Lesser Poland is a gorgeous, historic swathe of southern Poland. Its capital is Krakow, so beautiful and immaculately preserved that it was one of the first cities ever to be inscribed on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites. Krakow’s enchanting medieval heart and Jewish quarter are stuffed with fantastic places to eat, drink and shop, and it has become one of Poland’s most popular destinations for a city break. Lesser Poland is also home to a wide range of attractions such as the fascinating Wieliczka salt mines, another UNESCO World Heritage Site, the sobering and moving Auschwitz-Birkenau memorial, and the gorgeous wilderness of the Ocjow National Park.

Krakow, the capital of Lesser Poland, is a spectacular and well-preserved historic city stuffed with cultural attractions, plus a fabulous choice of shops, bars, restaurants and beer halls. Its cobbled streets wind around a stunning medieval market square (Rynek Główny), one of the largest in Europe, which is ringed with handsome medieval and Renaissance monuments including St Mary’s Basilica and the Cloth Hall. You can escape the crowds in the nature reserves and parks that surround the city, or head to the Tatra Mountains for some hiking and biking. Other top attractions in Lesser Poland include the Wieliczka salt mines, one of the most visited sites in the country, which date back to the 13th century. You could also make a pilgrimage to the harrowing memorial at the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, or escape the forests and hills of the Ocjow National Park.

Krakow is the perfect city break destination. One of the oldest and best preserved cities in Poland, its immaculate medieval centre is packed with cultural attractions, as well as oodles of inviting shops, bars, restaurants and cafés. Visit the splendid castle on Wawel Hill, admire the gorgeous Market Square – one of the largest medieval squares in Europe – and explore the enchanting lanes and alleys of Kazimierz, the old Jewish Quarter. The nightlife is fantastic, whether you just want to soak up the sun in a beer garden or fancy hitting one of the sleek new nightclubs. And, if you want to get away from the crowds, you can head to the beach at the nearby Krypisnów Lagoon to soak up some rays or have a dip.
