1. Eat Zapiekanka in the Jewish Quarter

Famous in Kraków best take out food. Fast and filling but also delicious! Best place to buy it? Okrąglak on Plac Nowy Square! It is a big round building in the centre of the district. Around it  you can dig through stuff selled on the flea market or relax in Alchemia on the corner – one of the most famous bars in Kraków.

2. Learn about the city! Join FREE WALKING TOUR

Are you a kind of tourist that needs to know everything? Or just likes to get some basic information and interesting facts about the city? Join a free walking tour. It is a perfect way to get to know the place better but at the same time it is not a never-ending and boring pilgrimage around the historical centre. The tour takes two hours and meeting point is always in front of St. Mary’s Church on the Main Square. It goes every single day: 10:30am around the Old Town and 2pm around the Jewish Quarter. If you liked it, please leave a small tip for the guide 😉

3. Buy multiple beers or shots in Pijalnia

We have a few bars in Kraków (occupied by students and tourists almost all the time) where a price for a beer or a shot is excatly 4,00PLN. It is a perfect pre-drink/pre-lush /pre-game place where you can put yourself into a good mood before fancier and of course way more expensive club. Try different kinds of vodka or some local shots such as a mad dog – vodka with raspberry juice and tabasco – amazing combination!

4. Buy obwarzanek just don’t share it with the peguins!

Obwarzanek is a typical for Kraków kind of a bread roll. It is very similar to a bagel but it is somewhat bigger and has a wider hole. You can buy it almost on every corner while walking through the Old Town.

5. Go on a nice long walk and visit Kościuszki Mound

A little bit of the city centre there is an amazing place to enjoy rollerskating, jogging or cycking aroun błonia – big park in Kraków. Very close to it you can climb on the most famous mound in Kraków – Kościuszki Mound. It is a perfect overlook point for the city and entrance is only 10,00PLN. For free you can visit another mound in Kraków – Krakus Mound. Especially during night you can admire from there a spectacular Kraków panorama.
