What is worth seeing in Krakow?

Krakow, with its history and hidden treasures, attracted more than 8 million visitors in 2022. As the second largest city in Poland, it offers a wealth of attractions, picturesque Old Towns and an unforgettable atmosphere.

In addition to its well-known monuments, Krakow also hides many smaller museums and culinary gems that make it worth spending more than just one day here.

In the center of Krakow: the Main Square and its treasures

On the UNESCO list since 1978, Krakow’s Market Square with St. Mary’s Basilica is a must-see on any visit. Its medieval Cloth Halls, full of jewelry and souvenir stalls, and the Market Square basement offer deep insights into the city’s history. The City Hall Tower and the Krzysztofory Palace are also not to be missed.

Wawel Castle: A Royal Past

Wawel Castle, the former residence of kings, is worth visiting for its permanent and temporary exhibitions, as well as the legendary grotto of the Wawel Dragon. On Wawel Hill there is the royal castle, which has been rebuilt many times, and the cathedral – the place of coronation o burial of the kings of Poland

Kazimierz: A district full of life

Kazimierz, with its rich Jewish history, trendy pubs and bars, is a place that bustles with life both day and night. Synagogues, the Church on the Rock or the Ethnographic Museum are worth a visit.

Foothills: History and Nature

In the center of Podgórze – the Podgórze market – is the neo-Gothic church dedicated to St. Peter. St. Joseph’s. Above it rises Bednarskiego Street, and overlooking the area is the Mound of Krak- one of the oldest monuments of Krakow. It offers a beautiful panorama of Cracow.
