Group Travel and City Break Specialists
Welcome to Krakow - a charismatic, cosmopolitan city, with its fashionable cellar bars and hearty restaurants, a university city
steeped in history. Krakow is now outselling Rome and Venice as a tourist destination, there has never been a better time to visit the
city, with Poland being more accessible than ever.
Krakow, the former royal capital on the River Vistula with its plentiful well-preserved architectural monuments is an ideal destination for a relaxing city break. Medieval City centre with its Market Square, surrounded by medieval houses, Gothic Cloth Hall, St. Mary’s Basilica and the Wawel Royal Castle are a 'must to see' for every visitor. A unique experience is a visit to the Wieliczka Salt Mine 13km from Krakow, with its several halls, chambers, chapels and sculptures carved in rock salt.
Krakow with its wide choice of restaurants and lively nightclub scene has something to offer for all age groups, everything from hip-hop to traditional jazz can be heard as you wander round the city shops. Check out the silver and amber jewellery.
When in Krakow pick up a copy of the Karnet a free and comprehensive English language booklet which lists almost every event taking place in the city. Published by the Cultural Information Centre.
