Hideaway Castles and Pretty Parkland

On your Krakow city break you can indulge in one of the most beautiful destinations in Poland. Holidaymakers should immerse themselves in the host of timeless and exciting attractions. Some of the city’s most splendid buildings include the striking Wawel Castle, which dates back to the 16th century, and St Mary’s Church, which found life around 1220. One of the best preserved examples of Gothic architecture can be found in the Collegium Maius University building, while Renaissance works of art can be viewed in Cloth Hall.

Culture vultures will be well catered for during their Krakow city breaks, and they will revel in the array of engaging museums on offer. The National Museum showcases a huge array of work spanning a number of centuries and artistic movements, while the Krakow Historical Museum and the Archaeological Museum give you the chance to trace the footsteps of the city’s past.

Once you've experienced the beautiful architecture and the intriguing history of the city, it’ll be time to enjoy some hearty local cuisine or the tempting spirits favoured by the locals. After dinner, you can choose to join in with the lively nightlife, experience the cafe culture in the popular Market Square, or for a spot of artistic culture, spend an evening at one of the renowned theatres like the Slowacki, where many acclaimed companies perform.
