Poland. Much more than you expect!
A garden of nature and a treasure trove of cultural riches inhabited by a friendly, hospitable people:)
Said by many to be the most beautiful city in Poland, it is often referred to as the 'Florence of the North'. Kraków boasts one of the best-preserved medioeval city centers in Europe and unlocks a time-capsule of over 600 years of history, architecture and art
