- ideas for an interesting weekend
14 Maj | 2020
You have no plans for the weekend yet? Maybe this is the perfect opportunity to get to know Cracow and its surroundings better? We have some interesting suggestions for you.
Krakow is full of unobvious places. If you haven’t visited Podgórze yet, a picturesque district of the city, it’s worth playing “detective” and trying to find the colourful stairs on Tatrzańska Street.
Podgórze is also famous for its market square and the historic Gothic St. Joseph’s Church. In Podgórze there is also a favourite mound of young Cracovians, the Krakus Mound, from where you can admire the panorama of the whole city.
2. Polish Aviators’ Park
You can also go to the Polish Aviators’ Park to relax from the hustle and bustle of the city. Here you can walk along the alleys among lush greenery, sit by the pond, and if you’re lucky, you can observe squirrels running around the alleys and trees.
3. Foodtruck tour 😊
If you’re already in the Polish Aviators’ Park and you’re a bit hungry – this is a great place to start the foodtruck tour. Near Polish Aviators’ Park and Tauron Arena you can try, among others, Asian dishes, burgers or delicious waffles called “gofry”. Another point of your route can be food trucks in the Jewish district – Kazimierz. On St. Wawrzyniec Street you can eat Cracow’s stuffed potatoes – kumpiry. You can end your culinary trip in the city center, on Krupnicza Street, where you will also find a place with delicious food, such as Spanish doughnuts or homemade ice-cream.
4. Tyniec by bike
Those who have a bit more time can go a little further. A great plan to spend the weekend is a bike tour. You can go to Tyniec to see the Benedictine Abbey or go a bit beyond Krakow – to Ojców.
5. St Mary’s Church towers
If you can’t leave Krakow, don’t worry! Although museums are closed, you can still learn about Polish history and culture. Cracow is one big monument and work of art. If you think that the Main Market Square or Wawel Castle won’t surprise you anymore, try to read Krakow’s legends. You will look at St. Mary’s Church in a completely different way when you find out that there is a story of murder connected with its towers. Maybe you will even find the place where Mr. Twardowski used to meet the devil before he had flown to the moon.
6. Nature in the city
If you prefer to be closer to nature, it is worth visiting Krakow’s botanical garden. You will find there not only Polish flowers and plants, but also those from the most exotic corners of the world. The Cracow zoo is also open all the time and if you prefer wild nature – you can go to the Wolski Forest.
