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 enjoy the stunning natural landscapes and has often been a haven for writers, artists and musicians.

Kraków Walking Tour

Experience the essence of Kraków with a beautiful walk around the Old Town (Stare Miasto) and Jewish Quarter (Kazimierz). This guided walk includes interesting commentary on Kraków’s beautiful buildings and intriguing history, which stretches back thousands of years.

Wieliczka Salt Mine

This ancient salt mine is today an incredible subterranean formation of sparkling sculptures, reverent chapels, and dark lakes linked by a maze of caverns and passageways. Found just outside of the city of Kraków, these spectacularly hewn chambers form a fascinating and beautiful underground world to explore.

Dunajec Valley & River Raft

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.


Richly folkloric, the mountain resort of Zakopane is known for its crisp air and dramatic peak views as well as for its pretty wooden chalets. This unique style of architecture dates back to the turn of the 20th century, and amongst these ornate villas are an array of boutiques, restaurants and museums to explore.



Known across the world as the former site of a mass genocide orchestrated by the Nazis, the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp was established in 1940 and was witness to the brutal killing of over a million people. Today, it is a sobering memorial and museum which confronts the horror and atrocities that took place here.

Wawel Royal Castle

A paragon of Kraków’s identity, this stately residence as it stands today is a 16th century palace built in the Renaissance style, but it has been an important settlement for thousands of years. Within the castle are five fascinating exhibitions which tell the story of Polish royalty and hold impressive collections of weaponry, oriental art, Italian and Dutch artworks and period furniture.

Wawel Cathedral

A national sanctuary, the beautiful Wawel Cathedral has crowned many a Polish monarch and its history stretches back over 1,000 years. A magnificent building both inside and out, the cathedral is a compendium of several chapels and towers from different periods of history, and shelters an overwhelming number of treasures, tombs, paintings and carvings.
