KRAKOW SPECIAL OFFER

Exceptional value for a stay at a central and contemporary hotel in Poland’s old capital during the quieter months, includes a visit to Kazimierz district and Wawel Hill with the option to visit Auschwitz-Birkenau and Wieliczka Salt Mine

The former capital of Poland is situated at the foot of the Royal Wawel Castle. The 13th-century merchants’ town has Europe’s largest market square and numerous historical houses, palaces and churches with their magnificent interiors.

Further evidence of the town’s fascinating history is provided by the remnants of the 14th-century fortifications and the medieval site of Kazimierz with its ancient synagogues in the southern part of town, Jagellonian University and the Gothic cathedral where the kings of Poland were buried. The ancient centre of Krakow remains unspoilt and unscathed by the Second World War and stands today as a proud and splendid Medieval city.

Krakow’s existence is owed largely to the Wieliczka Salt Mines, which operated for over 1,000 years. Today, the unique salt sculptures that occupy the underground caverns draw visitors from far afield.
