1) Think twice before renting a car in Krakow

The historical center of Krakow is quite compact. All famous historical places are within walking distance here. The traffic in Krakow is dense, and parking is always a problem, so renting a car makes no sense. If you still need transport, choose buses or trams.

2) Express train between the airport and Krakow сentral railway station is a super-fast option

Trains between the Krakow railway station and the airport run from 4:00. to midnight every 30 minutes. The journey takes only 15 minutes, while any bus or taxi ride takes about 30 minutes! The railway station at the airport, Kraków Lotnisko, is located near the main building. To get to the station, you need to go up the escalator in the arrivals hall and cross the bridge that leads directly to the platform.

3) Obwarzanek bagels are an unofficial symbol of Krakow

These bagels have been popular in Krakow since the 15th century. To taste the real obwarzanek, look for blue carts in the city centre. Bagels come with sesame seeds, poppy seeds, or salt.
