Begin your evening at Michalik's Cave in central Krakow. Once a bustling hub for the city’s bohemian crowd, you'll see that the venue has preserved its artsy atmosphere, as you sit among paintings and caricatures of Krakow artists, writers and journalists. Relax and enjoy as the concert and dance performance begins. Learn about Polish traditions and folklore as you watch performers dressed in regional costumes tell their stories through dance and folk music. If you feel like getting up on your feet, you’ll be invited to join in with the dancing, too. Afterward, savor a 3-course dinner of traditional Polish fare amid the lively atmosphere. With appetites sated, your dinner show will conclude after the meal.
First off, this was an experience and a half! We booked for our first evening in krakow for an immersive experience and this didn’t disappoint! The music and dancing was amazing, lots of crowd participation which was real fun! My sister (who I went with) is a pretty fussy eater but managed ok with the food. I on the other hand am a foodie and it was ok for me too. Not amazing but for a experience what do you expect?! If you want to do something different on your next trip, this is the experience for you!
Indulge your ears with the sounds of Chopin’s piano music, and experience one of the most important elements of culture. Appreciate the genius of Poland’s best-known composer in the unique atmosphere of Krakow's Market Square. Attend a special concert dedicated to Frederic Chopin, an icon of Polish and European music and a piano virtuoso in his own right, and listen to his most famous piano pieces performed by talented young pianists. Concerts are held in the Chopin Concert Hall, decorated with Gothic architectural elements. Listen to nocturnes, mazurkas, and polonaises, in which Chopin expressed his feeling of longing for his homeland. The combination of atmospheric interior and excellent music will provide an unforgettable experience, and not just for music aficionados.
Very pleasant evening! Go to the square for dinner and then walk to the concert hall. A gentleman will give you a warm welcome and a glass of wine. The room itself sits maybe 50 people, but there were about 7 people there on a weekday night. This was great because it felt more intimate and you were much more connected to the pianist. This is how music should be listened to! The concert is about an hour, so it’s perfect after a long day of exploring. Afterwards, find a place serving dessert pierogies!
Enjoy a performance by the Royal Chamber Orchestra. The Royal Chamber Orchestra is an ensemble consisting of outstanding musicians from Krakow, who graduated from The Academy of Music, giving performances all over the world.

The concert hall has unique acoustic and the intimate atmosphere.
6pm concert was cancelled and we were told to go to a different venue at 7.30pm. No reflection on the musicians though, the performance lasted for 50 mins and was an enjoyable take on film scores. Good way to spend an hour on a Saturday evening

My guide was very knowledgeable and, more importantly, very eager to share his knowledge. I learned a lot and got to visit some very interesting sites. I loved seeing the abandoned steelworks building and the bunker. Very creepy and atmospheric! This was a great tour and I highly recommend. (Also you get to ride around in a classic Polish Fiat car which will get you lots of attention from passerby—very funny!)
Timely and efficient transportation to the camps where they then set us up with a guide associated with the Auschwitz-Birkenau sites. We were helped along every step of the way and it was a very efficient process. I highly recommend using this service.
It was a very educational but at the same time very somber experience going through the gory details of the horrors brought by Nazis. Pickup was smooth and our guide was exceptionally knowledgeable. Highly recommended.
Great communication!!! Guides were friendly and knowledgeable!! They made it stress free and easy to navigate. Highly recommend using them.
This was a brilliant experience. Could not have asked for more. Pickup from hotel was smooth and on time. Highly recommended!!
