Don’t judge us for telling you to ‘travel back in time’ on Krakow’s streets. This is a city where you can easily go back to its medieval roots for a weekend – and work forward from there. Feast on pork knuckles soaked in ale in a beer hall. Wander the cobbles into a sailing tavern – albeit far from shore. Or head underground to see where Krakow’s traders used to sell their wares. The fact the below ground attraction comes with futuristic holograms and laser shows might tempt even the most history-phobic among us to take a peek.

Away from the history? Well, it’s actually tricky to move away from it at all. In THE best way. The most futuristic building in Krakow is the contemporary art museum, but even they are digging back into the decades to curate Polish art’s history. Embrace this city’s past, even the worst of it. Take a stroll through the now romantic streets of the Kazimierz to see how the former Jewish quarter has regenerated from the horrors of WWII. Or head out of Krakow – just for a while – to see the artistic endeavours in the area’s salt mine. You’ll not look at a chandelier in the same way again. Stepping back in time needn’t be boring and fusty, and Krakow proves that time and again.
