We will take you on a 5-day gay group tour of Krakow. Krakow is probably the most beautiful city in Poland: romantic and inspiring, a fairytale setting. The largest medieval square in Europe in the heart of Krakow is surrounded by magnificent Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and Art Nouveau buildings. A castle that appears in lists of the most beautiful castles in Europe. A century-old salt mine that is a work of art for chambers and galleries.
A historic center where horse-drawn carriages share the cobbled streets with the population. Krakow is also an excellent base for visiting the Nazi concentration camp at Auschwitz-Birkenau.
The city is very old, yes, but not frozen in time. Krakow perfectly combines its past with modern dynamism. The historic neighborhoods have trendy cafes and bars that share space with century-old buildings and typical dairy shops. The growing student population both energizes cafes and nightclubs and fills concert halls, museums and galleries.
Although small, Krakow also has a fantastic gay night.
