Itinerary for Krakow City Break

Krakow City Break

Krakow is one of the most popular city break destinations in Europe... it has everything you need for a fabulous short break. Stay in a handpicked hotel tucked away in the old town, meet your local guide who will unlock the secrets of the city with you, and share their favourite places to eat & drink, sharing stories about life in Krakow as you explore. Venture out of Krakow on a day trip, either to the infamous Auschwitz-Birkenau camp, to the awesome Wieliczka salt mines, to Zalipie painted houses, or to Zakopane in the mountains - all of these make wonderful days out, full of adventure in the surrounding Polish countryside and culture.

3 nights * Old town handpicked hotel * Private transfers * Private tours & day trips * Tailored to suit you * From EUR pp

Day 1 - Arrival to Krakow

Private transfer from Krakow airport to your old town hotel.

Our driver will meet you in the arrivals hall and drive you to your hotel (they will be holding a sign with your name on it). Welcome to Krakow! Depending on your flight time, we can arrange your walking tour today, or reserve a table at a recommended local restaurant for your first evening of Krakow by night.


Day 2 - Krakow

Krakow Old Town Walking Tour (3 Hours)

Our local guide will meet you in your hotel reception. Strolling through the Old Town of Krakow we introduce you to our beautiful city of Krakow. Our local guide will get you acquainted with the old town, show you the main sights and welcome you with some stories about Krakow and what it is like living here. We are very happy for you to tell us your interests and what you would like to discover and experience during your stay in Krakow, then we can recommend THE places you should visit during your stay. We look forward to sharing our city with you.


    
Day 3 - Krakow

Day trip out of town

There are plenty of worthy places to choose from... our driver-guide will pick you up from your hotel, take you out for the day, and return you to Krakow in time to enjoy another evening in the old town.

Auschwitz - Birkenau Group Guided Tour
Auschwitz-Birkenau is the largest concentration and extermination camp built by the Nazis during WWII and a must-see for those who have not been before.

Wielizcka Salt Mines
The salt mines are an awesome attraction. Somehow, the mundane name of salt mines does not prepare you for what you will witness. They are an extraordinary feat of human creativity and strength.

Zalipie painted houses
Widely known as the prettiest village in Poland, Zalipie is delightful and charming, full of cheer. Combine a visit to the village with a nice local lunch, or a visit to a crafts workshop and it is a day full of local rural tradition.

Zakopane
You can do Zakopane as a day trip from Krakow, it's a whirlwind summary of this beautiful mountain resort - but well worth it. 

Talk to us about your interest, and we can tailor your sightseeing to suit you!



 Day 4 - End of the tour

Private transfer from your hotel to Krakow airport.

Our driver will pick you up from your hotel and drive you to the airport for your flight home.

EVERYWHERE WE WENT WE WERE THANKED FOR SUPPORTING POLAND BY NOT CANCELLING OUR TRAVEL

We had a wonderful holiday and we felt so amazingly welcome. As you know, with the impact of the current war in Ukraine, the country is under great financial pressure and tourist industry is suffering. Everywhere we went we were thanked for supporting Poland by not cancelling our travel. We’ve got to say the whole sordid business had little impact on our holiday. We felt very safe, and it was heartwarming to see firsthand how the Polish nation has risen to the challenge and helped the Ukrainians. As we’ve said we had a fantastic time and really enjoyed all that we saw. Things we’d change are few which show how good the itinerary was that you and the team had organised for us. Absolutely loved the extra trips that you had suggested. It’s a given that we’d be happy to recommend your company to anyone (and have done so on numerous occasions already).

POLAND PRIVATE TOUR, MR & MRS O, APRIL 22


THE BEST CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY EXPERIENCE IN POLAND

We’ve just returned from the best Christmas holiday experience in Poland…. All organised by Sally and team from Baltic Holidays… Where do I begin???? The whole trip was organised by Sally… flights, transport, hotels, food, restaurants, trips and lots lots more. It was Christmas Wonderland. Our rooms were amazing and well equipped, warm and comfortable. The hotel is next to the entrance to the forest/mountains… so lovely snowy walks and sledging.We walked into Zakopane, skied, sledged and so so much more.I can’t explain in words how grateful I am for this amazing holiday that Sally organised for Fred, Freya,Gaia and myself.I am still quite emotional about how amazing the experience was, especially when the pandemic seemed to be against us travelling.Regarding covid… we felt safe and at no risk… and we have returned home to receive negative PCR tests.All I can say is definitely give Baltic Holidays a call and book a holiday asap…. You deserve it!!!!

ALTOGETHER A GREAT SUCCESS.

Dear Jurga and Sally, Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our trip to Poland. Everything went well and the hotels were excellent. We were particularly pleased with our two drivers/guides who were knowledgeable, friendly and extremely helpful. Altogether a great success. Thank you for organising it so efficiently.

TAILOR-MADE PRIVATE TOUR OF POLAND, THE GRINKES, SEPTEMBER 2019


WITHOUT DOUBT THE FINEST TOUR COMPANY I HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED

They put together an amazing, personalized 1 month tour of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. They drove me to the capitals of each and also to 3 of their incredible beach resorts on the Baltic Sea. There were a lot of moving parts on this tour and it ran like clockwork and any minor hiccup was remedied immediately. I have traveled the world and they are without doubt the finest tour company I have ever encountered and I will be using them soon for a tour of Russia and Ukraine. The staff is terrific and great fun to work with. They go way out of their way to create a flawless experience. Kudos to Jurga, Sarah and Linas for all their amazing work and kindness. If you want to tour the Baltic States, make sure your first call is to Baltic Holidays!!
