From exploring the historic parts of town to sampling delicacies at local restaurants, you'll find loads of engaging things to do in Krakow. History buffs go to Wawel Royal Castle and adjacent Wawel Cathedral, a complex that served as the home of Polish kings.

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.
