What Was the Main Reason Why Krakow Won?

Excellent value for money, because cities in Poland – as compared to other European destinations – are simply relatively cheap. That, together with rich history, interesting places to visit (including Wieliczka Salt Mine and The Auschwitz concentration camp, and delicious food, contributes to an amazing experience that tourist live there. What is more, the presence of many low cost airlines like Ryanair, easyJet and WizzAir makes it cheap to get there.
