Feel the vibe of Krakow!

Krakow began as a settlement in the stone age nearly 12 centuries ago. Its history includes being the seat of the kingdom for about 800 years, the epicentre of culture, education, and trade routes. It started with Kazimierz the Great who attained the throne during turbulent times in 1333. As king, he reversed the economic downturn, led victorious war campaigns, and nearly doubled the land area of the kingdom. Kazimierz the Great began construction of, the modern-day, Jagiellonian University and the Wawel Castle where your tour begins.

You will visit the castle located on Wawel Hill and if you are lucky, you may catch a glimpse of the local dragon. You will see the tombs of almost all of the Polish kings, the cathedral, the castle, and more. Following your tour of Wawel Hill, you will be led to the Old Town of Krakow.

In the beautiful main square, lined with excellent cafes, pubs, and restaurants, you will first see Sukiennice (cloth hall). Here you would have found the centre of international trade in the 15th century - stalls were once filled with numerous exotic spices, silk, and other things that came via the Silk Road. Today, it is still an international market, but now it sells Polish exports, such as Krakow’s best textiles, salt, and amber, among others. Afterwards, you will see the splendour of St. Mary’s Basilica and you may even hear about a tale or two of war and jealousy that may leave you shocked. Take in the view of St. Florian’s Gate and the nearby Barbican, as well as the art deco and stained glass at the Franciscan Church.

The late Pope John Paul II is a key figure for Catholics, Poles, and many others around the world. You will see many significant places to the late Pope while he was still Bishop of Krakow.

Krakow is a magical place to visit. Each and every traveler will find something for themselves in this beautiful, medieval town.
