Krakow holidays unveil grand architecture, laid-back eateries and poignant landmarks

If one of your favourite parts of a European city break is sitting beneath a parasol and sipping a coffee or craft beer while enjoying a Medieval backdrop, Krakow holidays will certainly satisfy. Its Stare Miasto, or Old Town, is one of the grandest on the continent. Having survived the worst of the war, it’s a preserved and picturesque realm of cobbled streets, Gothic spires and relaxed squares, and a pleasure to wander on a sunny afternoon or balmy evening. And if you ever fancy a break from the historic stuff, you can always head to the more bohemian quarters to discover hip watering holes and places to feast on pierogi, game meats or perhaps a cheeky pizza.

Why travel to Krakow with ebookers?

As well as listing the best hotels and packages, ebookers offer up to 15% discount if you book Krakow flights and hotels at the same time. While this is very much an all-year destination, anyone looking for long, leisurely, lazy days out and about will probably want to come in the spring or autumn seasons, when you can enjoy pleasant weather with fewer crowds. That said, winter has its own ethereal beauty, with the old architecture looking magical when sheened with frost.

Top things to do in Krakow

There’s no denying the Old Town is the main focus of most Krakow holidays. It has so many areas to gaze out at, from Rynek Glowny, well known as one of the finest market squares in the world, to St Mary’s Basilica, a brick Gothic church which dates back to the 14th century and has a stunningly intricate altarpiece to admire when you go inside. History lovers will also want to check out Wawel Castle, which encompasses a range of architectural styles from Renaissance to Romanesque. Meanwhile, those with edgier tastes should make a beeline for the Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow, which showcases bold, conceptual artworks that challenge even the most experienced and jaded museum aficionados. Curious to see where the hip and creative locals like to hang out? Head over to the Kazimierz district and you’ll mingle amid beer gardens and absinthe bars.

Getting around in Krakow

There’s simply no better or more enjoyable way to take in the ornate buildings of the Old Town than on foot. If you do need to get somewhere more quickly, you can just jump on one of the reliable bus and tram services, or grab a taxi. Hiring a car won’t be necessary if you’re staying in the heart of the city, though having your own set of wheels may come in handy for intrepid explorers looking to see a bit more of Poland.
