Posted May 19, 2017

Kraków lays claim to being one of the oldest city in Poland, and is one of the leading centres of Polish academic, cultural, and artistic life. Famous for its preserved medieval core, the Kraków Old Town, and the Jewish quarter, there are numerous things to do and attractions to visit while in Kraków.

If you are coming to Kraków, here’s your one-stop guide to all the things you just have to do in Kraków:

Activities in the day

Enjoy the main square that holds daily markets, scenic river walks and the multiple cathedrals! Read on for some great recommendations!

1. Wawel Castle

Wawel Castle is a very popular attraction due to the unique architecture and royal history. It is situated on a hilltop and overlooks a beautiful river, giving you a wonderful view. The beautiful Wawel Castle was build in 14th century during the reign of Casimir III and was a home to many Polish kings in the times before the capital of Poland was moved from Kraków to Warsaw. The architectural style of the castle is incredibly gothic as well as slightly Romanesque.

The castle is a home of one of the most popular Polish legends about the Wawel dragon. The statue of the dragon located just outside the castle on the boulevard by the Vistula River can breathe fire on demand and if you want to an in depth study of the dragon’s history, you can always join a guided tour and learn more about this colorful legend.

Today it is used as an art gallery and a tourist attraction. It is free to wander around the castle and enjoy the view. However, you will need to pay a small amount to view the art exhibitions.

Address: Wawel 5, 31-001 Kraków, Poland

Opening Hours: 6 am to 6 pm

Duration: around 3 hours required.

2. Main Square

The Main Square is always buzzing during the summer months. It is home to a very quirky market that offers everything from traditional food to authentic homemade jewellery. There are often street performers playing traditional music and horses drawn carriages occupying the streets. During the evening, more food stalls arise to offer traditional meals to the hungry tourists. Speciality Polish dishes include perogi (polish dumplings), goulash (meat stew) and Borcht (beetroot soup). As Poland is a relatively cheap country, you can easily purchase a full meal for 3 USD.

Do take the chance to go for a Horse-drawn carriage ride there as well. Horse carriages are usually located in the Main Square and that is also where you will start your journey around the inner city of Kraków. Not only will this attraction make you feel like you are a part of the royal family, but it is also probably the best way to hear more about the city.

Usually, the guided tour is not included in the ride, but if you kindly ask to hear more about the destinations you will pass on your way around the city, they will be more than happy to tell you the story of their town. If you want to just relax — that is perfectly fine, too! Just sit back, relax, and enjoy the sun and the clicking of horses’ hoofs on the concrete.

Price: around 100 PLN / 25 USD

3. St. Mary's Basilica

Adjacent to the market, you will find St. Mary’s Basilica, the most famous church in Kraków. It was built in the 14th century and stands at 80m tall! The architecture is gothic and cathedral style.

The basilica holds two great attractions — Wita Stworz’s altar and a trumpet player in the tower playing “hejnal.” Starting with the altar from the 15th century, carved by a Polish artist Wita Stworz is one of the most beautiful pieces of sacred art in all of Poland. Accompanied by the beautiful, marble interior of the basilica, it creates an unforgettable experience.

Another part is the “hejnal,” which is played at noon and chosen full-hours of the day. It cuts off in the middle as a tribute to the trumpet player killed by an arrow to his throat during the invasion of Tatars, where he played “hejnal” to warn citizens about the danger.

4. The Jewish Quarter

Kraków is famous for the Jewish quarter, a district located just south of the old town. For over 500 years, this area was the centre of Jewish life, before it was systematically destroyed during World War 2. It is considered as Krakow’s most exciting district due to the bustling, bohemian atmosphere, historical sites, art galleries and quirky cafes.

This area is a massive tourist attraction and is even used as a pilgrimage site for Jews. Every summer, there is a huge festival here in the quarter to celebrate the Jewish culture and educate guests and residents about the city’s prewar history. The Jewish quarter is also the best for nightlife in Kraków!

5. Vistula River boat trip

Another relaxed attraction that cannot be missed in Kraków is the boat trip around the city on the Vistula River. Although only enjoyed in the summer, it is one of the best ways to see parts of the city that would not be otherwise accessible.

There are many companies operating the boat trips and they all offer different experiences. Would you like a guided tour? Sure thing! A quiet and romantic sail along the river? You got it! Getting from point A to B? Of course! The possibilities are endless and the sky, or should I say water, is the limit!

6. Schindler’s Museum (Oskar Schindler's Enamel Factory)

If you enjoy learning about WW2, I would suggest visiting Schindler’s museum. Here, you will find an innovative exhibition that tells the moving story of the city from 1939 to 1945. The exhibition covers the war, everyday life under the Occupation, the fate of the Jews and the city’s underground resistance through photos, radio and film recordings and artefacts. It will cost you 19 PLN (5 USD) for a day pass. This museum is considered world class!

Poland has a well-developed and deeply-rooted drinking culture; therefore, it is essential to go out drinking with your newly-acquainted Polish friend, because as the Poles say, you do not know a person before you drink with them. I, therefore, deeply encourage you to try out this amazing beverage culture while you are there and remember not to attempt to out-drink a Pole — drink responsibly!

For the history lovers: Kraków's magnificent culture

If you are into seeing genuine Polish medieval architecture, come to Krakow instead of Warsaw. Most parts of Warsaw, Poland’s capital city, were destroyed during the second World War. Kraków’s is so small that you can explore almost all the main spots on foot. The most popular attractions are located in the historic centre including the Old Town and the Kazimierz .

Besides Wawel Castle, St. Mary’s Basilica, and Schindler’s Museum, here are the places that are steeped in history.

11. The Royal Way

Source: Huong Nguyen

One of the ultimate routes to explore Kraków is the Royal Way - a ceremonial route that kings and other celebrities paraded through Kraków when it was the capital of Poland. The Royal Way starts at St. Florian’s Gate, goes down Florianska street, across the Rynek Glowny Central Square, and down Grodzka to the Wawel Castle. The Wawel Castle was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage in 1978. Kraków’s busiest areas are Florianska Street and the Rynek Glowny Square - Europe’s largest medieval city plaza with the Renaissance Cloth Hall in the middle and the Town Hall Tower nearby.

12. Kraków Old Town

Although the Royal Way already covers the major attractions of Krakow, there is so much more to see of the historic centre. The Old Town is the home to various squares, palaces, churches, monasteries, and museums. Krakow medieval town is surrounded by Planty Park, which offers ideal paths for locals to jog, have a picnic or simply go for a nice walk. You can also roam around the Old Town’s main squares driven in a horse cab, a carriage or an electric cart of a cycle rickshaw. Some of the main squares to check out are the Rynek Glowny (Main Marketplace), the Maly Rynek (Little Marketplace) and the Plac Mariacki (Mary’s Square).

13. Night Walking Tour

Every night starting from St. Mary’s Church at 7 PM, you can join a free walking tour around the dark and mysterious Kraków. This 1.5 hour exotic tour focuses on medieval methods of punishment, ghosts of unhappy lovers and a scary dragon.

The local travel professionals also offer many other tours for you to discover Kraków such as the daily Old Town Tour and the Food Tour.

Experience Authentic Polish Cuisine: Kraków's Bounty

“Food to a large extent is what holds a society together, and eating is closely linked to deep spiritual experiences.” Peter Farb

Polish cuisine - often forgotten and underrated, is one of the best ones to find in the Eastern part of Europe. The land of pierogi and sour cabbage will surprise you with the diversity and flavor fullness it provides. If you ever find yourself in Krakow - Poland’s former capital and the most beautiful old city in the whole country, you might want to eat something. Here is a list of Kraków’s best Polish cuisine restaurants for every taste and budget.

14. Pod Baranem

Moving onto something sweet, Czarodziej Bakery will amaze you with its sweet creations. Poland is known for many typical confectioneries such as chrusty - deep-fried, crumbly, thinly sliced dough, usually served on a fat Thursday, before lent or Wuzetka - a layered chocolate cake with a light, creamy filling with its signature WZ on top.

Here, you can’t only try the mentioned above, but much more as well. One of the local delicacies that is especially tied to Krakow is Kremowka. Kremowka in a flaky-crust cake with a thick layer of fluffy cream in between. The significance of this dessert goes way beyond its heavenly flavor. One of the most important figures to Krakow’s history is the former pope John Paul II, who was not only a national pride at the time, but also grew up around Krakow. The Kremowka dessert was his openly proclaimed, favorite cake, which has ever since been tied to Krakow and is now known for among Poles.

Whether you care about the historically loaded Kremowka, or crusty chrusty, Czarodziej Bakery is the best place for you to venture into the world of Polish sweets, 100% vegetarian, of course.
