Krakow

Poland’s oldest and second largest city is the perfect choice for a fascinating city break. Prepare to be wowed by historic charm, larger than life landmarks and a culture so captivating it hosts a seemingly endless supply of festivals and events all year round. Whether you want to see castles or kiełbasa (Polish sausage), Krakow certainly won’t disappoint!

Tuck into Tasty Treats

As with all new countries you visit, trying the local delicacies is a must. One of Poland’s most loved dishes is Pierogi, which is a dumpling that is cooked or fried, and filled with meat, vegetables, cheese, fruit or chocolate.

Zurek, a fermented soup made with sour rye flour, is classed as the perfect Polish comfort food and is regarded as a national treasure by the whole country. While there are many regional variations of the dish, the most recognized version consists of sour rye flour with potatoes, plenty of vegetables and lots of meat.

A World of History

Poland has 15 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the old town centre of Kraków and the Wieliczka Salt Mines. In Krakow, the Rynek Underground Museum is a network of tunnels which run underneath the city, where you can discover the timeline of Kraków from its earliest settlements.

Above ground, Poland’s brightly coloured buildings with fascinating architecture take centre stage. One of the must-see sights is The Royal Castle in Warsaw, which sits majestically in Centre Square. There’s plenty of organised tour operators which will take you around the castle and give you a detailed insight into its history.

Touching the Clouds

To the south of Kraków is Poland’s only alpine-like mountain range, the Tatra Mountains. Here you can enjoy miles and miles of hilltop walks, an emerald-green lake and plenty of culture to soak up. The mountains span 785 km² and reach 2,655m at the highest peak, Gerlach Peak.

Because the mountains are a protected national park area, the only way to cross them is by foot, or by skiing in the winter. You can also explore the mountains by bike – in a 230km long trip.
