Your Guided Group Holiday To Krakow

Take a city break with us and discover the Christmas markets of Krakow on this 3-night guided holiday. Krakow is a city alive with character and soul. As the former national capital of Poland, the city has a history encompassing more than a thousand years and is still a leading cultural centre. During our stay, we’ll enjoy a walking tour of the city that will take us to highlights like St. Mary's Church, one of the best examples of Polish Gothic architecture; the Wawel Cathedral, home to an impressive bell tower that boasts the 13 tonne Sigismund Bell; and the Royal Tombs, the final resting place of 10 Polish kings. We’ll also visit Zakopane, resort town located in the Tatrzanski National Park, which is renowned for its wooden architecture. We’ll also have plenty of leisure time to wander the pretty streets, visit local cafés and museums or shop for presents in the glittering Christmas Markets.

*Please consider that some locations featured on this holiday will involve walking on uneven surfaces, hills and steps. We invite you to contact us for any additional details required.
