What to see in Krakow?

Krakow is the former capital of Poland and one of its most beautiful cities. What is important, Krakow did not suffer during the Second World War and today you can admire a multitude of monuments here. The most important of them are located in the Old Town, which was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List as one of the first 12 sites worldwide! So what is worth seeing in Krakow? Where should you go during your trip to this city?

Museum lovers will be pleased to know that Krakow is one of the richest cities in Central Europe in terms of museum collections. It is home to almost one hundred museums, and the number is growing every year. Which ones are worth visiting during a short trip to Krakow? The largest and most important of its kind is the National Museum. Its main building is located on Aleje Trzech Wieszczów Street. Other branches are located in Bishop Erazm Ciołek’s palace (medieval art), the Cloth Hall (19th century Polish art), Feliks Jasieński’s Szołayski Tenement House (Young Poland art) and the Czartoryski Museum. In the latter, you can admire, among other things, Leonardo da Vinci’s Lady with an Ermine.

 

The most important monuments – places you can’t miss during your trip to Krakow!

One of the most recognisable landmarks of Krakow is the royal castle on the Wawel Hill. It is a huge two-storey building in Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque styles – the result of numerous renovations and alterations it has undergone over the years. Its characteristic Renaissance arcaded courtyard, imposing entrance gate and medieval towers are its hallmarks. Inside the castle is now a museum – you can visit more than 70 exhibition rooms, most of which are decorated in Renaissance and Baroque style. Highly impressive are the Eagle Room with its magnificent ceiling, the Crown Treasury or the richly decorated Vasa bedroom. When visiting Wawel, it is also worth going to St. Stanislaus’ and St. Wenceslas’ Cathedral. The Wawel Cathedral, where the remains of Polish kings, the most important artists and national heroes are interred, is also very impressive.

Many of the most important city monuments are located in the Old Town. Almost all tours of Krakow go there sooner or later. While in the city, it is necessary to visit the Main Market Square, where one of the symbols of Krakow rises: the famous Cloth Hall. Nearby, there is also the historic Roman Catholic St. Mary’s Church with its characteristic asymmetrical facade. Its interior is breath-taking – it is here that you can admire, among other things, the elaborate altar created in the 15th century by Wit Stwosz. When strolling through the Old Town, it is also worth going to the Florian Gate. This medieval building is a remnant of the former city walls. Besides the Old Town visit also the former Jewish quarter of Krakow – Kazimierz with its 7 preserved pre-war synagogues. It is truly fascinating and enchanting place.

When visiting Krakow, one should not forget about one of the most horrific and tragic places on the European continent – the former Nazi camp Auschwitz-Birkenau located only 60 kilometres from Krakow.

Review of Free Walkative - Tours Gdansk
Excellent overview of Gdansk history

Oddly enough, the main town was the last in the various walking tours I have done with Walkative over two trips to Gdansk. There is very little overlap and this one really gives you a solid grounding in the history dating back four or five centuries in some cases. The guide (Macin I think - sorry!) did a wonderful job retelling some of the gore and much of the wonder that’s as old Gdansk. These guides do an amazing job!

Review of Free Walkative! - Tours Wroclaw
World War 2 & Jewish Wroclaw Walking Tour

We spent a pleasant two hours walking around Wroclaw, visiting significant historical sites to do with the Jewish community and the Second World War. Our guide Lukasz was very knowledgeable and informative and also very friendly. We learnt a lot in the time we spent with him on the tour and saw parts of the city that we wouldn’t have probably come across wandering on our own. I’d highly recommend this tour and would give Lukasz five stars for his knowledge and delivery of the subject matter! Thanks
