1°C Dec

A historic city bursting with amazing stories

Looking for an affordable weekend holiday in Eastern Europe? Book a flight to Krakow and enjoy this lively student city that is bursting with historic architecture. Let your imagination run wild with the myths about heroes and dragons, and marvel at the ancient buildings which remained intact despite the Second World War. At night, enjoy a tankard of Polish beer in one of the many cafes!

View from the royal hill

The Market Square is the city’s beating heart and is at the foot of Wawel Hill. Admire the impressive St. Mary's Basilica and listen to the hourly bugle call. Be seduced by the city’s Cloth Hall and buy souvenirs such as sheep’s wool clothing and beautiful ornaments. To get a great view, climb up the hill. Did you know that members of the royal family used to be crowned and buried here? The castle and cathedral are open to visitors. Not only is Krakow the ideal destination for weekend holidays, it’s also the perfect starting point for a longer vacation in Poland. Treat yourself: book a flight to Krakow now!

Quiet contemplation in Auschwitz

You can also visit the former Jewish quarter of Krakow, Kazimierz. Before the Second World War, it was home to Poland’s largest communities of Jews. The neighbourhood has been spruced up since “Schindler’s List” was filmed here and it’s now a popular spot for a snack or a drink. Although heavy and imposing, a visit to the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp is an equally essential part of any stay in Krakow, and only 60 kilometres away. The memorial will leave behind a deep impression.
