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 and 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.
