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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Krakow's Rynek Glowny Central Square and Wieliczka Salt Mine. Visiting Nature & Wildlife Tours and Pieniński Park Narodowy will get you outdoors. Explore Krakow's surroundings by going to Panstwowe Muzeum Auschwitz-Birkenau (in Oswiecim), Jasna Gora (in Czestochowa) and Ogrodzieniec Castle (in Ogrodzieniec). And it doesn't end there: get to know the fascinating history of Wawel Royal Castle, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sanctuary of Divine Mercy, examine the collection at Polish Aviation Museum, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Sukiennice (Cloth Hall).
