Long Description: 
For hundreds of years Krakow has been one of the great cultural centers of Eastern Europe. We tour the city, visit the ancient castle and Cathedral on Wawel Hill, discover the origin of the croissant, look at some of the 2 1/2 million works of art in the city's museums and find out how the immodest sight of a woman's legs saved the town's Medieval wall. Burt also checks out what's cooking and visits the Jewish quarter of Krakow that was founded in the 14th century.
