Spread the love

Sometimes, one day can’t be enough to fully explore the city. Krakow is one of the most beautiful cities in Poland and makes a perfect city break. Since most of us don’t have much time, 3 days in Krakow is enough to see all the top attractions. We put together this 3 day in Krakow itinerary to help you have the best experience here.

what to see in Krakow in 3 days

But first, why is Krakow famous?

Krakow is famous because it is one of the oldest cities in Poland. The second largest Polish city has a rich history, a UNESCO status and grand historic architecture. It was the official capital of Poland until the 16th century. It is world-famous for its beautifully preserved Old Town and the Nazi’s largest concentration camp – Auschwitz-Birkenau.

 

Is 3 days enough in Krakow?

With 3 days in Krakow, you have enough time to explore its main attractions and take at least one day trip outside of the city. We spent 3 full days in Krakow and had enough time to explore its famous landmarks. We also visited three other UNESCO World Heritage sites nearby.

72 hours in Krakow. 3 days is enough time to see the best of Krakow.

3 days in Krakow – day 1 itinerary

You will spend your first day in the city centre exploring the Wawel Hill, the Royal Route and the UNESCO-listed Old Town. You will find plenty of attractions to keep you occupied for one day.  

 

1. Wawel Castle

3 days in Krakow - start at Wawel Hill

Start your 3 days in Krakow itinerary with a stroll to the famous Wawel Hill. It lies just south of the Old Town, on the left bank of the Vistula River. You can reach it by the short Kanonicza Street – it’s one of the oldest and most beautiful streets in the city. 

Wawel Hill is home to many attractions, and you could easily spend at least half a day here. It’s a pretty place to visit because the Wawel Hill offers beautiful city views

3 days in Krakow - visit Wawel Castle and its museums

One of the first attractions you should head to is the Wawel Castle complex. Did you know that the Wawel Castle was the home of Polish kings and queens for centuries? Today, the Wawel Castle is one of the best art museums in the country and one of the most visited art museums in the world. The current 14th-century Wawel Castle is also a UNESCO World Heritage site as part of the historic centre.

TIP:

If you visit the castle with kids, don’t miss the Dragon’s Den and a dragon statue that breathes real fire.

 

GOOD TO KNOW:

Good news – the castle grounds are free to enter. If you want to explore the castle and the cathedral inside, visit the Wawel Hill first thing in the morning. There are only a limited number of tickets for sale, and they sell out quickly. Don’t forget – opening times vary during the year – check their website. 

Their ticket system is confusing because you need to choose every attraction you want to visit. We visited all the Wawel Hill attractions, but some of them you can skip to save time. 

The highlights are the State Rooms, the Crown treasury, and the armoury. You can also explore the Sandomierska Tower, which offers pretty views and the Image of the Golden Age. Also, don’t miss Art of the Orient – it has the largest collection of Ottoman tents in Europe. The tiny Royal Gardens, the First Floor Galleries, the Lost Wawel and the Church of Saint Gereon aren’t worth visiting.

 

 

2. Wawel Cathedral

3 days in Krakow itinerary - Wawel Cathedral

Many tourists leave once they see the Wawel Castle complex, but it is worth staying here a little longer. Make your way to Wawel Cathedral, which you can find behind the castle walls. 

Wawel Cathedral should be on your 3 days in Krakow itinerary because it’s one of the most important churches in Poland. This nearly 1,000-year-old Gothic Catholic cathedral served as the coronation site of Polish monarchs. Also, it has been the burial site for Polish monarchs and national heroes since the 14th century. 

GOOD TO KNOW:

While Wawel Cathedral is free to enter, you need a ticket to see other parts. Admission to Sigismund’s Bell Tower, the Royal tombs and the museums cost 22 złoty (£4.40 as of November 2023). You can also buy an audio guide in English and other languages for an extra 12 zloty (£2.40). Don’t forget that the Cathedral Museum isn’t open on Sundays and the Archdiocesan Museum on Mondays. Visit Wawel Cathedral from 9 am – 5 pm (Mon-Sat) and 12.30 pm – 5 pm on Sundays between April and October. If you visit Wawel Cathedral between November and March, it closes at 4 pm.

 

3. Royal Road 

Krakow in 3 days - Walk the Royal Road which follows coronation processions

Afterwards, walk towards Krakow’s Old Town and follow the Royal Route. This is a legendary road which the locals connect with the golden age of the city. 

As the name suggests, the Royal Road follows the route of the coronation procession through the city when this city served as the royal capital. It begins at St. Florian Church at Florianska Street and enters the Main Square. After that, it continues through the centre towards the Wawel Hill.

Walking the Royal Road is one of the best things to do in Krakow in 3 days because it follows coronation processions and parades of kings and queens. Also, this famous coronation path passes around the popular attractions.

 

4. St. Peter and Paul’s Church 

Saint Peter and Paul’s Church at 54 Grodzka Street

This church with no tower is a perfect example of increasing Italian architectural influence across the continent.

 

Your next stop should be Saint Peter and Paul’s Church at 54 Grodzka Street. The Jesuits built this Roman Catholic Baroque church in the 16th century. Saint Peter and Paul’s Church, with its beautiful stone façade, is one of the best examples of early Baroque in Poland. It is unusual for this Polish city because it was common to use red-brick materials on the exterior instead. 

The highlights are the limestone statues of twelve apostles and the beautiful high altar, which is also from the 18th century. Inside, you can also see statues of patrons of Poland (Saint Wojciech and Saint Stanislaus).

Saint Peter and Paul’s Church should also be on your 3 days in Krakow itinerary because it houses the longest Foucault pendulum in Poland. It has 46.5 metres (152 ft). Every Thursday, you can observe the Earth’s rotation.

 

GOOD TO KNOW:

 You can visit Saint Peter and Paul’s Church for free every day except on Mondays.

 

5. Main Market square 

3 days in Krakow - explore the Main Market Square

Rynek Główny

 

It’s easy to see why many tourists put the Main Market Square high on their bucket list when they spend 3 days in Krakow. The Main Market Square is the largest medieval town square in Europe. It’s the centre of Krakow life and has a UNESCO status (together with the Old Town).

The Main Market Square, lined with pastel-coloured townhouses, measures 200 by 200 metres (656 by 656 ft). It lies on the Royal Road, which follows the route of the coronation procession. The square, which you can see today, got its urban design in the 13th century after the Mongols demolished the area. 

Krakow in 3 days - The Main Market Square

The Main Market Square has been one of the most important sites in the city for trade for almost 1,000 years. Today, you can find the best restaurants and attractions, such as St. Mary’s Basilica or the Cloth Hall.

 

6. Cloth Hall 

Krakow in 3 days - The Cloth Hall

the Sukiennice Cloth Hall, designed as the centre for the cloth trade

 

At the centre of the Main Market Square is the Cloth Hall – it’s one of Krakow’s landmarks. This iconic Renaissance-style building with UNESCO status was once an important trading centre. During its golden age, the Cloth Hall was full of international traders selling exotic imports from the East, such as spices, silk or leather. This Polish city exported textiles and salt from the nearby Wieliczka Salt Mine. 

Today, the Cloth Hall is one of the best places to visit in Krakow because it houses the stalls of the locals selling souvenirs, crafts and jewellery. On the upper floor of the Cloth Hall is the Sukiennice Museum. This National Museum houses one of the largest permanent exhibitions of 19th-century Polish paintings and sculptures. 

TIP:

The Sukiennice Restaurant on the first floor of the Cloth Hall offers beautiful views of the market square from its terrace.

 

Lunch

Taste some local Polish food

Pierogi

 

Taste some local food in one of the restaurants on the Main Market Square before you see other attractions here. We tried Restauracja Sukiennice, Max 18 Restauracja and the Spaghetti Pizzeria and Ristorante. All three restaurants had delicious food and affordable prices.

 

7. St Mary’s Basilica 

3 days in Krakow - St Mary’s Basilica

Your next stop on your itinerary for 3 days in Krakow is St Mary’s Basilica. This 14th-century brick Gothic Church has a UNESCO status and is one of the top attractions. Why, you may ask? Because St Mary’s Basilica, with two different towers, is one of the best examples of Polish Gothic architecture.

The foundations of the basilica you can see today date back to the 13th century. The Mongols destroyed the previous church during the invasion. After that, the locals built this 80-metre (262 ft) tall church.

St Mary’s Basilica inside

St Mary’s Basilica has one of the most beautifully decorated cathedral interiors in Europe. The highlights are the blue vaulted ceiling and wooden altarpiece carved by a Nuremberg master, Veit Stoss. This 15th-century altar attracts thousands of tourists daily because it is the largest Gothic altar in the world

St Mary’s Basilica has the largest Gothic altar in the world.

During the Nazi occupation of Krakow, the Germans took the altar and shipped it to Germany. They hid it in the Nuremberg Castle and returned it to Poland in 1946.

 

FUN FACT:

The altarpiece is about 13 m (42 ft) high and 11 m (36 ft) wide when fully open. It’s made of three types of wood and holds more than 200 figures. Veit Stoss carved the tallest figures from 500-year-old trees, making them over 1,000 years old today.

 

TIP:

Don’t miss a ceremony of the unveiling of the altar at 11.50 am every day.

 

GOOD TO KNOW:

St Mary’s Basilica is open from 11.30 am – 6pm between Mondays and Saturdays. You can visit it on Sundays and bank holidays between 2 pm and 6 pm. Donation is 15 PLN (£3).

 

8. St. Mary’s Trumpet Call

listen to the bugle call played from St Mary’s Basilica Tower.

If there is one more thing you shouldn’t miss, it’s the bugle call played from St Mary’s Basilica Tower. Every hour, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, a trumpeter plays the tune called the Hejnal Mariacki from St Mary’s tallest tower. St Mary’s Trumpet call breaks off in the mid-melody. It’s because the Cracovians honour a trumpeter, whom the Mongols shot in the throat while sounding the alarm before the attack on the city.

 

9. St Mary’s Basilica Tower

3 days in Krakow: Climb St Mary's Basilica Tower

If you have any energy left, climb the steps to the top of the tower and enjoy gorgeous views of the Main Market Square. If your timing is right, you can witness the performance of a trumpeter as he plays St Mary’s Trumpet Call. Don’t miss it, as it’s one of the unique things to see when you spend 3 days in Krakow.

GOOD TO KNOW:

The Bugle Tower is open only from April to October, and hours vary during the year. Reserve your tickets early as they sell out quickly (15 PLN – £3). Our time slot was from 12.40 pm to 1.10 pm – works well for this itinerary.

 

10. Rynek Underground

3 days in Krakow itinerary - Rynek Underground Museum

If you want to soak up the city’s rich past, add the Rynek Underground Museum to your 3 days in Krakow itinerary. As the name suggests, only 4 metres (13 ft) beneath the Main Market Square lies the Historical Museum

The locals discovered various artefacts around its Cloth Hall. After that, there was a massive excavation project. It revealed the foundation of the previous Cloth Hall and the remnants of merchant stalls and also objects, such as coins, jewellery or clothing. They even found the remnants of a settlement, which the Mongols destroyed in the 13th century.

Rynek Underground Museum

This multimedia museum, with video displays and digital reconstructions, shows how Krakow’s Old Town looked 700 years ago. You can even see the old cemetery. It is the richest early medieval necropolis in Lesser Poland. This old cemetery has an 11th-century grave of a supposed vampire.

 

GOOD TO KNOW:

The entry ticket to the Rynek Underground Museum costs 32 PLN (£6.40), free every Tuesday. Don’t forget to book your time slot in advance because tickets often sell out. 

You can visit the Rynek Underground from 10 am – 7 pm (Mon, Wed, Thurs) or until 2 pm on Tuesdays. If you come on Friday or Saturday, you can visit the museum until 8 pm. Don’t forget, the Rynek Underground Museum is not open on the second Monday of the month.

The entrance to the Rynek Underground Museum is on the outside of the Cloth Hall building. It is opposite St. Mary’s Basilica at 1 Rynek Główny. You need to buy your ticket to the museum on the other side of the Cloth Hall. It says ‘Podziemia Rynku’ on the door, and the address is 21 Rynek Główny.

 

 

11. Town Hall Tower

Town Hall Tower has a photography exhibition of the Main Market Square.

Did you know that this Polish city has its own leaning tower? It tilts almost half a metre, and you can find it on the western side of the Main Market Square. The 75-metre (246 ft) tall red brick tower is the remaining part of Krakow Town Hall. The locals demolished the old town hall in the 19th century when they decided to open up this large square. They saved only the 14th-century Gothic tower. After that, it became one of the landmarks in the city. 

Today, Town Hall Tower is one of the popular attractions in the city because it has a photography exhibition of the Main Market Square. However, the main reason why tourists flock here is that it offers beautiful views of this famous square. 

TIP:

If you have time to climb only one tower, make sure it is St. Mary’s Basilica. 

 

GOOD TO KNOW:

You can visit the Town Hall Tower for free on Mondays. Otherwise, expect to pay 18 PLN (£3.60). The opening times of the Town Hall Tower are 10 am – 6 pm (Tue-Sun) or 11 am – 3 pm on Mondays.

 

12. Florianska Street

3 days in Krakow - Florianska Street

We also recommend you to find Florianska Street, which is only a short walk from the Main Square. This beautiful pedestrian street is one of the main streets in the Old Town. It marks the beginning of the Royal Road and is one of the most famous promenades in the city. It has many souvenir shops, boutique shops and also some restaurants.

 

13. St Florian’s Gate

St Florian’s Gate

At the end of Florianska Street, you will find Florian’s Gate, which marks the start of the Royal Route. This 13th-century beautifully preserved gate was one of the seven gates leading into the city. The locals built it as a part of the protective walls after the attack, which destroyed most of the city.

Until the 19th century, this city had massive medieval city walls with 47 towers. Today, there are only three towers left. They are connected to the Florian’s Gate. It is the only remaining gate in the city.

Florian’s Gate - the only remaining gate in the city.

 

14. Barbican 

3 days in Krakow - Barbican

Don’t miss the 15th-century Barbican just outside the old town. This circular defensive structure was once a part of the defensive walls. The Poles connected it to the city walls to increase security on St. Florian’s Gate. Many years ago, there was also a covered passageway which served as a checkpoint for everyone who entered the city. There was also a moat in front of the Barbican – for extra protection.  

Today, the Barbican is one of the best places to visit because it is one of only three fortified outposts still surviving in Europe.

 

3 days in Krakow – day 2 itinerary

On your second day, we recommend you wake up early to beat the crowds. You will explore the Auschwitz concentration camp, the Oskar Schindler Factory and the attractions nearby. Also, you will visit the former Jewish district.

 

15. Auschwitz Birkenau

3 days in Krakow - Auschwitz-Birkenau

Start the second day of your three days in Krakow itinerary by exploring the infamous Auschwitz-Birkenau. We are not going to lie – Auschwitz is a difficult place to visit, and your trip will be emotional. But it is very important to visit it if you want to better understand the horrors of the Holocaust in the Second World War.

If you don’t know, Auschwitz was the largest of the German Nazi concentration camps. The Nazis sent over 1.3 million men, women and children to Auschwitz. They murdered over 1.1 million of them. Others died of starvation, exhaustion, disease, or because of individual executions. Many died during medical experiments. 

Auschwitz Birkenau- the largest of the German Nazi concentration camps

During your visit to Auschwitz Birkenau, you will visit the two concentration camps. You will learn how the prisoners of war lived and hear about their daily lives. Also, you will see exhibits of their belongings, such as shoes, pots, and even a room full of the hair of the victims. The first camp is almost intact – you will visit barracks and even gas chambers. The second, much larger camp is in ruins, but you can see the train tracks and the carriages which the Nazis used for the transportation of victims.

Auschwitz Birkenau has two concentration camps

 

GOOD TO KNOW:

Entry to Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp is free for everyone. However, we recommend you book a guided tour so you can learn about the tragic treatment of Jews and other minorities during World War II. Guided tours are in English and several other languages and are definitely worth it. A guided tour of both camps lasts approximately 3 and a half hours. If you decide to walk on your own you will not learn much. There is not much information on the walls.

 

HOW TO GET TO AUSCHWITZ (Oświęcim in Polish)

There are direct trains from Krakow to Oświęcim, but it takes about 2 hours to get there as you need to catch a local bus. The buses numbered 24 -29 from the train station stop at Auschwitz I and cost 3 PLN.

If you don’t have a car, we recommend you book a guided tour directly from Krakow to save the hassle. Book your guided tours in advance, as they often sell out quickly during the peak season.

 

TIP:

If short on time, combine the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp with the Wieliczka Salt Mines. This way, you can visit two famous UNESCO sites in one day and explore the other attractions on our list on your last day in Krakow.

 

 

16. Oskar Schindler’s enamel factory

Krakow in 3 days - Oskar Schindler’s enamel factory

After lunch, visit Oskar Schindler’s enamel factory at 4 Lipowa Street in the district of Zabłocie. You might recognize this building if you watched the Spielberg movie Schindler’s List. If not, then you should know that German Oskar Schindler saved 1,200 Jews during the Nazi occupation of Krakow

Visiting Oskar Schindler’s enamel factory is one of the best places to visit in Krakow in 3 days because you can learn more about Schindler and his sacrifice to save Jews. You can see the original desk from Schindler’s office, his list, and photos of many survivors. The factory where they filmed Schindler’s List is now a museum. It also shows how the locals suffered during the Nazi occupation of the Second World War.

The factory where they filmed Schindler’s List is now a museum.

 

GOOD TO KNOW:

You can visit Schindler’s Factory for free (limited number of tickets) on Mondays between 10 am and 2 pm. Otherwise, the museum is open from 9 am – 7 pm, and an entry ticket costs 32 PLN (£6.30) for an adult. Don’t forget that Schindler’s Factory is not open on the first Tuesday of the month. Book your tickets only to avoid the queues.

HOW TO GET THERE: use the tram from Krakow Glowny. Get off at Krakow Zablocie and walk from there. You can also walk from the Old Town, but it takes about 30 minutes (2.6km walk).

 

 

17. Ghetto Heroes Square

A short walk from Oskar Schindler’s enamel factory will bring you to the Ghetto Heroes Square. As the name suggests, this infamous square was the largest open space in the ghetto in the city. Before the Nazi rule during WWII, the locals called it Plac Zgody.

Maybe you don’t know, but the Nazis locked up all the Krakow Jews inside the newly-created ghetto. More than 20,000 Polish Jews had to live within the ghetto walls. The ghetto was very crowded because only 3,000 people had lived there. The Ghetto Heroes Square was the only place where the Jews could escape the overcrowded tenements. 

Visiting the Ghetto Heroes Square should be on every tourist itinerary when they spend 3 days in Krakow. It’s because the Ghetto Heroes Square is one of the most important places in the city’s history and the Jews. You are right to think that the Nazi occupants gathered Jews here before deporting them to the nearby concentration camps

In 2005, the locals renovated this square and added 70 large bronze chairs in memory of the victims of the Krakow ghetto. These empty chairs represent thousands of people who the Nazis deported from here. 

TIP:

Don’t miss the Eagle Pharmacy Museum – the only pharmacy in the ghetto, managed by Tadeusz Pankiewicz (the only non-Jewish resident). After deportations, residents met here and shared updates about survivors.

 

18. Kazimierz

old synagogue Krakow

You might recognize this district from Oscar-winning Schindler’s List.

 

Opposite the Ghetto Heroes Square, on the left bank of the Vistula River, is Kazimierz district. This neighbourhood was once a separate city with its own rights. Casimir II the Great founded it, and Kazimierz became a model Jewish community. For many centuries, the catholic Polish and Jews lived here in harmony. The church of St Catherine and the Corpus Christi Basilica stands close to the synagogues in this Jewish quarter, and they prove that. 

In the 15th century, King Jan I Olbracht moved the all-Jewish population to Kazimierz. Later, there was even an interior wall dividing the Jews and Poles. 

Krakow in 3 days - Kazimierz

After the Nazi’s arrival, Kazimierz became deserted and fell into ruins. Today, Kazimierz is one of the best places to see because this former Jewish district is one of the main tourist attractions.

 

Kazimierz has a different layout. It has narrow streets, market squares and small townhouses and synagogues. It has a unique vibe, many galleries, quirky shops, excellent restaurants and numerous synagogues. Don’t miss the Old Jewish Cemetery, the Old Synagogue and the Jewish Galicia Museum with a photo exhibition documenting the remnant of Jewish culture.

 

3 days in Krakow – day 3 itinerary

On your last day, we recommend waking up earlier. After your breakfast, you will visit the Wieliczka Salt Mine. A half-day trip to Wieliczka takes about 4-5 hours of your day, depending on the mode of transport you choose.

 

19. Wieliczka

3 days in Krakow itinerary - Wieliczka Salt Mine

The Wieliczka Salt Mine is one more must-visit attraction for your three days in Krakow itinerary because it is an extraordinary place. 

 

Did you know that the Wieliczka Salt Mine is one of the oldest salt mines in the world? This unusual attraction was one of the first sites which entered the UNESCO World Heritage list. This more than 700-year-old underground salt mine is a Polish historic monument. It is also one of the best day trips from Krakow. 

ABOUT WIELICZKA

The history of the Wieliczka Salt Mine goes back to the Middle Ages. This mine has produced salt since the Neolithic times. In the 13th century, it became the largest source of salt in Poland. Over the years, the Wieliczka Salt Mine was crucial for Poland’s economy. This mine has a mind-blowing size of 287 km (178 miles) and reaches a depth of 327 metres (1,073 ft). 

The salt mine is so big that you can visit only about 2% of the salt labyrinth on your guided tour.

 The salt mine is so big that you can visit only about 2% of the salt labyrinth on your guided tour.

 

On your guided tour, you will go deep underground and explore the salty underground world. The highlights of the 3.5 km (2.2 mile) route are an underground lake, a chapel and galleries with salt statues of various kinds. The top attraction is the underground Chapel of St. Kinga, where you can see chandeliers, tiled floors and walls carved in salt. Don’t miss works of art, such as a statue of ex-pope John Paul II or a salt replica of Da Vinci’s Last Supper. You will also learn about the Wieliczka Salt Mine’s history and its secrets. 

3 days in Krakow itinerary - take a day trip to the Wieliczka Salt Mine

 

TIP:

Don’t forget that you will be underground, and temperatures range between 14 and 16 degrees. Wear suitable clothing and comfortable shoes because there are 800 steps. Also, book your tickets in advance because you might end up waiting for the next available tour for a long time. 

 

GOOD TO KNOW:

There are two tours to choose from: the tourist and the miner route. We recommend you purchase the tourist route if this is your first visit to the Wieliczka Salt Mine. On this tour, you will explore the tunnels and the famous chambers you can see in all pictures on the internet. The entry fee to the Wieliczka Salt Mine for the tourist route costs 96 PLN for an adult. It is under £20, but prices vary slightly depending on the season. The tourist route is open from 9 am until 5 pm. English-speaking tours are at 9 am, 10 am, and then every 30 minutes until 4 pm.

If you choose the miners route, you will turn into novice miners. You will get a lamp, explore different chambers, and search for salt. Of course, you will perform practical mining tasks. The Miners’ route cost 116 PLN, which is about £23. The tours in English are only at 10.15 am and 2.15 pm – check the website before booking.

HOW TO GET THERE:

Catch a train from the city’s main train station, Krakow Glowny, to Wieliczka Rynek Kopalnia station. The train ride takes about 40 minutes, and after that, you need to walk about 5 minutes to the salt mine from the station. If you have a car, it is even easier as it takes only 25 minutes to get there from the city centre. Alternatively, pre-book a tour with a transport and pick up (lasts approximately 4 hours). So you can plan accordingly – if you have a flight in the early evening.

 

 

20. Kalwaria Zebrzydowska

3 days in Krakow - Kalwaria Zebrzydowska

Chances are that you have never heard about this place, but it should be on your 3 days in Krakow itinerary.

 

If you have a car and are not short of time, we also recommend exploring Kalwaria Zebrzydowska. This small town lies about a 40-minute drive from the Wieliczka Salt Mine or a 35-minute drive from the city.

Why visit it? Because Kalwaria Zebrzydowska is one of the most visited pilgrimage sites in Poland. It also has a UNESCO status because it has a breathtaking cultural landscape and spiritual significance. Maybe you don’t know, but this calvary park from the 17th century consists of 42 chapels. The locals modelled them after the places in Jerusalem and the Holy Land.

Kalwaria Zebrzydowska

There are two main paths you can visit. The locals devoted one to Jesus Christ and the second to Holy Mary. Kalwaria Zebrzydowska consists of a monastery and numerous churches, chapels and other structures. Make sure you don’t miss this less visited UNESCO site if you have spare time.

 

 

Now you know what to do in Krakow in 3 days!

3 days in Krakow itinerary

 

Where to stay in Krakow for 3 days

Not sure where to stay? If you have only 3 days in Krakow, find accommodation in the city centre. This way, you can walk almost everywhere you want, and you don’t waste much time. The Old Town and Kazimierz are centrally located districts.

During our visit, we stayed in Zwierzyniec district, which is close to Wawel Hill (about a 10-minute’ walk). We chose this district because we arrived by car and it was easier to find a parking space. Parking is not cheap in the city centre. Plus you need to pay every day except on Sunday. Hence, try to find accommodation with a parking space. Otherwise, it can be a challenge.
