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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Stare Miasto, Lost Souls Alley and Bazylika i Klasztor Franciszkanow. Step out of Krakow to go to Oswiecim and see Panstwowe Muzeum Auschwitz-Birkenau, which is approximately 1h 10 min away. The adventure continues: get to know the fascinating history of Wawel Royal Castle, contemplate the long history of Muzeum Krakowa, oddzial Fabryka Emalia Oskara Schindlera, admire the landmark architecture of St. Mary's Basilica, and make a trip to Krakow's Rynek Glowny Central Square.
