To its south lies the Tatra Mountains 62 miles away. This mountain range constitutes the natural border with Slovakia and the Czech Republic; another 143 miles to the west there is the border with Ukraine.

Once of the most famous natives of Krakow has to be the late Pope John Paul. In an effort that spanned two decades, Karol Wojtyła, cardinal archbishop of Krakow, successfully lobbied for permission to build the first churches in the new industrial suburbs. In 1978, Wojtyła was elevated to the papacy as John Paul II, the first non-Italian pope in 455 years. In the same year, UNESCO placed Krakow Old Town on the first-ever list of World Heritage Sites. Since the early 2000s many Krakow natives have come to work and live in North and Western Europe. A lot have made their permanent homes here. But they remain rightly proud of their birth place Krakow.

But to most of us Poland or Krakow in particular is not just a “friend’s” home country anymore. It is a wonderful place to visit to where marvelous hotel accommodation and exquisite self-catering accommodation can be located. If you’re a return emigrant or a first time visitor Krakow will have short stay accommodation to suit your budget.

Historically Charmed: Krakow has no doubt has had a historically charmed life. On researching the city’s past you discover that despite over the centuries having been overrun by various hordes and armies its cultural and architectural charm has remind. Its history dates back to a 4th century settlement Krakow has been fortuitously to avoid destruction. It has grown into one of the most prominent cities in Central Europe. In WW2 fortune shone down on it again as it was one of the only Polish cities not to be reduced to rubble. The period of the Soviet Union failed to leave their mark on this enchanted city centre. Because of all of this good fortune Krakow today is a magnificent piece of Eastern Europe heritage. Proof of this occurred in 1978 when UNESCO listed it on the World Heritage List, along with the nearby Wieliczka Salt Mine and only ten other places in the world.

A city of majestic architectural monuments, cobbled thoroughfares, cultural treasures, timeless courtyards, priceless artworks and legendary beer cellars and gardens, Krakow’s historic centre is the pride of Poland.

B. John Paul 11 Route: Visitors to Krakow can undertake a “John Paul II” excursion, whereby one visits various significant sites in his life.

C. Jewish Quarter: Originally Krakow’s Jewish Quarter, Kazimierz was for centuries where Catholics and Jews existed peacefully side-by-side, having a noticeably different architectural character than the main city.

D. Aushwitz is a infamous part of the history of this area to Poland. Located just over 50 kilometres west of Krakow lies the small town of Oswiecim, a place that would easily have remained in relative obscurity were it not for the Nazis’ decision to construct the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration (and later death) camp there. Since the war ended, the site has been preserved as a museum and memorial, and receives over a million visitors a year. It is a sad and emotionally trying place to visit but plays a huge part of WW2 history.
