Weekend Breaks to Krakow
Poland’s second biggest city is a wonderful blend of the old and new, making Krakow a great group holiday destination that has something for everyone. For a weekend break from the UK it’s ideal, with flights taking as little as 2.5 hours.
What to See in Krakow
There is plenty to see if you’re into art or history. Take a trip to the National Museum - just one of about 30 museums in the city - and you’ll find 780,000 pieces to discover. The Polish Aviation Museum is well worth a visit too, with exhibits including a replica of the plane that Louis Blériot piloted on the first cross-Channel flight in 1909. On your weekend away or longer trip you can of course simply let yourself wander through the city streets and squares, taking in the Gothic and Renaissance architecture. The Old Town includes Rynek Główny (Europe’s largest market square), while the Western Quarter has a very modern and lively feel about it. And you really mustn’t miss out on the glorious delights of Wawel Castle.
Bars, clubs and restaurants are there in abundance, so stag weekends and hen weekends will feel well catered for. When it comes to eating out, from the friendly Trezo Restauracja to the luxurious Leonardo Ristorante, you are sure to fall in love with Polish cuisine. And don’t forget the awesome bakeries serving up Poland’s famous cakes and pastries. Meanwhile there are bars and clubs for everyone, whether it’s a quiet traditional place such as Esze in Kazimierz (the historic Jewish district) or one of the hundreds of bars aimed more at local people and tourists out for a lively night.
When people get together for group holidays abroad they also want great accommodation. Hotels in Krakow are typically very friendly and welcoming, with staff and management who understand the needs of group holidays, from stag and hen weekends to corporate parties. Hotels such as the opulent Copernicus might be too expensive for most of us, but places like the Aparthotel Spatz and Queen Boutique are to a high standard but much more affordable.
