Your Guided Group Holiday To Krakow 

Join us to explore the perfect combination of bustling, modern city and medieval heritage on this 4-night short break to Krakow. As Poland’s former national capital, the city has a history encompassing more than a thousand years and still remains a leading cultural centre. On this holiday, we’ll enjoy a walking tour of the city’s main highlights including stops at St. Mary's Church, the Wawel Cathedral (known for the giant sized 13 tonne Sigismund Bell that resides in its bell tower), and the Royal Tombs, the final resting place of 10 Polish kings. We’ll also take a full day excursion to Zakopane, a resort town at the foot of the Tatra Mountains. Here, we’ll explore the town’s charming centre with a local guide and take a short funicular ride to the top of Gubalowka hill, to enjoy the panoramic views of the countryside.
