Krakow City Breaks

A hearty and historical beauty

Krakow might be Poland’s second largest city, but in terms of culture, it's very much the capital. There’s evidence that the city has been around since 20,000 BC, and there’s a delightful local myth that the city was built on the site where a dragon was slain. As you'll discover, there's a lot to capture the imagination on a holiday to Krakow City. As the political capital of Poland for 500 years, you can expect to see a city filled to the brim with castles, cobbled alleys and a unique mixture of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture. These buildings miraculously survived World War II - a fact that makes them not just unique to Poland, but to Europe. Whether it’s museum hunting and castle touring you’re looking for, or just some fun and culture, we think you’ll love Krakow as much as we do.

Your Krakow City questions, answered

Despite cold winters and hot summers, Krakow is a year-round destination. Whether marked with snow or by sun glinting through steeples, it's quite a sight.
With a number of popular nightclubs and all-night bars, the squares of the Old Town are where the city's nightlife begins.
You can't leave without trying traditional bwarzanek braided bread; zurek creamy sour soup; barszcz savoury beetroot soup; and of course, famous pierogi Polish dumplings.
