Krakow

Overview

Krakow, tucked away in the south of Poland, largely escaped destruction during World War II. The atmospheric mediaeval city has been beautifully preserved; its majestic town square is the largest in Europe. This is the cultural centre of Poland, rich in museums, art galleries, concert halls and churches; as a university city it comes alive at night in cellar bars, restaurants and jazz clubs. One of the wonders of Europe. Music lovers should visit the ornate State Opera House; we can obtain tickets for you for the opera and ballet performances given here.

 

Krakow Excursions

In order to fully appreciate Krakow and its surroundings, it is essential that you speak to the Kirker Concierge to discuss the various private (and public) excursions that should be included in your itinerary. Whether it’s a walking tour of the city, a visit to the Wieliczka salt mines or Auschwitz, please call us to discuss your requirements. Prices below are based on two people sharing:

Krakow private four hour walking tour with English-speaking guide: £55 per person.
A comprehensive tour of the mediaeval city including Jagiellonian University, founded in 1364, and the central Market Square which is home to many architectural and cultural landmarks including the magnificent 14th century Cloth Hall and St. Mary’s Church, famous for its altar carving by Wit Stwosz.

Tour to the Wieliczka Salt Mines by private car: £85 per person.
A six hour tour including private car transfers and an official group tour.
