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.
Krakow's Rynek Glowny Central Square and Wawel Cathedral are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore hidden gems such as Planty Park and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Change things up with these side-trips from Krakow: Jasna Gora (in Czestochowa), Oswiecim (Panstwowe Muzeum Auschwitz-Birkenau & Jewish Museum and Synagogue) and Ogrodzieniec Castle (in Ogrodzieniec). Next up on the itinerary: admire the masterpieces at Stained Glass Museum (Muzeum Witrazu), steep yourself in history at Wieliczka Salt Mine, appreciate the extensive heritage of Wawel Royal Castle, and admire the landmark architecture of St. Mary's Basilica.
