Other famous and old cities are Kraków with its cathedral and its old town, the medieval Hanseatic city of Gdańsk, the old city of Wrocław with its famous cathedral, Lublin with its impressive Jewish history, or Medieval Toruń, the birthplace of Copernicus. The memorial museums in Auschwitz, a UN world heritage site, and other holocaust related sites are also of interest. The bigger Polish cities are especially interesting for backpackers because of their young population, affordable cultural events and many pubs.
