Plac Nowy - Kazimierz, Krakow: 5 reviews and 10 photos

  Plac Nowy - Kazimierz
by breughel

The booklet "Krakow in your pocket" mentions "if you want something completely different from the Old Town, here it is".
Indeed completely different and of no interest.
Comparing the fast food hatch Endzior as a must see like the Coliseum in Rome makes me suspect that either the redactor of "Krakow in your pocket" had been exaggerating on "pivo" or has acquired a high degree of self derision.

Nevertheless there are two interesting things at Plac Nowy:
1° There are a couple of taxis waiting to drive you back to the Old Town.
2° At 200 m southwards you will find the Basilica of Corpus Christi (Kosciol Bozego Ciala) a real must see in Kazimierz-Krakow.

PS. Reading again my nasty review and looking at those reviews about night life at Plac Nowy, I admit that my bad temper was due to the need of drinking a good Porter beer from Okocim brewery but this "Baltic Porters beer" seemed difficult to find in Krakow.

Address: Kazimierz district
Directions: To the south-est of the old town

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
