Krakow Holidays

With one of the largest medieval squares in the world, stately castles and a scenic riverfront, Krakow has become a highlight on anyone's 'grand tour' of Europe. The historic city center (Stare Miasto) is best visited by a stroll down The Royal Way past St. Florian's Gate, the Rynek Glowny (the biggest Medieval square in Europe) and the famous ... Read more
Wawel castle, home of Poland’s past kings. Those interested in Krakow’s longtime Jewish population should visit the Jewish district of Kazimierz. For a more somber but important lesson in history, spend a day at the nearby Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camps.

Things to see and do in Krakow




Weather-wise, Krakow is loveliest in the late spring (mid-May to mid-June) and early fall (mid-September to mid-October), not to mention less crowded. Visiting Krakow during these quieter times of the year will ... Read more
not only give you more elbow room to explore this fascinating city, but you’ll also score lower rates. That’s not to say that summer is off-limits: June to August are equally pleasant in terms of weather with temperatures in the low 70s Fahrenheit (low 20s Celsius), and the city is alive with festivals. By European standards, winter isn’t all that bad either; yes, it’s cold (average highs range between 33-37, or 0-2), but it can also be beautiful, especially around the holidays.

Fantastic food. I loved the ambient here. I made friends with some students that helped me practice my Russian. PolskiBus never came to pick me up so all of us had to take the train. Met a hype marathon runner there.

One of the best cities in all of Poland with tremendous medieval history. It’s also very walkable and has one of the largest public squares in all of Europe.

Krakow is a must see city in Poland. Its more like a medieval town with well kept buildings, fortunately was not destroyed in the World War II. You just get a feeling that you were transported back to the past when you were walking around the old town square.

Beautiful old town area! Great cafes and museums, safe, reasonably priced and fun!give it a try!!close by to Auschwitz and Salt Mines. Both are accessible day trips. Tons of history and we highly recommend the free walking tours. (Just give the guide a generous tip at the end). We even did a macabre tour in the evening that was fascinating but not for the faint of heart. Nice horse drawn carriages also circle the huge old town.

But for the lingering streak of Soviet bureaucratic mentality running through a segment of the population Kraków is a five star city. History, culture, good restaurants and hotels - the city has all of them.

Krakow is city which is loved. They care very well about him and you rarely see any trash on the street. The historical centre is breath-taking and if you wanna just chill out and the Jewish square is perfect choice.

Possibly Poland's most popular destination, Krakow, is a great place to learn about Poland. Although it's been visited by many travelers but the city still keeps the original charm.

A very interesting place to visit. A lot of historic sights and places of interest like the Jewish Quarter and Auschwitz. The biggest surprise was the quality of the food which was inexpensive and at the gourmet level, organic and very fresh.
