Around Kraków

Kraków is the perfect starting place for visits to Małopolska at any time of the year. Popular short trip destinations include Ojców and Pieskowa Skała, a range of Jurassic valleys, and the Niepołomicka Ancient Forest. There are also sites that – like the historic centre of Kraków – have been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List: the Salt Mine in Wieliczka and the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum. Pilgrims, in their turn, quite understandably, favour Wadowice: the hometown of St John Paul II.

Within a radius of 100km (60mi) you will find not only the Tatra Mountains and Zakopane, but also ranges that albeit less rocky are full of character: the Pieniny and the Beskidy with the very well-known resorts of Szczawnica and Krynica. Małopolska’s four national parks – Tatrzański, Pieniński, Gorczański, and Babiogórski – are certainly the most valuable natural and scenic areas of the region.
