10 Reasons to Book a Flight to Krakow in 2023

Experience the Best of Krakow in September.

The magical city of Krakow, Poland is a true gem of Eastern Europe, boasting stunning medieval architecture, a vibrant cultural scene, and world-class cuisine. Fit for everyone, this is a location to explore no matter what you anticipate gaining from your trip. Stay a few nights, stay for a week or longer – you won’t regret it and here’s why!

The Sights
Tour the city by day or night, you’ll find a wormhole of captivating sights full of beauty and charm, check out Krakow’s Old Town, or experience the charm of Kazimierz: a unique excursion, as the locals would say, that unveils the beauty of the historic Jewish district. Wander through picturesque narrow streets, marvel at the intricate tenement houses, and discover the district’s many hidden gems in any guided or self-led tour!

Travel Back in Time
Not only will you be captivated by the beauty of Krakow, but you will also be intrigued by the history that the city holds. Explore the depths of history and honour the memories of the past by visiting the Auschwitz Museum. Step foot on the site of the largest Third Reich concentration camp, where you’ll come face to face with the chilling reality of the Holocaust. A visit to this sacred place is a poignant and emotional journey that will leave an indelible mark on your heart and mind.

Savour the Flavours
Visit one of the many delicious restaurants in the city to get a real taste of Poland. This cuisine is hearty and delicious; you can sample traditional Polish dishes such as pierogi, kielbasa, and bigos.

But, here are some of our recommendations:
