Guests need only make the brief journey via bus, taxi or on foot to Krakow’s historic city centre where most of the city’s greatest cultural landmarks can be found. Krakow’s most notable tourist area is the Royal Road and its surroundings streets. Starting at what is deemed to be Krakow’s heart, the Main Square, the promenade continues down to arguably the most iconic building in Poland, the Wawel Castle. Home to Poland’s ruling royal family for centuries, the gothic style castle is now a premier art museum housing works by a host of famous renaissance artists. Also flanking the Royal Road are a selection of other historical attractions that tourists can admire at their leisure, including St Florian’s Church, the Barbakan, Wawel Cathedral and Florian’s Gate.

Around this central area there are a wide variety of eateries and restaurants, spanning from fine-dining establishments to family-run bistros serving authentic Polish cuisine. There is also plenty of choice in terms of evening entertainment venues, including typical beer halls, vodka bars and upmarket cocktail lounges perfect for those wanting to dance the night away.

From the hotel premises it is possible to book organised tours to some famous tourist attractions located around the outskirts of Krakow. Each year millions of tourists pay a visit to the notorious Nazi concentration camp of Auschwitz which orchestrated the death of more than 1 million Jews during WWII. Now a UNESCO World Heritage site, the camp which has now been transformed into a museum is open for visitors to pay their respects and learn more about the atrocities committed by the Nazis during their occupation of Poland. Also lying within the Krakow metropolitan area is the famous Wieliczka Salt Mine, the largest salt mine in Europe still in operation. Visitors are invited to marvel at the statues, chapels and even an entire cathedral sculpted from rock salt – there is even a function chamber carved out of the mine for private parties.
