Kraków & Zakopane

Enjoy city sophistication and a mountain escape

Majestically medieval, Kraków is the cultural capital of Poland and its only city to have remained unscathed by the ravages of the Second World War. Its stunning and compact Old Town boasts the exquisite interiors of St Mary’s Basilica, the glorious domes of Wawel Cathedral, the royal treasures of Wawel Castle and the impressive Rynek Główny – the largest market square in Europe. Kraków’s former Jewish quarter, Kazimierz, is a jumble of pretty squares and lively streets. Fascinating museums, a vibrant cultural life and achingly pretty architecture make Kraków the perfect destination for a city break.

The beautiful mountain resort of Zakopane sits snugly at the base of the Tatras Mountains in the far south of Poland. Surrounded by emerald-green foothills and jagged peaks, it is a popular base from which to explore the stunning natural landscapes and has often been a haven for writers, artists and musicians.

    Wild and dramatic, the Dunajec Valley is sculpted into the heart of Eastern Europe. Within the valley, the spectacular Dunajec Gorge is a deep ravine best viewed from a traditional wooden raft. These leisurely rafts are formed from wooden canoes bound together to hold several passengers, and are steered by pole through the varied landscapes created by the serpentine river.
