Newest Review: ... and took the train to the city - this was easy - just a 5min walk or a 2min bus ride from the airport and it takes you into the city centre, it cost 8PLN each and took about 15mins. We checked in and freshened up and went for a walk round the old town. We walked passed the Barbican and through the Florian gate - both excellent examples of the towns historic past and here some ofthe old city ... more

We had our main holidays booked for the year and wanted somewhere to go for a short weekend break in the winter. The only requirement was cheap and from a local airport! I searched various places and Krakow came out on top! We had been to Prague the previous year and really enjoyed the different architecture associated with eastern Europe, we felt we had been somewhere different than where we had been before. We researched things to do in Krakow and decided that it was easily do-able in a 3 night trip and we could take in a visit to Auschwitz and maybe the salt mines whilst we were there. So we went ahead and booked it! 3 nights flying ... Read the complete review

The wife and I have just returned from a short weekend break in Krakow, southern Poland. We enjoy the odd city break and having visited Berlin and Prague we decided to go slightly further east this year with a visit to Krakow. Krakow is located to the south of Poland and is the country's 2nd largest city, home to 750,000 people. It's around a 2-hour flight away from the UK - we flew with RyanAir from East Midlands for a very reasonable £80 for the two of us. We stayed in the 3-star Hotel Matejko which is around a 5-minute walk away from the centre of the city. It cost us only £130 for 3nights, which is pretty good value! Krakow used to be ...

I have been to Krakow twice - the first time I visited with two of my friends and the second time I went for a romantic break with my boyfriend and I've got to say - I love this city. I think that it's a fantastic place to visit - it's scenic, there are lots of things to do and it's cheap (as Poland is yet to join the Euro). Krakow is a beautiful city, the architecture is old, some of the buildings are falling apart, but it all adds to the charm. The square in the centre is full of hustle and bustle and most days there is a market where street traders sell pastries and fresh flowers. The city has a real old European flavour to it and it is the ... Read the complete review

Krakow is one of the most stunning cities in Europe, it was possibly the only Polish city that was not destroyed in its entirity by the German invasion. This they put down to the Smoka Jama (A dragon that lives under Wawel Castle and protects them), although the real story is actually just as interesting. Set in South East Poland, Krakow is a regional capital and is one of the cultural capitals of Poland. It is the scene of great history and includes amongst tourist trips, the amazing Wawel Castle, the rynek (main square). Kazimierz (The Jewish district in which parts of Schindlers List were filmed). Auschwitz (Something you don't want to see, but have to ... Read the complete review

I visited Krakow in September 2008. My intention was to travel solo through Poland to Lithuania where is was to firstly meet up with my wife and then secondly run the Vilnius marathon before flying home from Vilnius. Having travelled pretty extensively around Europe I have to be honest and say that prior to my trip Poland never really had much appeal. In fact to be honest it was a country that I knew next to nothing about. I arrived in Krakow via a cheap and un-cheerful Ryanair flight. To be honest though for £60 return I don't care if the air stewardess eyeballs me when I unpack my own provisions for the flight. The airport, John Paul II ... Read the complete review
