City breaks in Krakow

Book a short stay or weekend break in this historic Polish city

There's a fairytale quality to Kraków that makes it a charming destination at any time of year. With soaring church spires, cobbled streets and a castle perched on a hill overlooking the Vistula River, the historic city center is certainly picturesque. It’s also compact – so getting a sense of the city is easy, even during a short stay. This makes Kraków the ideal destination for a city break or weekend getaway.

The past is always present in Kraków, from the romance of medieval legends to the tragedy of the Holocaust, and history buffs will find numerous world-class museums and attractions that explore this heritage. However, Poland's 2nd-largest city and former royal capital is also a thriving, modern destination, with a young, hip student population and plenty of activities for visitors.

You'll find an excellent selection of trendy restaurants, bars and cafés, particularly in the Old Town and the former Jewish Quarter of Kazimierz – which together are a listed UNESCO World Heritage Site – as well as cool galleries, stylish boutiques and beautiful parks throughout the city.

By staying in a city-center location like the Radisson Blu Hotel in Kraków, you'll have great shopping, lively nightlife, stunning architecture and historic sites right on your doorstep. It's the perfect way to get the most out of your weekend break; save the time and money you would normally spend on transport, and focus on discovering this atmospheric city.
