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.
Change things up with a short trip to Panstwowe Muzeum Auschwitz-Birkenau in Oswiecim (about 1 hour away). There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Wawel Royal Castle, hunt for treasures at Sukiennice (Cloth Hall), take a stroll through Kazmierz The Former Jewish District, and steep yourself in history at Wieliczka Salt Mine.

If you are flying in from Malta, the closest major airports are Kraków John Paul II International Airport, Katowice International Airport and Rzeszów-Jasionka Airport. In November, daily temperatures in Krakow can reach 9°C, while at night they dip to 1°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 29th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
