Would you like to see the less formal face of Krakow? Trust us and book yourself time after 5 p.m., to witness the former capital of Poland unbuttoning its tight, corporate collar. When all other guides put aside their umbrellas and microphones, we get down to work. After hours, Krakow is engaging, modern, and surprising, and so much different from the one you can see from the perspective of monuments and museums. Let’s discover the entertaining, relaxed, international side of this amusing city! Krakow by night is very cultural: it likes exhibitions and concerts. In the summer, it tempts with an open air cinema, while in the winter – invites to warm interiors for mulled wine. Sometimes, it favours lazy pub crawls, sometimes it gets you engaged in a friendly conversation with other visitors from around the world.
Swap Krakow for a day trip to the charming village of Zalipie, which is known for its colorful floral motifs on cottages.

Learn about folk traditions and why people paint their cottages with flowers, see the Museum of Felicia Curylo, and visit the House of Painters.

During World War II, the Poguzhe district was the site of a Jewish ghetto, but even now, 75 years after the end of the war, the district keeps a part of those events. Much of it reminds its current inhabitants of the horrors of war and of the need to prevent such things from happening. You'll see the famous Plac Bohaterów Getta (Ghetto Heroes' Square), where Jews were selected and taken to concentration camps, also you'll see a fragment of the original Ghetto wall , which now serves as a monument and place of pilgrimage for many Jews. There are houses where thousands of displaced Jews used to live, and the pharmacy "Under the Eagle".It's always very interesting to walk these streets and learn their history from a to z
Zalipie – is about sixty minutes drive from Krakow, a charming painted village discovered in 1905 by Władysław Hickel, who was fascinated with the local tradition of painting houses in colourful floral patterns. The custom started at the end of the 19th century when women started decorating not only the interiors of their cottages but also the outer walls, farm buildings, fences and even dog kennels and tree trunks. Zalipie village is not an open-air museum; most of the buildings are actual functioning households. the village school, post office, and church were also painted in flower compositions.
