History and Beauty Combined
Poland’s jewel and its most popular tourist destination, Kraków, features many medieval, Renaissance and Baroque architectural examples. Its entire Old Town is a World Heritage Site and the rest of the city has even more to offer.
The beautiful Royal Coronation Route, traversed in the past by the Kings of Poland, allows you to see the stunning Cloth Hall, standing proudly at the Main Market Square, the 15th-century Barbican, and St. Mary’s Basilica with the world’s largest Gothic altarpiece and the amazing Wawel Castle.
The picturesque streets of the Kazimierz district have Jewish-themed restaurants, bookstores and small shops. Stylish cafés can be found all over the city and trendy restaurants serve delicious polish cuisine. Upscale bars and exciting clubs are the centre of Krakow’s vibrant nightlife.
If you want to get away for a day, make sure you see the stunning Wieliczka Salt Mine, built in the 13th century and featuring an entire altar carved out of rock salt! Or breathe some fresh air in Poland’s highest mountains, the Tatras, just a short drive from Kraków.
