This comes after Kraków was voted the best destination for a city break for the third year running, which is pretty good going considering there’s shitloads of cities floating around Europe.
The results come from a Which? survey, which showed a 93% approval rating for the city, as well as it being rated five stars for value for money, making it the only city to be ranked thus.
The ratings took into account various different categories – such as food and drink available, accommodation, crowdedness, value, things to do, etc – and were based on nearly 5000 across 43 different cities.
