Overall rating

4.6 / 5

based on 7 reviews

I freshened up the pictures I had seen for a long time. I've been here many times. In my youth, the gallery was more extensive, but that was enough. And the magic of Krakow is undeniable. In addition, the weather was good. Best regards.

For art lovers, I recommend it. Average for those completely not interested in painting.
