Kicking Back in Krakow

“Krakow is one of my favorite places on earth. It is a medieval city full of young people. A wonderful, striking combination.” (Jonathan Carrol: USA Author)

Krakow is possibly the best place in Poland to party!! And for incentive travel groups there are a number of new boutique hotels that are in “historic” converted properties.

Krakow is many things to many people; from international students to millions of tourists to conference delegates, ICE Krakow Congress Centre and incentive travel visitors.

And to provide contrast to your city incentive stay check out Zakopane in the Tatra Mountains.

Poland shares Europe’s second biggest mountain range with other central European countries and Poland’s share has six peaks over 2,000 metres – so a good place for winter sports.

But there is so much more outside of winter – from rafting to hiking, from visiting pretty spa towns and villages to meeting Poland’s mountain people, who have a preserved culture apart from the rest of Poland.
