Explore Krakow

Poland’s most popular tourist destination, Krakow is home to an incredible array of attractions and things to do. Ogle at magnificent Wawel Castle, marvel at the bizarre remedies of the Museum Of Pharmacy, stop for a spot of people watching in Rynek Główny (the medieval town square) or take a tour of the beautiful Old Town from the back of a romantic horse-drawn carriage. For a poignant reminder of Krakow’s recent history, visit the former Jewish quarter, Kazimierz, explore Oskar Schindler’s Factory, or take a day trip to the Auschwitz camp. Once back in Krakow, head to a cosy restaurant to sample some traditional Polish cuisine. Local specialties include bigos (sauerkraut and meat stew), kotlet schabowy (breaded pork cutlet), pierogi (filled dumplings) and gołąbki (stuffed cabbage.) Whatever you order, be sure to finish with a slice of makowiec (poppy seed cake.) If you choose self-catering Krakow accommodation you can also take advantage of the city’s fabulous open-air markets. Here, stock up on fresh fruit and veagetables, meat, cheeses, spices and baked goods, not only saving money on dining out, but shopping amongst the locals for a true taste of Krakow life.

When to go to Krakow

The peak months for tourists to visit Krakow are between June and September, although spring and autumn are also great times for a Krakow holiday thanks to their mild weather.

Getting to and around Krakow

Most tourists arrive in Krakow via flights to Kraków Airport, although you can also travel to Krakow via trains to Dworzec Główny PKP (Central Station.) Once in Krakow, the city centre is easily explored on foot, while buses and trams provide excellent public transport options.
