What to see in Krakow?
How to spend time in and around Krakow? Plan a trip to this city!
You must see the Old Town of Krakow. It is a place full of life 24 hours a day. There is always something going on here, there are always people here. In addition to being a cultural place, it is also an amazing place architecturally. You can really spend a lot of time in this place. There are many restaurants, cafes and other places where you can spend time with your loved ones.
Since Krakow, of course, it’s Wawel Castle. It’s hard to imagine a trip to this city without this place. Wawel is a hill towering over the Old Town, and the famous legend of the Wawel Dragon is associated with the place. Is there anyone here who has never heard it? Wawel Castle is also the site of the Royal Castle and the Archcathedral Basilica of St. Stanislaus and St. Wenceslaus – these are very important places on the historical map of Poland. The chapels and crypts in the basilica are worth a visit.
And for all art lovers, a must-see place will be MOCAK, or the Museum of Contemporary Art. This is one of the most popular museums in the city. If you love painting, this is definitely the place for you. But not only that, as this museum has a well-stocked library (as many as 10,000 books were donated to it by Polish artists), so it will surely appeal to literature lovers as well. This place is really fascinating and worth a visit!
Krakow shooting tour
And if you want attractions and interesting activities at the same time, the ideal solution can be Krakow shooting range. What it’s all about. If you decide to buy such a trip, you get access to a shooting range, where you learn to shoot from professional instructors. If this is attractive to you, you can really have an interesting time.
The former Jewish district of Kazimierz has become one of the most fashionable in Cracow. Initially on its outskirts, gently neglected, but with a unique atmosphere that began to attract both investors and tourists, it is now suffering from an increased influx of crowds, resulting in the complete destruction of that charming street scene we once knew so well. Still, it’s worth a visit for its amazing atmosphere.
Jan Matejko Museum
Next on our list of Krakow attractions is the Jan Matejko House, which was established two years after Matejko’s death to store paintings of all kinds and sizes by this famous painter. The collection boasts many items that are not only artistic, but also historical, as they give a glimpse of who he really was as a person through items related to him.
