What people are saying about Krakow Old Town

I very much enjoyed the show, with good music, singing and dancing and it was obvious for those from the audience who wished to participate in the dancing with the performers thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The table service was also very good.

The food is surprisingly good. It's not terribly expensive. The folk group involves everyone in the act, which sounds horrifying, but end up being pretty fun. Both of my daughters enjoyed it.

Fantastic concert !!! Who loves Chopin will be delighted !!! Way to go !

The concert was wonderful both me and my husband enjoyed it.
