Krakow, Poland

Often referred to as the "new Prague", Krakow is considered the cultural center of Poland. Krakow is known for its museums and its extremely well-preserved architecture, including castles and cathedrals dating back to the Medieval and Renaissance periods. However, while its roots are deep, Krakow isn't stuck in the dark ages. This city has a vibrant social scene, with one of its most notable events being Carnival - a two-month non-stop party in January and February with events at restaurants and nightclubs throughout the city. If you can't make it for Carnival, other festivals are held throughout the year, giving travelers many chances to celebrate with the locals no matter the season. Before heading to Krakow, don't forget to purchase a European rail pass so you can take advantage of the great rail system with short trips to neighboring countries such as Germany and the Czech Republic.
