Popular Destinations near Krakow
Favourite Cities and Hotels in Poland

Peerless culture and historical import make the most significant city in Poland one of the best destinations in Europe, period. While the 20th century was as unkind to Kraków as one can imagine, with the segregation and eventual extermination of a vast Jewish population by Nazi Germany in World War II and the subsequent conversion of the city into a cold, industrial Soviet satellite by Stalin, the onset of a new dawn heralds promise. One visit to Kraków is enough to convince anyone that the city, and indeed Poland as a whole, has limitless potential as a legitimate and bona fide tourism destination.

Kraków simply has it all, the result of a long history as a progressive center of intellectual and social activism. A hub of science, culture and the arts, the city boasts a dynamic populace and one of the most diverse collections of museums and architectural gems on the continent. From the Middle Ages to the Soviet Empire, traces of the past are everywhere, with enough UNESCO World Heritage eye candy to keep your digital camera busy for days.

    Cracking Krakow

    Forget Warsaw – Krakow is where it’s at! Krakow is one of Poland’s oldest cities, and oozes culture, history and charm from every pore. If you’re after medieval streets, Gothic churches and a dash of modern city life, this is the place to get it. ... Read more »

    Krakow has seen a lot in its history – and not all of it has been good. Visit the Galicia Jewish Museum to see the incredibly moving Holocaust exhibits, then head to Podgorze to visit the infamous Krakow Ghetto depicted in Schindler’s List (and where much of the film was actually made).

    Krakow also mixes relaxation with remembrance, thanks to stunning Planty Park or lush Las Wolski Forest– a hiker’s favourite. Then head to Szewska Street for great eats, a spot of shopping and a thriving nightlife.

    2. Cloth Hall Renaissance architecture with a hint of Gothic goodness! This city icon has a museum and plenty of handicraft traders within its walls.

    6. Old Synagogue The oldest synagogue in the country has seen a hell of a lot over the years. Plus, it’s pretty on the inside.

    1. Market Square The historic city centre is home to plenty of medieval building and local buzz.

    The Crossroads Traditional Music Festival in late July features concerts and workshops. If you’re not a hard-core folk fan, look out for the genre-mix concerts featuring folk combined with a little jazz, pop and even rap.

    The STREETART International Festival of Street Theatre fills Market Square with jugglers, magicians, contortionists and puppeteers. It’s fun, it’s colourful and free! July to September.

    August’s Coke Live Music Festival features everything from R&B to rock and local acts to international megastars.

    Locals compete to create the best szopkas (super-embellished, multistorey cots topped with city images) for December’s Nativity Cribs. Very cool.

    When To Go

    • Krakow’s summers are pretty mild at around 23°C (73ºF), but its winters can be brutal. Expect it to get as low as -5°C (23ºF) during the day and -15°C (5ºF) at night. Rug up, kids!
    • If you want an event-filled trip, head over in summer for the festivals.
    • Summer is also the wettest time of year, so be prepared!

    Getting Around

    • Public transport is pretty, with trams, trains and buses. Stick to the buses and trams in town, as the trains are best only if you’re city-hopping.
    • If you’re up for some walking, Krakow is pretty easy to explore on foot.
    • Don’t bother hiring yourself a car – the parking is horrendous/expensive and the locals’ driving skills are… interesting. Hire a bike, instead.
