Visitors to Krakow enjoy enriching history and antique beauty. The Wieliczka Salt Mines is a fascinating site visited by travelers from all over the world. The Wawel Royal Castle epitomizes Poland’s regal character, while the Galicia Jewish Museum offers a necessary history of the country.
The Juliusz Slowacki Theatre puts on acclaimed theatrical performances. The Tatra Mountains are about two hours south of Krakow, lining the border between Poland and Slovakia and boasting regal hiking and nature exploration.
Krakow’s weather is on the colder side, with winter temperatures in the mid-30s and summer temperatures in the mid-70s on average. Rain is common year round, so don’t forget to bring umbrellas and wet weather clothes. Check official websites for pertinent customs information.
