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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at HistoryLand and Lost Souls Alley. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Krakow's Rynek Glowny Central Square and Wawel Royal Castle. Change things up with these side-trips from Krakow: Czestochowa (Obraz Czarnej Madonny & Jasna Gora) and Panstwowe Muzeum Auschwitz-Birkenau (in Oswiecim). There's still lots to do: surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, appreciate the extensive heritage of Planty Park, take in the spiritual surroundings of Wawel Cathedral, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Bazylika i Klasztor Franciszkanow.

If you are flying in from Slovakia, the closest major airports are Kraków John Paul II International Airport, Katowice International Airport and Rzeszów-Jasionka Airport. November in Krakow sees daily highs of 9°C and lows of 1°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
