Krakow: Third largest city of Poland, population 760 000.
Only few highrises, but beautiful historic "skyline" ;)

I give 6/10 (because of tall church towers) and IMO this city doesn't need skyscrapers, they just don't fit there ;)

Krakow sure has some nice churches, and the skyscrapers ruins it. They should have been built outside of the city. 6/10

I really like this photo of Wawel castle- a bit old but nice:




And talking about Krakow skyline- hmmm.... I don't know if Krakow needs high modern buildings.

That blue building is very similar to a building in Västerås Sweden called Skrapan. Anyway, I've always wanted to visit this city which seems to be much better then Warsaw for some reason. Its a shame I didn't continue my drive from the Czech border. Interesting history, culture and some very beautiful buildings. Also it would be interesting to visit Auschwitz which is near by. One thing that would help this city would be to demolish those skyscrapers, they really destroy the skyline. 7/10

Yeah, my beautiful city !
Krakow has nice skyline, but it's a historical city and should be rated in a different way.
The city is in league with Prague, Stockholm, etc., not with NYC :)

skyline - Krakow as a historical city - 10/10
skyline -skyscrapers, churches, tall buildings -3.5/10

So I give 7.

Maybe its skyline is small, but Krakow is not a small town! It has almost 800 000 inhabitants (and more than million in whole agglomeration)
