Almost the entire Old Town is closed to motor traffic, making the streets between St Florian’s Gate and the Market Square a magnificent backdrop for strolling, characterised by Renaissance, Gothic and Baroque buildings. This group of buildings, like Wawel Castle, are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Krakow’s cultural scene and nightlife are considered particularly lively. Especially popular are the jazz and cellar bars as well as the trendy pubs in the former Jewish quarter of Kazimierz, today a district of artists and nightlife.
In addition to sectors such as trade and finance, high-tech companies are also closely linked to Krakow, like tourism – an important factor in Krakow’s economy. The city attracts over ten million visitors a year and the trend is rising as Krakow has a lot to offer.
