Krakow weekend breaks
Once the capital city of Poland, Krakow old town is the area built within the original city walls and is full of historical features all within a short (pedestrianised) walking distance. Places to visit on Krakow weekend breaks include Wawel Royal Castle and cathedral, the 14th century university buildings, St Mary's church and Tower by the huge Rynek Glowny grand square, Cloth
Hall, with it's wooden stalls and shopping arcade (a great place for crafts and Krakow souvenirs) and also the old Jewish quarter of Krakow for its wonderful atmosphere. Compared to some other European cities you can find some cheap deals for Krakow mini breaks but they are catching up fast as the popularity of short holidays and tourism brings its downside. Krakow holiday highlights away from the city include the famous salt mine with
it's caverns, underground lakes and sculptures carved from salt and no Krakow weekend can be complete if you miss the unforgettable experience of Auschwitz, a poignant symbol of the Holocaust.
Krakow flights arrive at Krakow Balice Airport where there are trains leaving approx every 30mins for Krakow city center.
