It is not so easy to explain why Kraków is such a grate city to people who have never been in here. Mayby it is an atmosphere given by old original townscape, not destroyed by the none of the world wars. It is also possible that one 120,000 of Kraków’s students makes this city en ever green. I may be a merit of the cultural life. Or all those facts is that Kraków want’s to be a place which is a melting pot for the cultures. It effectivelly pretends to be a middle east metropoly, city of sophisticated culture, art and science. Kraków is a hometown for seventeen highier schools. Yet Kraków’s nighlife is still concencrated around the market square. Second biggest after St. Mark’s place in Vennezia. In here the history melts with the modern ages on every step.
This is also a place of many many hostels in Krakow. Institution of hostel was developed in late nineties thanks to the new type of an tourist. We call them now Drifters or Backpackers. A backpacker is a kind of person who does not particularly need to be guided all the time, these individualists know how to manage to travel around the world without help of any travel agency. Often well educated and generally aware people. They are still travelling with the company of their backcpack.
Hostel’s were response for the need of explore new possibilities to know random people all over the world. In fact, not so random since hostel industry is overwhelmed by backpackers. Theese people are often travelling single and common rooms, shared kitchens were a grate opportunity to meet some new. Kracow is full of hostels. Travelling in here is very easy. Theese hostel are often cooperatin with travel agencies or shuttle agencies. “Bus of Krakow Shuttle is the most convenient way to get to the Auschwitz or Wieliczka Salt Mine” says Mark – receptionist at Giraffe Hostel and Bar, which is one of best and most poppulat hostels in Kraków. Most of such a places differs from hostel only with the number of beds in the room. Staff is usually friendly and provides grate quality of services. These people Just know where to go, how to it, how to travel and where in Krakow you can get a shot of cherry vodka an a beer for only 5 PLN. Usually fluent English speakers and party seekers.
