Why go to Krakow

Poland’s toy-box second city has long charmed crowds away from its capital, but beyond its beautiful buildings lies a haunting history, one that makes a holiday to Krakow as enthralling as it is exciting.

Stare Miasto (Old Town) is Krakow’s holidaymaker hub. Here, fairytale streets are lined with pastel-coloured buildings and a huge medieval market square, fringed with terrace cafés, invites visitors to stay a while.

When you’ve downed your coffee and are ready to explore, sightseeing opportunities abound in this pretty city. Enter the old town through its 14th-century St Florian’s Gate and shop along the bustling adjoining street, then climb the 239 steps of the Bugle Tower of St Mary’s Basilica for views over the Main Square. Wawel Castle, one of the most visited attractions in Krakow, is also just a hop away from the centre.
