Top 10 Things to Do in Krakow

Krakow is the second largest city in Poland but definitely the most beautiful. Known for its architecture and history, Krakow is rightly seeing a resurgence in tourism. While there are so many things to do in Krakow, for most tourists, they have to narrow their scope and choose what they can fit into their schedule.

1Wawel Hill

Boasting both the Wawel Castle, Wawel Castle Museum as well as the Wawel Cathedral, this should be tourists’ first stop on a day where they can simply wander and take in all that’s on offer.

2Jewish Quarter

A section of the city that’s been revitalized since the end of WWII, it’s rich in history and now flourishing as one of the busiest parts of Krakow, night or day.

3Church of Saints Peter and Paul

Nestled deep in the Old Town, the Church of Saints sits in front of a square, lined with life-sized statues of the Apostles. As an architectural accomplishment, you don’t have to be religious to appreciate it.

4 Auschwitz

Though outside the city, Auschwitz is a must-visit and not just for history buffs. The concentration camp of Auschwitz is a whole day trip.

5Cloth Hall

Dominating the Old Town, this structure is the best-preserved mall in the world. At Christmas, the cloth hall is stuffed with vendors during the famous Christmas market of Krakow.
