As I'm going to Krakow in June I was thinking about do a kind of the "Anachronistic-travel" sugestion. but without so oldfashioned ways!
So I'm looking for someone from Poland, especially from Krakow, or someone who knows it weel to tell me about 21 places in the town I cannot miss about.
It can be sightseeings, museums, restaurants, etc.

    I know nothing about the site you mention but can I suggest you spend some time looking through the hundreds of tips and pages written about Krakow by VT locals and visitors (including me)?

    Krakow Travel Guide

    You will certainly find more than 21 places which you c'cannot miss':

    Krakow Things to Do

    and plenty of off-the-beaten-path ideas too:

    Krakow Off The Beaten Path

    You should definitely include the Old Town within the Planty (once the town walls, now an encircling park); Rynek Glowny with the Medieval Sukenniece (cloth hall) and the Basilica of St Mary; Wawel castle and St Nicholas Cathedral; the Jewish quarter of Kazimierz (allow at least half a day for this alone); the Jewish ghetto area of Podgorze with the Oscar Schindler museum...and, of course, a trip to Auschwitz (allow more than half a day) and to the Wieliczka salt mines (at least half a day).

    You could also visit the Benedictine abbey at Tyniec:

    and/or the fascinating Kalawria Zebrzydowska:

    "Just a quick whizz round............" - Kalwaria Zebrzydowska by leics

    And that's just for starters.....

    Natives and travellers will no doubt tell you to go to the castle, St. Mary's, the Cloth Market... I include Kazmierz (Jewish district) and the wonderful cafes on the square. I could spend weeks going to all the little shops, restaurants, cafes in both Kazmierz and the main square. Antique shops in Kazmierz as well. Look for "naive art" in small gallery in Kazmierz. Follow the path of the Pope and get a collection of coins offered at each one. Tour Jagellonian University.. courtyard is beautiful. There is a wonderful cultural museum on the way from main square to Kazmierz....all walkable. See my page as well as others for details on all above. Have fun! It's wonderful.

    A-Adam Mickiewicz (monument)
    B-Blonia (the biggest meadow in the center)
    C- courtyards in the old town
    D- a dragon
    E- Etnographic Museum
    F- Franciszkanie (a monastery)
    G- Grunwaldzki (a monument)
    H- Hipolit's house (museum)
    I-ice cream at Starowislna J-Jan Pawel II
    K- Kanonicza st.
    L-Las Wolski
    N- Nowa Huta district
    O- obwarzanek
    P-Plac Nowy
    S- Saints from Krakow
    T- Tyniec abbey
    U- (The Jagiellonian) University
    V -da Vinci
    W -WAWEL
    Y- Yiddish culture remains
    Z- Zablocie (Schindler's factory)
