Where to go Europe -> Poland -> Krakow - Holidays?

Krakow, a historic and vibrant city in Poland, is a treasure trove of holiday highlights. The city's Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is a must-visit, with its stunning medieval architecture and charming cobblestone streets. The centerpiece is the Rynek Glówny, one of Europe's largest town squares, surrounded by colorful townhouses and the iconic St. Mary's Basilica. Here, you can savor traditional Polish cuisine at cozy restaurants or shop for souvenirs at the bustling Cloth Hall.

Krakow is also a gateway to historical and cultural experiences. A visit to Wawel Castle, perched on a hill above the Vistula River, allows you to explore the rich history of Polish royalty. Nearby, the Wawel Cathedral houses magnificent tombs and artifacts. The city's Jewish heritage comes to life in the Kazimierz district, where you can explore synagogues and visit the poignant Schindler's Factory Museum.

For a poignant and educational excursion, Auschwitz-Birkenau, located just outside Krakow, is a sobering reminder of the Holocaust and a place to pay respects to the victims. Alternatively, you can head to the Wieliczka Salt Mine, a marvel of engineering and artistry, with underground chambers and chapels carved entirely from salt. Krakow's vibrant cultural scene and rich history ensure that your holiday will be filled with unforgettable experiences.
