Description from the owner
This basement conversion in a 19th century Krakow town house has three main selling points: its proximity to the Old Town, its proximity to the Jewish quarter and its small size, which makes it perfect for couples travelling independently who want an entire home for themselves.
Located on the upper end of Starowislna Street, the apartment is conveniently located between the Old Town and the Jewish Quarter, which are the two most important places of interest in the centre of Krakow.
The whole area of the apartment is about the size of a typical en suite hotel room but is organised to make use of all the space. In the apartment you'll find:

Additional Location Information
Just 150 metres from the front door is the Old Town (Stare Miasto), which is full of historic buildings. The most famous and the most conspicuous of them is the Sukiennice right in the middle of the central square (Rynek). The Sukiennice was built in the 15th century when Krakow was one of the major European trading towns. In the old town itself there are lots of shops, cafés, bars, restaurants and clubs to suit any budget or taste. Every hour during the daytime you can hear a trumpeter signalling the change of hour from the four sides of the tower on the cathedral of St. Mary (kosciol mariacki). The tradition dates back to the 13th century Tartar invasion of Krakow. You can also see one of the oldest university buildings in Europe: Collegium Maius, which belongs to the famous Jagellonian University of Krakow and was built in the 15th century. The royal Wawel castle is located on a hill to the south. There is a museum there, a cathedral and a spectacular courtyard. From the castle walls you can enjoy grand views of the Vistula river and Krakow itself.
In the opposite direction from Krakow Old Town you can find the famous Krakow Jewish Quarter called Kazimierz. Krakow has a long association with the Jewish diaspora. There had been a separate Jewish settlement in Krakow for at least 600 years - from the 14th century up until World War II. There are still many original buildings which used to belong to Jewish families. Kazimierz has its own unkempt charm, quite different from the polished appearance of the Old Town. It has lots of unusually decorated bars and restaurants, often featuring artefacts from the nearby antique market. On the opposite bank of the Vistula river you will find the former Jewish ghetto and a part of the original ghetto wall and Oscar Schindler's enamel factory, which now houses a museum documenting the history of the factory and Schindler's workers.
