Ideas for holidays, weekends and trips in Krakow and its surroundings
Staying at the Campanile Krakow hotel is the best way to get to know this historic city and discover all that it can offer you during your visit. The market square in the centre of the old town is probably the best place to start, as here you will find quite a few of Krakow's Krakow's historic monuments, such as the 15th-century Cloth Hall and the 10th-century Church of St Wojciech, as well as St Mary's Basilica which can be found just behind Europe's biggest medieval town square. Religion is an important part of life in Krakow, a fact which is reflected in its many beautiful places of worship, such as St Mary's Basilica, or one of the city's many synagogues. The Old Synagogue, 1. 4km from your Campanile Krakow hotel, is well worth a visit, as it serves as part of the Historic Museum of Krakow, focusing specifically on the city's Jewish heritage and displaying many Jewish artefacts. Krakow's Krakow's other museums should equally be on the list of places to visit, as they contain a fine collection of European art which is housed in some stunning buildings. The National Museum holds a collection which spans from pre-history to the present day, and has a particular focus on Polish art. This is definitely the place to go to experience the culture of Poland. During your stay in Krakow, one place not to miss is Wawel, which is home to Wawel Cathedral, as well as being the residence of three dynasties of Polish monarchs. Its beautiful setting on the Vistula river make it an unforgettable place, and as well as visiting the cathedral Wawel Castle, also on the complex, contains art and historical exhibitions. A great idea for a sunny afternoon is to take a stroll in the verdant Royal Gardens. Whatever you decide to see and do while staying at the Campanile Krakow hotel, it's sure to be a memorable trip.
