The Carpathian/Polish Mountains region
Krakow is a beautiful and fascinating city, steeped in history and tradition. The friendly inhabitants, agreeable climate of hot Summers’, snowy Winters’ and temperate Spring and Autumn seasons, plus the city's relative obscurity make it a perfect destination for the discerning traveller.
The city centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, reflecting its wealth of historic buildings and monuments:
'It’s stunning, well-preserved collection of medieval and Renaissance architecture is unrivalled, from the Old Town with its soaring Gothic churches, to the splendid Wawel castle and Cathedral, and the former Jewish district of Kazimierz with its poignant, silent synagogues’ (‘The Lonely Planet guide to Poland’).
There are many museums, art galleries, churches, interesting shops and market places to wander through and look around. The city can also be enjoyed from a horse-drawn carriage or a boat on the river.
Eating and drinking in the vast array of bars, cafes and restaurants is another high point of a trip to Krakow. There is so much choice, from the very basic but authentically Polish ‘Milk bars’ to sophisticated five-star restaurants, cellar bars to pavement cafes and the deeply traditional to the hyper modern. The quality of food and service is generally outstanding as is the great value for money.
All inclusive guided tours to the Auschwitz-Birkenau deathcamps at Oswiecim can be organised easily through Tourist Information offices and take approximately half a day; a minibus collects you and drops you back to your accommodation. Another popular and interesting half-day trip is to the Wieliczka Salt Mine, the highlight of which is the Chapel of the Blessed Kings in which everything from the chandaliers to the altar is made from salt. Again, package tours including transport, entrance fee and guide are readily available.
Krakow Christmas Market in the Main Square from early December to early January
International Festival of Jewish Culture - June/July - klezmer concerts, films, exhibitions, book launches, lectures and Jewish cuisine
