I stayed in Krakow in September and was an experience of a life time loved every single minute of it Poland is stunning and Auschwitz is (don't want to say it) but amazing and educational and I genuinely think everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime. I also found Krakow to be cheap and easily done on a budget.
I’ve been to Krakow twice and enjoyed both times so much, such a beautiful city. Can recommend the salt mine - we did Auschwitz and the salt mine as one day package. Also, there are so many museums in Krakow centre with very little fees. Walking around and sight seeing is also great.
I went to Krakow for a weekend with a friend but did wonder off on my own. I felt completely safe and most people were very friendly. We stayed in a hostel in the main square of Old Town Krakow.
Things to do: Schindlers' Factory Museum is a top 3 for me. Hire a golf cart driver for about $15 US for a 90 minute tour (there is no hop on hop off). Food: Food is fabulous. Safety: Look up Indigo Hotel Krakow. One of my favorite small hotels in East Europe. Recommendations: Krakow is very walkable, beautiful, safe and affordable.
Krakow is pretty cool. Go on viator and you can do some pretty cool tours from there. I went to the salt mine I've never seen anything like it. There's also tours at Auschwitz and Birkenau, but that's a very heavy experience emotionally so make sure you're in the right head space if you do that.
You should definitively take a free walking tour through the old town, visit the castle on the wawel and the fire spreading wawel-dragon!
I loved it. I did a pierogi making class in someone’s home (through Airbnb experiences). Salt mine in Wieliczka, main square, cathedrals castle near main square, Auschwitz - I took the bus and it was easy. I pre-booked an English speaking tour/ticket through the Auschwitz-Birkenau website. I loved Krakow. I used Uber and Uber eats in Krakow, by the way. Super affordable and reliable.

I loved Krakow. I went in November and enjoyed it very much. Felt very safe. Very walkable city. People were friendly. I stayed at “Hotel Wit Stwosz”, very close to the Main square and the rates were affordable.
Krakow is quite a small city and I spent 2 days there. The main things I saw there was Auschwitz, the salt mine and the Jewish quarter. I'd recommend the Jewish walking tour if you're interested in exploring that part as you learn so much more than researching everything online and then forgetting it half way round!
Krakow was freaking amazing. To eat, I do recommend Vincenzo Pedone Pizza Napoletana (far away from city center but a hidden gem! Pizzas are amazing), Krowarzywa (Old Town, Vegan fast food), Farma Burgerownia Róslinna. Thing to do: At Krakow itself: the Old Town, Kazimierz (historical district), Wawel Castle, and the Oskar Schlinder’s Factory. Day trips: Salt Mine (Wieliczka), Auschwitz (Oswięcim) and Birkenau
