Top 5 things to do in Krakow

Top 5 things to do in Krakow

Romantic vistas for couples holidays, family-friendly attractions and dynamic nightlife districts await on Krakow city breaks.

  • The medieval Market Square is the heart and soul of the UNESCO-listed Krakow Old Town. Plan to return time and again, with museums, souvenir shops, historic buildings and pubs to discover. Or, just settle in at a restaurant and people-watch for hours.
  • To thoroughly explore the city, stroll along the Vistula Boulevards. Following the longest river in Poland, the charming pathways lead to attractions including the Bernatek Footbridge. It’s otherwise known as the Lovers’ Bridge, so don’t forget a padlock to hang for your sweetheart.
  • The artificial Kosciuszko Mound was built to honour Polish military hero, Tadeusz Kosciuszko. Hike up 34 metres and get your camera ready for panoramic city views.
  • History and modern living collide with an energetic vibe on Florianska Street. Part of the Royal Route, the famous stretch is lined with Renaissance facades, craft beer bars, shops and historic cafes.
  • Only around an hour from the city centre, Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum offers a moving experience of the Holocaust.

Get set for gasp-worthy moments when you stumble upon architectural marvels on holidays to Krakow.

  • The massive complex of Wawel Castle dominates the Krakow city skyline. Once the domain of Polish kings and queens, it features majestic Gothic belfries, imposing fortifications and a museum with five sections.
  • Seven spiked turrets top the circular Krakow Barbican, a structure straight from a fantasy that was built in 1498. Now, the formidable gatehouse hosts jousting tournaments, feasts and events for tourists.
  • Two striking towers of different heights characterise St Mary’s Basilica. Take a peek inside to see beautiful stained-glass windows, wall paintings and the incredible altarpiece.
  • Marking the start of the Royal Route, St Florian’s Gate is one of the city’s originals. It was built in the 14 century as part of Krakow’s fortifications.
  • Saints Peter and Paul Church was the first baroque building in Krakow. Statues of the 12 disciples line the fence and it’s topped by a skylit dome.
