Exploring Krakow: Insights from our Marketing Executive

Follow Leah, Lime's Marketing Executive, as she shares her recent travels to Krakow. Discover her first-hand experiences and insights into why this beautiful city could be the next must-visit destination for your clients.

Day One:

Our Krakow journey began with excitement as we arrived in the city, ready to explore its charm. We kicked things off with a tasty brunch at Nap Nap Café, known for its mouthwatering bagels before wandering around Krakow's main square, checking out the cloth hall with its amber jewellery, and enjoying some alfresco drinks whilst admiring the architecture. For dinner, we sampled some of the traditional Polish cuisine at Morskie Oko, an underground restaurant with live music.

Day Two:

Wanting to learn more about Krakow's history, we visited The Princes Czartoryski Museum to see famous artworks like Da Vinci’s Lady with an Ermine. This really is a hidden gem and a great opportunity to see Da Vinci’s work up close without the crowds that would typically be found in the Louvre! After tucking into some delicious pizza at Pizzatopia, we then travelled to the district of Zabłocie to visit Oskar Schindler's Enamel Factory, which now houses two museums detailing the city's difficult past. That evening, we had a relaxed dinner at Molto and drinks at Bubble Toast before calling it a night.

Day Three:

An early start saw us embark on a poignant journey to Auschwitz, a sombre yet essential experience illuminating the horrors of World War II. Guided by knowledgeable experts, we gained insight into the unimaginable atrocities of the death camps. Our exploration extended to the neighbouring camp of Birkenau before concluding with a descent into the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Wieliczka Salt Mine, a mesmerising journey, 135 metres underground, through centuries-old chambers, St. Kinga’s Chapel and salt-carved sculptures.

Day Four:

On our last day, we savoured a vegan brunch at Ranny Ptaszeck before wandering around Wawel Castle. We couldn't resist trying the epic chimney cakes, so tucked in before visiting the Museum of Illusions, which holds interactive rooms and art, perfect for amusing photo opportunities! Heading back into the main square, we picked up some polish doughnuts for our onward journey and enjoyed some final drinks at BaniaLuka and the English Football Club. Though we only found Kazimierz, the old Jewish quarter, on our final day, its lively food markets left an impression, and we would definitely recommend checking them out. We ended our trip with cocktails at Trzcina, before dinner and vodka tasting at Starka, bidding farewell to Krakow with memories to cherish.
