Exploring Krakow

Krakow is one of the oldest cities in the whole of Poland and is actually the capital of the area known at Little Poland. The oldest settlements date back to pre-historic times. With many monuments that survived the Second World War, Krakow is brimming with history. It’s also one of the areas where Jews lived in ghettos and concentration camps during WWII. Today you can learn more about the events of the past, and appreciate the plight of a city that has risen to become a cultural gem in the patchwork of Europe.

Sightseeing in Krakow

- Wawel Castle


The Castle, located in The Old Town has become a symbol of national identity for both Krakow and Poland and is known as its center piece attraction. The main part of the Renaissance palace dates back to the 15th century and some of it was built in the 11th century. After going through different architectural and stylistic periods from Renaissance to Gothic and suffering a fire, the castle has now been preserved. Restoration work began on the castle after World War I and it is now a museum made up of five sections.


- Auschwitz


Preserved as a reminder of the persecution of the Jewish people during World War II are the prison camps of Auschwitz and Birkeanau. Also claiming World Heritage Site status, some of the prison blocks are now museums dedicated to the education, teaching and sharing of what happened to those forced to live here. They also serve as a memorial. Situated 60 kilometers outside of the city, this harrowing place is well worth visiting to help understand the pain the Nazi regime inflicted.


Transportation in Krakow

If based on Old Town, then your only bet is to walk around. Most of the area is restricted to private cars so walking is actually the only option. You can also get around by tram or bus (try to avoid rush hour as it tends to get pretty packed). Taxis are also relatively cheap and dependable so that is another option. Biking is also becoming increasingly popular and there are now bike lanes scattered around town.
