Autumn is an ideal season for those who do not like crowds and high temperatures. In the summer, thousands of tourists stroll along the streets of Krakow. There are definitely fewer of them now, so the lovers of slow-pace sightseeing and quiet walks in the city will feel more at ease. Museums and other attractions are no longer overcrowded, and one does not have to wait in long queues for the tickets to the popular underground exhibition in the Main Square, or to worry about the reservation of a table for dinner in one of the Old Town restaurants. Such places as Schindler’s Factory, the Polish Aviation Museum and the Czartoryski Museum are certainly worth a visit. A visit to the Royal Castle on Wawel Hill is also a must.
Some sunshine is still likely to make your autumnal walks more pleasant. Our city boasts a number of beautiful parks whose magic diversity of colors is particularly enchanting in the autumn. On a sunny day, a walk in the Planty Park offers a perfect chance to get hold of your camera, and take a number of memorable photos. In order to be able fully to appreciate the wonderful palette of colors, one should not only go to the Planty Park or to Wawel Castle, but also to Kościuszko’s Mound which offers truly splendid and unforgettable, panoramic views of the city. The Vistula River banks also constitute an excellent route for a stroll featuring a superb view of the Castle. The so-called Polish golden autumn can also be enjoyed during the walks to the prehistoric Krakus Mound and around the Błonia meadow.
At this time of the year, the mysterious charm of the District of Kazimierz is even more enhanced. Lovely, tiny streets of the Jewish quarter invite you to take a walk and to trace the history of old Krakow. In every nook and cranny, you will find charming cafes, restaurants and eateries where you can stop for a cup of warming tea. Also one should not forget about the famous Cracovian “zapiekanka” (a hot baguette sandwich) in Plac Nowy.
Should you decide that there are no more attractions in Krakow (is it possible at all?) – there is always an option of an unforgettable trip to Wieliczka. The salt mine is bound to impress you beyond your expectations. It is one of the most beautiful places in Poland, and maybe even in Europe, so when you are in Krakow, you should find enough time for a visit to this unique place. Getting the tickets for a tour of the mine is definitely easier now than in the summer season. Please take it from us that visiting Wieliczka will be a very special experience.
