What you can do during weekend in Cracow
What would you do if you had only three days for visiting place which needs at least several weeks to see all attractions? There is only one way: roll your sleeves up and prepare your trip. At the beginning, you should be aware of that having only three days for such big cities like Cracow means very intensive and tiring sightseeing, but it is also a great pleasure, especially, for all trips’ freaks. However, the time you have for Cracow exploring try to use as much as it is possible. Tourists who are not prepared, they usually rather chaotically run than do sightseeing. They want to see as much as it is possible, but without planned routes, it could be quite difficult. The key point is effective time management. Of course, there are some people who are going to spend three days at the hotel and see only the Main Square, but for those who are more active and adventurous, we have prepared some interesting tours which you can follow being in Cracow. Undoubtedly, you know what are the most popular and touristic places in Cracow, because on the Internet and in various guides there is a lot of information about them. However, the route presented by us, is something less popular, but undoubtedly worth seeing as well.
We would like to show you Cracow through the prism of locals who love and know their home city pretty well. The first place on our map is Collagium Mais – the most beautiful building of the Jagiellonian University. You will be absolutely amazed at the forecourt and already restored Professor Garden. After that, you should also see another part of the University which is the forecourt of Collegium Iuridicium. The next point of our tour is St .Kazimierz Church also known as church reformers. There are plenty of beautiful churches in Cracow, but this one is unique because every year, on November 1,2 and 3, there is possibility to visit catacombs with the large number of mummies, buried there hundreds years ago. There are some legends related to this Church, so we recommend to visit it with the tour guide. The other suggested “point” is Botanical Garden. Unfortunately, it is not so popular, but really worth visiting, especially during spring when all flowers are blooming. All funs of nature should see this lovely place.
We would also like to recommend visiting one very interesting museum: Muzeum Historyczne Miasta Krakowa, Rynek Podziemny ( Historical Museum of Cracow, Underground Market). This museum provides tourists with amazing opportunity to discover Cracow from the “different perspective”. Little do people know that underground of the city is treasure trove of the Cracow’s history. All of you who are really interested in history of Cracow, should go there and discover this place. The last but not least place on our map is the Garden of Archeological Museum – one of the biggest and the most beautiful garden in Cracow. It is worth visiting not only because of its amazing design but also because this garden is a place where a large number of concerts and other cultural events take place.
