Welcome to Krakow

Between 730 and 750 AD, Poland was ruled by a hero, a mighty man and a dragon slayer. So says the legend of the Krakow dragon, slain by the Polish Prince Kracus after whom the city is named. This is just one of many magical tales set in this most enchanting of cities. It is a place of vast and numerous museums, towering yet ancient buildings and the largest market square in Europe. This lies side by side with the modern attractions of the city such as its vibrant nightlife supporting restaurants, bars and clubs in their hundreds. Here are a few of the things you won’t want to miss when you use JiveHippo.travel to book your Krakow holiday. 

Things to Do / Must-See

Wawel Castle

The home of the legendary dragon and its slayer, Wawel Castle is steeped in mystery and history. The current structure was built in the 16th Century, but the site had been of great significance for many years before that. These days, it is possible to look around the spectacularly well preserved buildings and view the exhibits in its museum. 

Tour the historic centre

This is one of few cities where it would be impossible to pinpoint the must-see historic buildings and areas of town, since the whole place is of such great historic and architectural significance. It is for this reason that a historical tour of the whole city is recommended. This will be a whistle-stop tour, allowing you to identify the places where you want to spend a bit more time. 

Main market square

This is where it’s all happening. The historic buildings surrounding the square contain restaurants, bars and cafes that draw swarms of people to this natural focal point of the city. Sit outside drinking coffee and watching the world go by, soaking up the atmosphere of this fabulous city. 

Museums 

From the Market Square museum to the Polish Aviation museum, the city is so proud of its history that every era and event seems to have a museum dedicated to it. If you are a history lover, this is an amazing place to visit to indulge in your hobby. 

Planty Park 

It is normal for cities to have a stretch of greenery somewhere in their midst, but Krakow, as usual, likes to do things a little differently. Planty park is a ring of green that surrounds the entire city on its outskirts. During your walk, you can take in the main sights, landmarks and tourist attractions and yet feel that you have somehow escaped the hustle and bustle of the city centre.
