Walk around Kazimierz, the former Jewish area. Visit the Remuh Synagogue, the Old Jewish Cemetery, and if you want to learn more about th city’s history, the Galicia Jewish Museum is a great visit.

Visit the main market square - a UNESCO world heritage site, and the largest medevial square in Europe. Treat yourself renting a horse and carriage, or simply walk around and enjoy a coffee.

Visit the salt mines - also a UNESCO world heritage site, and the oldest operating salt mine in the world. Take in the intricate art, the Chapel of St Kings (an underground church made fully of salt) and more.

To take in some history and pay tribute to the Holocaust, visit the Auschwitz-Birkenau museum. It is an educational (and emotional) experience to see the camp and learn more about the operation.

Rynek Underground Museum

Details

Directly below the main square is an underground museum, revealing artifacts of Kraków’s past. The entrance is outside the Cloth Hall, with limited entry so make sure to reserve a time slot online.

St. Mary's Basilica

Details

Opposite the Cloth Hall in the main square, the main attraction is the Basilica. The queues are long, so make sure to go early, but it is definitely worth it to see the altar and enjoy the view from the towers.

Oskar Schindler's Enamel Factory

Another must-see museum is the Schindler’s Factory. You may know the story from the Stephen Spielberg film, and this museum tells you more about his life during the Second World War.

Hi! I’m a keen traveller based in London who likes to get away for long weekends (on a budget). Travelling to me is about more than just ticking off famous landmarks (as much as I enjoy that too); it’s about discovering those lesser-know restaurants, cozy cafes and vibrant hangouts that allow me to learn the local culture. Hanging out with locals and getting a glimpse of their lives is the most authentic travel. I’m adventurous, which means I often choose to walk rather than relying on transport. Not only is it a great way to save some money, but it’s how I find myself stumbling across the tucked-away places. If this sounds like your travel style - join me on my journey as I share my experiences, tips and the joy of wandering off the beaten path!
