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.


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.
