A new fight brings the medieval Polish city of Kraków closer than ever

Flying into Pole position

With its medieval architecture, a long history riddled with drama and a city-wide predilection for a good (possibly vodka-fuelled) party, Kraków has long been on the radar as one of Europe’s most intriguing destinations.

Begin in the Unesco-listed Old Town, where cobbled lanes run past soaring churches, historic buildings and museums to Rynek Główny, the largest medieval square in Europe.
