Camelot cafe is located in the very center of Kraków. It has a quaint and cozy interior, thirteenth-century cellars, unique decor, and a lovely open terrace. Their «Sernik» traditional Polish cheesecake is very delicious! I also recommend coming here for breakfast, lunch or dinner – you will absolutely enjoy the food!
What about a little bit of culture? The Princes Czartoryski Museum is one of the oldest museums in Poland. The Museum officially opened in 1878. The exhibition includes works of painting, sculpture, crafts, military and applied art representing the history of Poland. The most renowned painting at the Museum is one of Leonardo da Vinci’s best-known works, the Lady with an Ermine. Good to know: Every Tuesday entrance is free for the permanent exhibition. After your visit, you can enjoy coffee and cakes at lovely Leonardo cafe inside the museum!
Wawel Royal Castle is one of the top highlights in Kraków. Standing on the hill next to the Vistula river, the castle’s beginnings date back to the 11th century. Since that time, it has been rebuilt several times. The castle grounds are very big, picturesque and beautiful, with a lot of things to see, so you’ll need at least a couple of hours for a proper visit.
Pino River restaurant is located on the riverside. Here you can enjoy beautiful views and Mediterranean cuisine with a local twist: pasta, pizza or burgers, fish and meat.
Sky bar is definitely one of the best seasonal spots in the Old Town. It is located on the top floor of the famous Stary Hotel. Here you can enjoy the unique views and of course your favorite drinks.
Good Lood is definitely one of the best ice cream parlors. They offer a mouth-watering selection of flavours and they are adding new ones every day!
Kazimierz Kazimierz is the former Jewish quarter and it’s completely different from the Old Town. This neighbourhood has its own unique bohemian character. It’s home to numerous cozy cafes, antique & vintage shops, cobblestone streets and monuments of Jewish culture. Its charm is magnetic!
Plac Nowy Flea Market in Kazimierz is one of the most popular flea markets in Kraków, located on Plac Nowy square-right in the middle of Kazimierz. It’s better to visit on Saturday or Sunday mornings to find a lot of antiques: jewelry, books, ceramics , clothes and more.
Another restaurant we recommend is the Once upon a time in Kazimierz Restaurant. It offers the chance to travel back in time to the old Jewish traditions in Krakow. The interior here is absolutely unique: the place is filled with old, cracking furniture, vintage posters, centuries-old equipment, suitcases, musical instruments, retro clothes, and flickering candles on every table. Here you can order some traditional Jewish or Polish cuisine: We chose chicken with potatoes and salad as well as dumplings stuffed with meat.
Hala Forum: lounge chairs, sand, good music, the coolest street food, drinks & beautiful views! People come here to relax, unwind, meet with friends and enjoy the amazing atmosphere!
We hope you will enjoy your stay in Krakow!
