Tips and tricks for visiting Krakow

Say ‘smachnago’ (a Polish equivalent of ‘bon appétit’) before eating, and ‘na zdrowie’ (cheers) before drinking, to blend in with the locals. Casual wear is acceptable for most social occasions, but the norm is to dress up for evening entertainment, dining out, opera, theatre, etc. As you explore the city on foot, beware of pickpockets in any crowded place; especially during travel on public transport. You must also watch your luggage closely.
