Poland – Krakow

Krakow Self-Guided City Walk

Krakow is the second-largest city in Poland and its origins date back to a 7th-century settlement on Wawel Hill. It was the official capital of Poland from 1038 to 1596.

The well-preserved medieval old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is completely ringed by Planty Park. The Rynek Glówny (market square) is a focus of the city, and is the site of Cloth Hall, a Renaissance-era trading outpost, and St. Mary’s Basilica, a 14th-century Gothic church.

During WWII Krakow was an important Nazi administration centre, so escaped destruction and most historic buildings remained intact. But, its Jewish population was confined to ghettos before being sent to nearby Auschwitz-Birkenau and other concentration camps.

Walk Distance 2.8km / 1.8 miles mostly flat with an easy climb up to Wawel Castle.
