Krakow

Slavic Rome

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.
Attractions like Wawel Royal Castle and Krakow's Rynek Glowny Central Square make great kid-friendly stops. Step out of Krakow to go to Oswiecim and see Panstwowe Muzeum Auschwitz-Birkenau, which is approximately 1h 15 min away. And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Wieliczka Salt Mine, get engrossed in the history at Muzeum Uniwersytetu Jagiellonskiego Collegium Maius, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Kazmierz The Former Jewish District.

To see where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Krakow travel planner.

In December, daily temperatures in Krakow can reach 5°C, while at night they dip to -2°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
