We would like to assure you that Coronavirus is not a reason to cancel a trip to our the beautiful city of Krakow (of course if you are not planning to arrive from one of the most affected by coronavirus countries).

Unfortunately, due to the government’s decision all museums, cinemas and other cultural institutions are closed for 2 weeks.

Despite this fact, there are still a lot of cool city attractions to see ( Main Square, Jewish Quarter, Kopiec Kościuszki, Zakrzówek and many others). You can enjoy walking and visiting either tourist areas or trendy hipster local spots. So, you still have an opportunity to visit local bars and pubs and try the best kraft beers 🙂 Or maybe you prefer walking and discovering local street art on old buildings?

As you are visiting a foreign city, just remember to keep some basic rules and think about your safety. Such as keeping up hygiene when washing hands or taking a shower. You will also find anti-bacteria gel stands in all public places. It seems like no reason to worry, right? 😉

Based on the government’s decision all schools, universities, museums, cinemas and other cultural institutions are closed for 2 weeks. All big outdoor and indoor events are canceled in order to combat the spread of the virus.

What about public transportation?

No worries! There is no reason to avoid public buses and trams as they have really developed structures and you can get to basically every part of the city. They are all working due to a normal schedule. But, as it also exposes You to contact with many people you should avoid touching the interior as much as you can and always disinfect Your hands.
