11 Crazy Cool Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Kraków, Poland - Updated 2021

airbnb krakow

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.

Chalkboard chic: Designer apartment in Kazimierz (from USD 26)

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!

Prismatic posh: Attic loft in Kazimierz

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.
