Krakow Holiday Packages

Named in honor of a mythical ruler who built the city above a dragon's lair, Krakow has no shortage of history. Among the most beautiful (and underrated) European cities, its impressive architecture and friendly atmosphere is sure to wow any traveller. With a range of Krakow packages available, it's never been easier to get there.

Things to Do in Krakow

During a trip to this European hotspot of history, visitors will find a rich collection of art and architecture. To begin your trip, get some air on Royal Way, from St. Florian's Gate to the Wawel castle, admiring the various historical sites along the way. Don't worry if all the walking wears you out; there are plenty of horse carriages around the Rynek Glowny neighbourhood for a more relaxed travel experience. If you prefer four wheels to four legs, book one of Wotif’s Krakow car hire deals to explore the city conveniently.

The National Museum in Krakow is also a worthy stop for art and history lovers alike. Beginning in 1879, Poland established departments throughout the country that included libraries, museums and conservation workshops to preserve and showcase Polish art and artifacts dating as far back as the Middle Ages. Your getaway will make perfect “cents” with a visit to the Numismatic Room, which includes some unique coins and medals.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

Shopping on your Krakow holiday should start in Old Town, which offers not only impressive architecture, but excellent art and antique stores as well. The Kazimierz neighbourhood is also an ideal destination; it has both large department stores and small, local boutiques for handmade wares. The city is also famous for producing beautiful amber jewellery, which can be found in abundance within the Stare Miasto neighbourhood.

You'll probably have worked up an appetite after all that shopping; luckily, there are plenty of local eateries, ranging from low-end basic canteens to posh places around the Main Square. Immerse yourself (not literally) in traditional Polish grub such as pierogi (filled dumplings) and barszcz (beet root-based soup).

Now that you’ve got plenty of grub in the tummy, it's time for a drink! Good news: Krakow holidays have plenty of strong liquor. There are hundreds of bars and pubs in Old Town, giving you the perfect opportunity to try traditional beverages such as tatanka, which is made from a special type of vodka mixed with apple juice. If vodka isn't your thing, you can also enjoy a tasty Polish beer on tap, or relax at one of the cosy cafes that line the streets of Stare Miasto.
