Prices on request

Krakow is a charming town, complete with cobbled streets and horse-drawn carriages.   Founded on the legend of King Krak slaying a dragon, this is a magical place throughout the year.  During the festive season, however, snow usually falls and coats the city, transforming Krakow into a true winter wonderland. Poland’s ancient capital is famous for its beautiful old town with spectacular architecture, rich in Gothic churches and Baroque palaces.

Explore the fascinating world of the Wieliczka salt mine on a guided tour of this UNESCO listed wonder. During your tour, navigate the amazing chambers of the mine on a 2.5km route past magnificent carvings and statues.  Sometimes referred to as the ‘Underground Salt Cathedral of Krakow’, the attraction includes four chapels which miners have beautifully carved out of the rock.  Furthermore, even the crystals of the chandeliers are made of reconstituted rock salt!

The Old Town

Krakow is bursting with history.  Its beautiful old buildings remain and its museums host collections of priceless artefacts.  Follow in the footsteps of kings on the ‘Royal Route’ – the coronation path of Polish monarchs – from Florianska Gate to Wawel Castle. The castle complex contains a wealth of vibrant treasures; perhaps catch a glimpse of the crown jewels. Experience the mystery of the winding lanes as you celebrate the festive season and bring in the New Year.
