A culture of creativity
Krakow is a university town which sparks creativity and a welcoming start up culture as well as a happening nightlife. When the weather is warm it is hard to find a better atmosphere in Europe than the evenings in the market square and the hip Kazimierz district should also not be missed. Krakow is full of green areas highlighted by paths along the river ideal for a jog or a cycle.
Polish classics and much more
Expect hearty and tasty local food at wallet-friendly prices, you might be familiar with Polish classics such as kielbasa and pierogies. A Krakow favorite you don’t want to miss is zapiekanka.

Two important UNESCO sites are close by. A visit to Auschwitz is a moving experience and the Wieliczka Salt Mine is an impressive feat of devotion by salt miners who carved out chapels and churches underground. Zakopane in the Polish Tatras is perfect if you want to get some fresh mountain air. A winter sports paradise that transforms into a hiker’s heaven in summer.
Poland has so much to offer beyond Krakow that there may be no reason to leave the country. The capital Warsaw, or Krakow’s smaller brother, the student city of Wroclaw are only a short drive or train ride away.
