The trip to the salt mine Wieliczka was the most exciting, informative and fascinating excursion that we had the pleasure to experience during our time in Krakow. A personal favourite of mine and worthwhile for sure.
Krakow (Polish Kraków) is located in the south of Poland about 350 km southwest of Warsaw. Here live about 760,000 inhabitants, making Krakow the second largest city in the country.
Krakow is located on the upper Vistula. Here you will find numerous buildings of the Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and later eras of art history.
There is that thing about visiting churches. We saw many over the years and if you’re not an expert in the history of art one could say many churches look similar.
Talking to locals one is under the impression that Krakow is indeed a vodka city. But over time, Krakow developed a vibrant beer culture that cannot be ignored. So, is Krakow now a City of Beers?
Looking for a viewing point in Krakow? We went on a quest for one and climbed the Krak Hill. A fantastic spot in the middle of the city, and completely free!
Poland is known for its hearty cuisine. So we followed the traces of the sweeter dishes of Krakow and found a few “sins” we would like to recommend.
Those who visit Krakow are magically drawn towards it: The Wawel Hill and the castle grounds. It is here where the history of Krakow becomes tangible for those who come with some time.
