Krakow is nowadays a well-renowned holiday destination. At the height of summer, Poland’s fourth biggest town is packed with tourists and numerous pavement cafés that seem to takeover every cobble of the central plaza. Out of season, late at night or even in the first slivers of morning light, it is easy to see why so many people book cheap Krakow flights every year. This enchanting town, located in the southeast of the country, between the Jura uplands and the Tatra Mountains, on the banks of the Wisla River, has one of the best-maintained medieval city centres in Europe. Lots of churches cover nearly every architectural era and are bordered by monasteries and abbeys – walking through the Old Town roads is like stepping back in the past.
The city has mostly been left intact since the Tartar raids of the thirteenth century, which accounts for the largely pristine Krakow Old Town – now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Laid out in 1257, the Main Market Square is one of the biggest medieval market plazas in Europe – as well as a remarkable set piece fronted by graceful façades.

The enormous colossus of Wawel Hill, to the south, is home to Wawel Castle, the seat of Polish kings from the eleventh to the early seventeenth century. It was at this place, in 1000 AD, that the bishopric of Cracow was established and the Cathedral is still the spiritual home of Poland.
