Spend the first day of your short stay at our Campanile hotels in Krakow visiting the royal Wawel Castle, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, where Polish General Pilsudski is buried. The second day can be dedicated to visiting the Old Town (the stare miasto) and a wander in Krakow's main market (known as the "Grand Place"), the largest medieval square in Europe. Wawel Cathedral (or the basilica-cathedral of Saints Stanislas and Wenceslas), of Gothic style, is also worth a look.
Krakow, a thousand-year-old city with an intact architectural heritage, has many tourist delights. Visit Kazimierz, the Jewish quarter, and be sure to take a tour of the famous French-style bar-restaurant run by Polish lovers of France. There you will see some photos of Serge Gainsbourg and can buy French newspapers. Also pass by the gates of the Jagellonne University, the oldest in the country, and admire the colorful facades of the old town, before enjoying a pretzel or an ice-cream.
The old town, Wawel Castle and the Krakow National Museum promise family outings as pleasant as they are instructive. The linen hall, a particularly representative monument to Krakow’s typical architecture, is also a must-see. Don’t forget either to visit the banks of the Vistule, at the foot of the castle, where you can buy ice-creams and wooden toys and which offers a superb panorama over the city In the evening, you can climb to the higher part of Krakow by following the cobbled streets and admire the sun setting over the castle; then enjoy a good meal in a local restaurant before retreating to your Campanile hotel.
