Once the capital city of Poland, Krakow today remains the cultural center of this country. Home to nearly a quarter of Poland’s museum holdings and fine examples of a wide range of architectural styles, this city was understandably named as one of the nine European Cities of Culture in 2000.

Come visit with etr and find yourself transported to the medieval ages as you explore the Rynek Glowny (main market square), which has survived 13th century Tartar raids and the more recent ravages of World War II to remain virtually as it was in 1257. We’ll also delve into the Kazmierz district, once the center of Jewish life and made famous by Schindler’s List, which sadly shows a side of city life which did not escape this later war. Excursions outside the city limits brings us to the somber Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial as well as famous medieval Salt Mines at Wieliczka.

Krakow is a rewarding four day destination, though for those with a bit more time, we often combine with another Eastern European jewel, Prague.

Either way, all etr’s Krakow programmes fully explore both the ancient foundations of the city’s fascinating past as well as the city’s more modern history.
