Along the banks of Poland’s river Vistula lies one of Europe’s most beautiful cities, Kraków. Rich in history, culture and design, Kraków was founded on the slaying of a dragon by mythical royalty. Today, this city has become an economic, academic and cultural centre of Poland: not only is it the location of Poland’s most prestigious university, which lies among the world’s oldest; its Historic Centre is also one of the world’s first UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Its exciting district of Kazimierz is also one of the best places to explore pre-war Jewish culture in all of Europe.
All this, however, is just the tip of the iceberg! The best way to explore Kraków is to stay in it; and what better way to stay somewhere than in style? Here are 11 crazy cool Airbnbs in Krakow, Poland.
For a chic stay in a historic district, book this stylish designer apartment. Situated along one of Kazimierz’s major streets, this apartment bears a convenient location between this historic district and the Main Square of Kraków’s Old Town. Wake up on the bedroom’s double bed or the home’s sofa bed before heading out for the day. Keep track of your travels using the chalkboard; or, if you’re more of a pen-and-paper kind of person, peg your memos on the board above the couch. Make use of the bedroom’s many cupboards to organise your clothes and other necessities during your stay here!

Yet another fabulous holiday home lies in this loft! Also located in Kazimierz, this spacious home is bright, colourful yet simplistic. Let the morning sun stream in through one of many skylights as you rise and shine on one of three sleeping spaces – the bedroom’s double bed, the couch in the living room, or the home’s other bed (not pictured). Enter the modest kitchen and have a scrumptious meal with your travel companions at the cosy dining table. On a day in or after a long day out, wind down as you lounge in the living room with a good read from the bookshelf.

The Vistula, the longest, largest and most historical river in Poland, flows through Kraków. For an appreciation of the city’s natural features, stay in this apartment, located on the river’s banks! Before heading out for the day, enjoy a cup of coffee and breakfast on the lush, beautiful terrace as you gaze at the Vistula’s sparkling blue waters. After a long day out, why not enjoy dinner and a game of chess on the terrace as well? If it’s cold outside, the library in the lounge is provided for your entertainment. When it’s time for bed, escape to one of two lively, colourful bedrooms or unfold the lounge’s sofa bed for a good night’s rest.

Apartments near the city centre of Kraków offer a different kind of experience as compared with those in other cities. Take for example this apartment – decked out in bright, sunny hues, it’s an idyllic yet invigorating stay!
Wake up every morning to the wide open space of this home, and head out to the living room for a short read before your day out, or some fresh air at the balcony. When the trees outside are in season, you can even pick walnuts from their branches! Prepare breakfast with the ample groceries and appliances in the kitchen before heading out to the sights, most of which are just a stone’s throw from this central home!

If you’ve got business in Kraków, or are travelling in a larger group than most, bunk in this gorgeous attic loft.

After a long day out, choose any bedroom that catches your fancy, be it the comic-filled cosy of the teens’ bedroom, the simplicity of the orange bedroom, or the bookworm’s paradise in the library. Your pets even have a corner to curl up in!

On business in Kraków? Doesn’t mean you should have to miss out on all this city has to offer! Located on the border of Kraków’s Old Town, this simplistic apartment injects a dose of wanderlust into all who stay in it. Wake up every morning in one of two fresh, spacious bedrooms, and get dressed before the grand mirrors in each of them.

Looking for an idyllic vacation to fit a big group of companions? Though this accommodation lies a little out of the way, it’s every bit as historical as the city centre – it’s located just a stone’s throw away from Krakus Mound, said to be the final resting place of Kraków’s mythical founder, the legendary King Krakus. In this home, have a hearty dinner in at the bright, greenery-lined dining area, and have fun with everyone in the equally sunny living room. On a day in, escape outdoors with your pets (yes; your furry friends are welcome here as well!) and play in the lush garden. Afterwards, bathe pretty in pink in the bathroom and bunk in one of four bedrooms for a good night’s sleep.
