With this up-to-date, authoritative guide you can experience all the sights of Krakow, including Best Of recommendations. You can discover great hotels, restaurants, trendy spots, entertainment venues and shopping locations; the Where to Start boxes tell you where it's best to start off on your tours. And with the Low Budget tips you'll also get ideas for travel with kids and suggestions for sport and activities. Also contains: Festivals & Events, Travel Tips, Links, Blogs, Apps & More, Useful Phrases in Polish and index. In addition, the Perfect Day is full of tips for your tour of the city from morning till evening. You'll also find the new pull-out map a useful supplement to the large street atlas. Even though Krakow's history stretches back hundreds of years, there's no question of a stuffy museum-like atmosphere. The metropolis on the Vistula is full of energy and almost Mediterranean vitality. With the MARCO POLO Krakow guide you'll be able to explore Poland's most visited city with its very special atmosphere, a mix of culture and vibrant life, of history and modernity, of looking to the future and legends of the past. With this practical guide book, small enough to slip into your pocket, you can stroll through Krakow in search of Copernicus, experience popular festivals and undertake a journey back through time surrounded by architecture of a timeless beauty. Or you can enjoy life in the city's best restaurants, cafes and clubs. The MARCO POLO Insider Tips tell you where you can eat particularly tasty pierogi, the dumplings typical of Poland; why it's worth visiting the flea market on Plac Nowy; and why you should get to the magnificent wooden altarpiece by Veit Stoss in the St. Marys Basilica at least 15 minutes before opening. The Best Of pages show where to find what's unique to Krakow, where the great places for free are and give you tips on what to do on rainy days and where you can relax and chill out. You can find out what's now all the rage in the city, whether its milk bars, outlandish designer fashion or staying in an apartment instead of a hotel. The Walking Tours show you the way to Krakow's largest fruit and vegetable market, quarters with magnificent villas or to the trendy district of Podgorze with its contrasts between Jewish ghetto and modern art. And, last but not least, the Dos & Don'ts advise you why throwing away a cigarette stub can be expensive, and why it's best not to place any trust whatsoever in traffic lights and zebra crossings. MARCO POLO Krakow gives comprehensive coverage of all the city's districts. To help you find your way around there's a detailed street atlas, plan of the tram network in the back cover and additional pull-out map.

Cancellations - non personalised/bespoke items

The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations) provide consumers with the right to a 'cooling-off' period to allow you to change your mind. Under these regulations, you have the right to cancel your order, without explanation, within 14 days of delivery (starting the day after you receive the goods) and to return the goods for a refund within a further 14 days (28 days in total). The Distance Selling Regulations do not apply to businesses nor to individuals who are trading or acting as a trader (buying goods to re-sell for profit) because no-one is the 'Consumer'. This means there is no 'cooling-off' period and the order cannot be cancelled once processed.

Where an order is placed for an item which is to be personalised or is bespoke, cancellation is not possible once production has started and these are expressly excluded from The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations).
