Krakow is a year-round city. Everything is open, but not crowded, so it is worth taking advantage of the time when there are fewer tourists to discover the charm of a more intimate Krakow and feel its unique atmosphere walking along the empty streets of the old city.
Krakow offers a lot of attractions available also in winter. Depending on your preferences, you can plan a very active day full of new experiences or take care of a quiet time full of rest and relaxation. The city is undoubtedly a very climatic place, so it is worth exploring its charms also in winter days. You can not go indifferently by the Christmas Market, which takes place on the Main Square.
Winter visitors will be pleased to know that Krakow is already preparing for its Christmas traditions. As always, one of the key attractions is the Krakow Christmas Market, which occupies most of the Market Square. The big Christmas Market is usually erected in early December and lasts even a little into January, although undoubtedly the best atmosphere is there in the week before Christmas.
If you like short getaways and are looking for an urban vibe with a balanced mix of culture, nightlife and charming surroundings, Krakow is the perfect example. Although some traces of the city's history are well-preserved here, the former capital of Poland is also the site of a thriving present.
