Resort Information

Vibrant Krakow is not a museum piece, but a bustling, lived-in city. It's especially lively in the evening, when it offers an ever-widening choice of eateries, from traditional Polish, Russian, German, Lithuanian and Jewish to some of the latest 'foodie' fads and fashions.

Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Krakow, meet your Tour Manager and transfer to your city-centre hotel. After check-in, head out to take your first look at this city that boasts the State Rooms of Wawel Castle, the stunning wooden altarpiece of the Mariacki church and the treasures of the Czartoryski Palace. Why not head to a cafe for hot chocolate, or to a local beer cellar to try the local brew?

Day Two

Discover Krakow on our included guided walking tour. This seat of Polish kings was also the former home of much-loved Cardinal Karol Wojtyla (later Pope John Paul II). Admire the medieval and Renaissance splendour of the city's great central square, Rynek Glowny, and its centrepiece the Sukiennice (Cloth Hall).

Here, behind the many-arched facade, you'll find market stalls to browse, cafes where you can sit and relax, and even an art gallery on the upper floor.

Day Three

Today we'll head to Auschwitz-Birkenau, 70km southwest of the city. On this harrowing and thought-provoking pilgrimage you'll tour the buildings of the death camp and gain a sense of the horrors of the "Final Solution".

Later we'll return to Krakow and you'll be free to explore. Visit the Kazimierz quarter - once the historic centre of Jewish culture in the city - or the 'Pharmacy under the Eagle' museum across the river in the Podgorze district - the cramped wartime ghetto.

Day Four

Today you're free to discover more of the city's sights, or to join an optional excursion to see the vast underground chambers, full-sized chapel and stupendous concert hall of Wieliczka's astonishing salt mine. Find out about life in the mines at the on-site museum, and browse the subterranean gift shop and cafe before catching the lift back to the surface.

Day Five

Depending on your flight time, you may have time to catch a final glimpse of the majestic city before we transfer you to the airport to check in for your flight home.

Reigate, Surrey Couple
Overall this was an excellent holiday and I would definitely recommend it. The slightly lower marks for the visits were due to the systems at the sights for the through put of people, coupled with sparse information. Although they were understandably packed, perhaps consideration should be given to facilitating people being able to have a snack etc. as we generally didn't return to the hotel until mid/late afternoon.
The slightly lower mark for the tour manager was due to sometimes having unclear instructions regarding meeting points, especially for such a large group.
Lower mark on flight was due to there being no flexibility on the selection of seats.

we thoroughly enjoyed the holiday and loved Kraków our only criticism would be that during the trips there was no time to have a proper break for something to eat and drink just a couple of 5 minute breaks and we feel some time could be factored in for a proper break although we appreciate that you are operating to a time table and it was a very busy time. We also wish to say that our rep, Roger, was brilliant.

From the time we left Gatwick to our days in and around Krakow and our arrival back at Gatwick we were looked after by a very dedicated and professional team. So very well done Newmarket from a happy and contented customer.

CLAIRE

Birmingham Family
The holiday gave myself and my daughters a real taste of Krakow, it was a good introduction to a beautiful city and country. The hotel was excellent, very comfortable and staff were helpful and friendly. The staff in the hotel all spoke English, which was really useful because the prospect of trying to speak Polish was rather daunting! The trip to the city gave us a taste of all the lovely things to see, but there was simply not enough time to see everything. the second trip to Auschwitz was almost too much to take in, it was harrowing and very powerful, a place everyone should visit once in their life. My daughters went on the salt mine trip on the final day, which they really enjoyed.

Because of the times of our flights we only had 3 full days in Krakow, it would have been better still if we had had 4 or 5 days so that we could take our time to look around a little more and rest in between visits. Sadly we had no time to use the hotel swimming pool. Overall it was a lovely trip which I would highly recommend, although all visitors should be prepared for a huge amount of walking, bring comfy shoes and clothes for all weathers!
