I'm working on an essay for a literary competition about Polish culture and need to discuss aspects of Polish culture that are unique to the city of Krakow. Any ideas would be helpful :)

How about you go there. Rent a place for a month or two and experience it for yourself.

Wieliczka salt mine (and outlying locality but interesting); also the Easter custom rekawka, obwazanki, pigeons and flower vendors in the old Main Marketplace... are a few things that come to mind. Naturally the Hejnal and the story behind it.

The episode on Poland airs quite frequently on PBS television. Ironically, it was shown last night, after I made my post about suggesting he watch the program:)
