Krakow Tour

Krakow Tour Overview

Before Krakow was the second largest city in Poland and a European center for culture cultural, it was a small Stone Age hamlet overlooking the Vistula River. In the hundreds of years since the Stone Age, Krakow has transformed into a thriving city of eight million people.

Krakow dates back to the 7th century. From 1038 to 1569 it was the capital of the Crown of the Kingdom of Poland. Krakow’s time as a royal capital is on full display for visitors. Wander the castle grounds and imagine life as a Polish king or queen.

In more recent history, Krakow has experienced great hardships. It was the invasion of Poland that started World War II, and the country was under Nazi control until 1945. Visitors can learn more about this dark chapter in Poland’s history by traveling to Auschwitz, a museum and memorial dedicated to victims on the Holocaust.

One of the few Polish cities to escape World War II destruction, Krakow is a historical and cultural gem. A shining example of how to blend past and present, the city has centuries of history, a vibrant nightlife and restaurant scene, beautiful scenery, and the largest and liveliest main square in Europe.
