    The history of the Czech capital goes back a millennium. From Charles Bridge to the achingly beautiful skyline, the city is a feast for the eyes. Sampling the beer is a must too; a pint of some of the world's finest will typically set you back around £1.

    Boasting magnificent architecture, Kraków is an underrated gem. Wawel Castle imposingly punctuates the cityscape whilst the Old Town's little gauntlets emanate a quaint, peaceful ambiance. The former Jewish Quarter, Kazimierz, serves as a poignant and important reminder of the tragedies of last century and the city holds Europe's largest market square - Rynek Glówny. Low prices in hostels, hotels, bars and restaurants ensure you'll have a great trip for less.
