Krakow is known as the party capital of Poland and i was excited to visit it for a few hours while i was to attend COP24 in Katowice. Poland was never really on my European countries to visit list but only when i read about its rich culture and history I came to know how unique and charming Krakow really was. I was especially hooked to Krakow old town I was looking forward to visit it in December thanks to the Christmas markets and participate in the festivities around it. Winter in Poland means the daytime lasts only a few hours – 7:30 am to 3:30pm which means you have less time to explore the city. You can also read Why you should spend Christmas in Poland.
