Krakow unforgettable restaurants...

Krakow gastronomy has a long and glorious tradition that dates back to the famously lavish medieval and Renaissance feasts and the Baroque extravaganzas of Polish gentry gourmets. And the city’s legendary restaurants of the past two centuries are fondly remembered. Yet recent decades have brought about a genuine restaurant explosion owing to the hectic efforts of aspiring restaurateurs, native as well as immigrants.

Krakow’s historical Old Town central district seems virtually stuffed with establishments catering to all kinds of diners. Here, within easy walking distance, one discovers hundreds of restaurants, cafes, bistros, grills, pizzerias, salad bars, etc. They are lodged in every available space of the area’s old palatial residences and stately burgher houses – upstairs, downstairs, and most willingly in those vast ancient cellars. No doubt, the exquisite and picturesque period interiors are a premium. And from springtime through autumn the restaurant tables take up the streets of the mostly pedestrian precinct.

A couple of blocks south another scenic downtown district, Kazimierz famed for its past Jewish quarter, also boasts numerous eateries. And still further to the south is the city's newly established gastronomic frontier in historic Podgorze town across Wisla river.
