    Explore the Polish masterpiece of Krakow

    I used this book when I spontaneously found myself on a 28 hour bus ride to Krakow....This book has everything; dining, hotels, cultural events, and historical sites. It is the best travel book to have when you travel to Krakow. It even lists what to do outside of the city; Wielyzca Salt Mines, Zakopane, and of course Auschwitz-Birkenau. Of course this is only a mere book, so you must experience firsthand the culture and atmosphere of the most beautiful city in Eastern Europe.
