No, your students haven’t travelled back in time, they’ve simply arrived in the land of Krakow. This Polish city has got the medieval vibe down, with a smattering of gothic architecture for good measure. We’ll forgive you for thinking we catapulted you straight back to the 14th Century.
Krakow was named after a mythical ruler named Krak!
Start your Polish journey the right way with a trip to the Wieliczka Salt Mine and visit the many attractions, including the infamous Chapel of St Kinga. After a morning in the mine, students will resurface for their next adventure, heading to The Kazimierz neighbourhood to take a look at the some of the magnificent Street Art.
For a taste of the real Krakow the Wawel Castle and Cathedral is a must see for any student. After a quick stop off for lunch head down to MOCAK for an art masterclass, where students can view and even take part in artist’s projects. Before going back to your accommodation take your group to the Dragon’s Den, and visit the famous cave, complete with a statue of the famous Wawel Dragon that actually breathes fire.
On your final day, take your group to the Main Market Square and treat them to a traditional breakfast. Now your group are wide awake, take them for a tour of Oskar Schindler’s Factory and learn about the famous man himself. Before heading back to the airport there’s always time for another trip.
