- the city of Polish kings, one of the most spectacular and most
visited places by foreign tourists. The magnificent Old Town, Wawel
Royal Castle, St. Mary's Church and the Jewish Quarter are just a few
of the must-see places. During lazy walks along the charming streets
of the old town, you will be able to enjoy the unique atmosphere that
cannot be found in any other city.
We suggest that you combine a visit to Cracow with a discovery of the entire Kraków-Częstochowa Upland region, including the famous "Eagles' Nests" tourist trail. This beautiful land with a very varied landscape, with characteristic white monadnocks, is rich in architectural monuments, especially castles and their ruins. It is also valuable in terms of nature and it’s very attractive for family recreation. It will also delight extreme sports enthusiasts.

private driver who will drive you to your chosen hotel.

During the several hours of sightseeing, you will visit the Wawel Royal Castle, which was the residence of the Polish rulers, their necropolis and the place where the history of the country took shape. Then you will walk along the Vistula boulevard to Kazimierz, which is a unique historical spot. The old Jewish district was once inhabited by the Jewish community and functioned as a separate city. Nowadays, it is an artistic and cultural part of Cracow with many pubs and cafes around. You will finish your tour with a walk through “Nowa Huta” - the working-class district of Cracow, which is a perfect example of the socialist realist architecture style - on one hand it is based on Renaissance architecture patterns, on the other hand on the American urban planning concept of the so-called neighbourhood unit.
In the afternoon you will return to your hotel.

The second museum you should not miss during your visit to Cracow is Oskar Schindler's Enamel Factory - the exhibition presents the period of the German occupation of Cracow in years 1939-1945, and is located in the famous Oskar Schindler's Factory, which is the subject of Steven Spilberg's film "Schindler's List".
