One of Poland's oldest cities, Krakow sits at the foot of the Carpathian Mountains, its historical town center nestled on the left bank of the Vistula River.
Wawel Cathedral and Krakow's Rynek Glowny Central Square are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Your inner history buff will appreciate Wawel Royal Castle and New Jewish Cemetery. Take a break from Krakow with a short trip to Panstwowe Muzeum Auschwitz-Birkenau in Oswiecim, about 1h 30 min away. There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of Wieliczka Salt Mine, take a stroll through Stare Miasto, stroll the grounds of Rakowicki Cemetery, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Mary's Basilica.

If you are flying in from Portugal, the closest major airports are Kraków John Paul II International Airport, Katowice International Airport and Rzeszów-Jasionka Airport. In July, daytime highs in Krakow are 30°C, while nighttime lows are 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
