famous in recent times by the film ‘Schindler’s List’ and the salt mines of Wieliczka.
