How to get around Krakow

Krakow is a small city and entirely walk-able. Most of the main sights are centered around the medieval square, Wawel hill and the district of Kazimiez. If you want to take public transport there is a tram system but unfortunately google maps doesn't support it, which does make it harder to use.
