~ MAGIC IN THE AIR ~
I remember my first private trip to Krakow, and by "private" I mean other than a schoolkids' excursion. It was around 6:00 am on a summer's day when me and my friend strolled into the Old Town Market Square. I can still recall the view of the square that was slowly preparing for a new day... People short-cutting their way through the square, cafes staff rearranging tables outside, street vendors setting up flowers on their little stands by the Mickiewicz monument... the smells... the sounds... the thrill...
The thrill that I relive every time I go to Krakow... The awareness of the Royal City's grandeur throughout Poland's history. The beauty of its old architecture. The ambience of great culture, art and literature. The charm of its numerous cafes, bars and pubs, always full of locals and tourists...

More tips will be added in time
so please revisit some day! :-)
