Krakow is the second largest city in Poland and one of its most important economic and commercial hubs. With a rich and diverse history stretching back thousands of years, Krakow today has a stunning cityscape, with world class museums, galleries and performing arts, alongside great bars and cuisine.
The city is serviced by Krakow Airport, also known as John Paul II International Airport. It is easy to get from the airport to the nearby city, with a choice of trains, buses or taxis. It is possible to navigate Krakow on foot and there are some relaxing walking routes that stretch around the old city from Florian's Gate to Wawel castle, or along the river next to the castle. Renting a bike is another great way to see the city. Visiting in autumn or spring is perfect, as the city is quieter and not too cold. The time zone is GMT+2.
Exploring the beautiful old town is the best way to start Krakow holidays. Head to Rynek Główny, the city's main marketplace. A medieval square in the heart of the old town, Rynek Główny is the largest medieval marketplace in the world and is surrounded by historic churches, restaurants and bars. At the Czartoryski Museum, which is part of the National Museum, you'll find Polish masterpieces, alongside famous international art by da Vinci and Rembrandt. To see some of Krakow's history visit the Barbican, built in the 15th century to defend the city from the Ottomans it was the biggest defensive building in Europe at the time. The Kazimierz district is the location of the Remuh Synagogue which was built in 1557 and has an intense Gothic atmosphere. The Communist era architecture of the Nowa Huta district provides insight into the city's more recent past. Whatever you do in this stunning city, Krakow holidays promise to be an unforgettable adventure.
