Did you know Poland has, throughout history, had many different capital cities, and Krakow was the capital of Poland for over 500 years from 1038 to 1596?

Here are 37 pictures we took during our long weekend in Kraków.  It has a gorgeous old town with plenty of history, making it a great place to visit.
