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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Wawel Royal Castle and Wawel Cathedral. Step out of Krakow to go to Oswiecim and see Panstwowe Muzeum Auschwitz-Birkenau, which is approximately 1h 20 min away. And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Wieliczka Salt Mine, examine the collection at Muzeum Krakowa, oddzial Fabryka Emalia Oskara Schindlera, admire the striking features of St. Mary's Basilica, and have fun and explore at HistoryLand.

For other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Krakow driving holiday planning tool.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates to Krakow is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Dubai to Krakow is minus 3 hours.
