A mine of information

A mine of information

Descend into Krakow’s hidden gem, Wieliczka Mine. The amazing underground cave system is forged from salt, making it all the more spectacular. You can buy jewellery and small souvenirs, explore at your leisure, and even get hitched if you’re looking for a memorable venue!

A night on the town

If you’d rather sit down to a traditional meal, a filling plate of Bigos is never far away, and you’ll find festive goodies to sink your teeth into at the markets. Why not stop out and fully rejuvenate? Krakow is full of pint-pulling pubs and bright bars – you’ll even find some in cellars!

Christmas contest

Christmas contest

Krakow has a tradition of hosting a nativity scene competition. Contestants construct colourful interpretations complete with churches, or szopki, and other architecture you’ll find in the city. It’s a gorgeous display of Christmas spirit, and people flock from all around to see the delicate pieces.

Walk along the bridge

Walk along the bridge

In the rich night-time darkness, all lit up with a Christmassy glow, potter over to Father Bernard’s Footbridge. As you cross the Vistula River, you’ll be surrounded by stunning views as well as lock-embellished railings. You’ve seen them in Paris, now hook one to a piece of Krakow and truly feel part of the special city.

Rynek Glowny Market (Nov - Dec)*

Rynek Glowny Market (Nov - Dec)*

Krakow’s Main Square gets dressed up in its fanciest festive sparkle to open its doors to Christmassy stalls. You’ll find all kinds of goods, including jewellery, toys, tablecloths and more, all wrapped up in glittering lights. You can even tuck into sweets, spiced nuts and gingerbread.

War-time remnants

War-time remnants

Take some time away from the festivities to learn about the treatment of the Jewish community over in Kazimierz. You’ll find many museums and plaques outlining the chilling events endured in Krakow, while a visit to Oskar Schindler’s Factory and Auschwitz – albeit a little further out – is a must.
