Over 46,000 punters took part in the Conde Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards 2012, with Krakow finishing joint eighth in the Top European Cities category, alongside Prague.
Unsurprisingly, Poland's 'cultural capital' performed well in the 'culture/sites' ratings, with readers allotting the city 91.7 points out of 100 in this area.
Krakow also won readers' approval in general 'ambience', notching up 89.3 points there.
However, the southern Polish city was notably let down in the shopping sphere, gaining just 62.9 points in that field.
Here Krakow was no match for Paris (4th in the overall ratings), which gained 84.2 points for shopping.
Nevertheless, the Polish city did decisively beat the French capital on 'friendliness', by 80.7 points to 52.3.
The overall winner in Conde Nast's Top European Cities this year was Florence, followed by Barcelona and Rome. (nh)
