The long May weekend is coming. Perhaps, you will have an opportunity to get to know Cracow and its surroundings better. If you don't have any plans yet how to spend your May weekend, we have some interesting ideas for you.
Krakow is full of unobvious places. If you haven't visited Podgórze, 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 vegetation, sit by the pond, and if you're lucky, you can also 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 artisanal ice-cream.
4. Tyniec by bike
Those who have a little more time can go a little further. A great plan to spend the May weekend is a bike tour. You can go to Tyniec to see the Benedictine Abbey or go a bit beyond Krakow - to Ojców.
