Why Visit Krakow: a dark past but a beautiful city to explore

Good evening everyone! I thought that I should give you an insight into one of the prettiest Easter European cities that I have visited so far. In my previous post, I talked about the delicious food that satisfied my extremely hungry belly so I wanted to save this post to talk about the charming city that is Krakow.
