One of Poland's oldest cities, Krakow sits at the foot of the Carpathian Mountains, its historical town center nestled on the left bank of the Vistula River.
Go for a jaunt from Krakow to Oswiecim to see Panstwowe Muzeum Auschwitz-Birkenau about 1h 10 min away. There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Wawel Cathedral, steep yourself in history at Wieliczka Salt Mine, appreciate the extensive heritage of Kazmierz The Former Jewish District, and admire the striking features of St. Mary's Basilica.

For where to stay, more things to do, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Krakow trip site .
