Family friendly travelling in Krakow

Most popular areas in Krakow for family-friendly hotels

Krakow is a great place for a city break and you can find family-friendly accommodation right in the center of the city in Krakow’s Old Town, or Stare Miasto. Staying here will put you within easy ambling distance of many of the city’s top sights. If you’d prefer to be away from the bustle, look for a family-friendly hotel in Salwator, which is the greenest part of the city. Or you could opt to bed down in trendy Kazimierz to be close to many of the city’s most popular cafés and cultural sites.

The Holiday Inn Krakow City Centre occupies a 19th-century palace with modern extensions and it’s just a few minutes’ walk from the Main Square.

Where to find the best restaurants in Krakow

You’ll find some great family-friendly dining options in the Old Town, with many restaurants serving traditional Polish dishes. Many of the city center’s restaurants have children’s menus and are happy to welcome younger diners. Look out for traditional Polish fare such as kielbasa, a Polish smoked sausage often served with sauerkraut and, for dessert, paczki, a type doughnut often filled with jelly. Sophisticated contemporary dining is also available in the Old Town, with eateries serving dishes from Italy and France.

The most popular things to do in Krakow

A visit to Krakow Zoo, set in the Wolski Forest about a 30-minute bus journey from the city center, makes for a great day’s excursion. The zoo has a large collection of animals, including snow leopards, chimpanzees, and elephants. There’s also a mini-zoo for children where they can meet animals such as rabbits, guinea pigs, and llamas. Take your children to see Wawel Castle and the adjacent cathedral. These gorgeous buildings date back to the 14th century, and the domes and spires will remind you of fairytale castles from fiction. The Rynek Underground is a museum that’s actually under the Main Square and the streets of the Old Town. You’ll walk through tunnels where excavations have revealed sections of the Medieval city, and high-tech exhibits, including holograms, explain what life was like in old Krakow.

Best ways to get around Krakow

If your hotel is in or near Krakow’s Old Town, you can walk to many of the city’s main attractions. For journeys further afield, you can use the city’s extensive network of trams and buses. Tickets can be purchased on the tram or bus, or at kiosks near many of the stops. You can buy tickets that are valid for unlimited numbers of journeys for a set period of time, and these offer good value. Taxis are available to hail in the street, and the Uber service also operates in Krakow.
