Krakow

Slavic Rome

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. Home to over a million people, the city features 18 distinct boroughs, each claiming considerable autonomy and boasting its own particular character. Krakow's old town, a World Heritage Site, represents the historical heart of the city and contains its most significant architectural treasures. Evolved from a small Stone Age settlement, this booming city now serves as one of central Europe's major hubs of culture, education, and commerce. A growing favorite with foreign foodies, Krakow offers a diverse restaurant scene, its old town alone featuring hundreds of pubs and restaurants. Take a look at our Poland trip builder website to refine the details of your trip to Krakow.

Where to stay in Krakow

Krakow ranks among one of Europe's increasingly popular tourist destinations, which is reflected in the rising costs of comfortable lodgings. The best hotels are concentrated in and around the historical old town, where five-star luxury comes at a very steep price. Old town hotels place you just steps from fine shops and restaurants, as well as the city's main museums and galleries. However, if your trip involves a tight budget, avoid the central district and check out mid-range hotels and economical hostels in one of the outlying neighborhoods.
