Kraków (pronounced ‘Krak-Ov’) is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Poland. It sits in the south of the country, near the border of the Czech Republic. It has a well preserved medieval core and a vibrant Jewish quarter. Enlisted on the UNESCO heritage list since 1978, Kraków is surrounded by two major tourist sites: the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum (which includes the Nazi concentration camps Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II-Birkenau) and the Salt Mines in Wieliczka (both sites are also on the UNESCO list as well).
Paris is the most romantic and cliched of all the world’s travel destinations. People dream of its art, cafes, history, food, gardens, style and endless historical and cultural icons. Its poetic name is even the City of Lights. These are big boots to fill. And, to its credit, Paris often lives up the mythos.
Paris is also a living, breathing, heaving world city. Every day some 12 million residents mill around its various arrondissements. Among them is a daily load of 90,000-odd tourists. So behind the fairytale, Paris is still a very big, extremely busy and globally important city. The touchstones of its glamour obscure a place that’s always rebuilding itself, innovating, changing and thriving.
