Krakow is Poland's original capital and has a wide range of cultural attractions
Travellers looking for a solo holiday city destination in Europe should consider visiting Poland's original capital city, Krakow, according to a travel journalist working for the Daily Mail.

"The weight of history hangs heavily in Krakow. As Poland's original capital, and still the country's cultural one, the city has been at the centre of political upheaval in Europe for centuries," he noted.
"[Krakow's] magnificent Wawel cathedral and castle … are testimony to a tumultuous past."
The travel writer also noted that the old town area of the Krakow is beautiful and home to the "largest medieval plaza in Europe", the Grand Square. This is where a range of Gothic-style buildings are located and also where street performers congregate.
