Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
In a quiet district on the outskirts of Cracow there is a holiday home Villa Rajsko. Marvellously convenient with a distant view of the centuries-old city. A luxury mansion with all the comforts.
It is only 30 minutes away from the international airport and near the new motorway with a good connection to Berlin.
In one hour you can reach the mountains offering a wide range of walking trails in a still unaffected nature all around the city of Zakopane, which in winter becomes an outstanding skiing area. You can also visit the memorial Camp Auschwitz. Very impressing. The saltmines of Wieliczka are less than 10 minutes by car from Villa Rajsko

The Carpathian/Polish Mountains region
A city wrapped in legend, where time flows differently, and where every moment becomes a moment of history. For centuries Krakow was the capital of Poland, the seat of kings, drawing great scholars and artists from the whole world. It is their talents and imagination we must thank for the city's rich legacy of unique historical relics, which reflect the most important trends in European culture.
The renaissance Royal Castle at Wawel, the gothic St Mary's Basilica, the historical trade pavilions of the Cloth Hall, the former separate Jewish city of Kazimierz, and even the Nowa Huta district, absorbed by Krakow together with its socialist-realist, industrial architecture, are all places which make a visit to Krakow extremely worthwhile.
Although the city no longer plays such an important administrative role, for many people, thanks to its rich history, Krakow nevertheless represents a synthesis of all things Polish, connecting tradition with modernity. In the special atmosphere of the beautiful and mysterious streets of the Old Town and Kazimierz you will find everything you need to allow you to escape from everyday life. Galleries full of exhibitions, cafes, pubs and restaurants: all of this is an integral part of any visit to Krakow. And all this is merely a modest part of what we can offer travellers seeking exciting destinations on the world map.
Kanonicza, the street usually taken to access the famous Wawel Hill, is short and fairly narrow. Yet it is one of the most important and ancient streets of the city; a street whose look has hardly changed over the centuries - authentic and very much alive. Moreover, Kanonicza provides an example of favourable changes that have continued in Krakow in recent years: the complex restoration of city's heritage and preservation projects which unveil the city's true beauty layer by layer.
The Main Square
The Main Square is a large area for people to meet during summer festivals, concerts, fairs, presentations, and Poland's largest New Year's Party. Citizens of Krakow frequently meet "pod Adasiem", that is at the foot of the Monument to Adam Mickiewicz, the poet. A longer stay is encouraged by the ring of restaurant and café gardens surrounding the square, which can easily provide a place to rest for several thousand people. Some of them operate from early in the morning into the small hours in the night, nearly all year round, with but a short break during the fiercest frosts. In winter, patrons move to the cellars so characteristic of the centre of Krakow. In these cellars you will often find live music. Krakow has well deserved the title of the capital city
