Details of the stay: Krakow in 5 days - 5 days

Day 1 : The old centre

Rendez-vous on the Rynek Glowny, the heart of Krakow. Visit Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Cloth Hall, then stop by one of the many cafés on the square for a siernik. Continue on Florianska Street, a segment of the Royal Way, which will take you to Barbacane. Here, then go down Pijarska Street towards Rynek, passing through the university district where you will visit the Collegium Maius. Then take Golebia Street and exit on Grodzka Street, the second part of the Royal Way, to reach the foot of Wawel Hill.

Day 2 : Krakow, former capital city

Spend the first part of the day visiting the Wawel complex which, together with the castle and cathedral, is the symbol of the union of political and religious powers in Poland. Leave the castle via the Dragon Cave. You will find yourself directly on the edge of the Vistula, next to the statue of the dragon, symbol of Krakow. Continue on the quays up to the na Skalce church which overlooks the river. Skaleczna Street will take you to the heart of Kazimierz, the former Jewish district that retains the authentic charm of yesteryear. Stroll through its narrow streets, not to mention visiting the Remu'h synagogue and stopping at one of the many cafés in the area.
In the afternoon, after visiting Wawel Hill, you can take a boat trip along the Vistula River and then dedicate yourself to visiting the magnificent Czartoryski Prince Museum, which has paintings by Rembrandt and Leonardo da Vinci in its collection.

Day 3 : Kazimierz

Spend the morning visiting the old Jewish quarter of Kazimierz, with its many synagogues and Genuine atmosphere. Stop by one of the cafés surrounding Nowy Square. In the afternoon, cross the Lateus Bernatek pedestrian bridge to pass through the Podgorze district which, during the Second World War, had been transformed into a ghetto. Here you will visit Oskar Schindler's factory and Bohaterow Getta Square.

Day 4 : Natural Krakow

Discover the Zwierzyniec district, west of the city centre, which offers you a rather bucolic image of Krakow. Small churches and vast green spaces, as well as the Tadeusz Kosciuszko mound, from which you will enjoy a magnificent view of the old city.

Day 5 : Auschwitz, memory tourism

For the third day, choose a trip around Krakow, Oswiecim or Wieliczka, depending on your interests. Oswiecim is 65 km from Krakow and the excursion will occupy you the whole day. You will visit the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camps. The village of Wieliczka is located about ten kilometres from Krakow, and visits the famous salt mines. If you leave in the morning, this excursion will allow you to return to Krakow early in the afternoon and enjoy a little more of the city.
