According to legends, the name of Kraków comes from a king named Krakus, who apparently saved the city from a dangerous dragon that roamed around the Wawel Hill in the 7th century, and the 16-meter-high artificial hill in the city is actually home to the king's tomb. The dragon, which is called Smok Wawelski in Polish, has become a symbol of the city - so much in fact that there is a statue of it, which breathes fire every five minutes... Pretty impressive!
In order to make this already pretty surreal experience even more memorable, you should get on a horse-drawn carriage - they are red or white, with large vintage wheels and look like something out of a fairy tale. The atmosphere won't disappoint you, as the coachmen really make sure to stay in character and to keep their presentation perfect so that you feel the magic. Because the historic center of the city is pedestrian, the trip will really take you out of time and make you feel in a magical world, while providing information on the architecture and history of the monuments.
