5 best neighborhoods
Overcoming difficult war times and the communist regime, Krakow became a bustling city that steeped in history and culture. No wonder that its Old Town and Kazimierz District were placed on the first-ever UNESCO World Heritage List back in 1978. That is why we will start our list from these two fabulous areas.
Old Town – In Polish “Stare Miasto” is, as you can imagine, the literal heart of the city, laying in its exact center and comprising the most beautiful touristic landscapes. Here you find the Cloth Hall, the St. Mary Basilica and of course the Town Hall. Hence, if you want to live a stone throw from them, the Old Town will be the best choice. On the other hand, prepare for prices adequately higher from the rest of the city.
Kazimierz – Definitely one of the most picturesque neighborhoods in Krakow. Historically, the old Jewish quarter, right now bustiling with cafes, boutiques, galleries and bars. It is the best choice for those who want to explore the cool, bohemian vibe of the city. If you like to live close to Krakow’s nightlife, Kazimierz would be a perfect choice.
Podgórze – A bit similar to Kazimierz in terms of its architecture and picturesque landscape. It has definitely an up-and-coming vibe and the sufficient number of attractions to keep one’s busy for a whole day. If you like to be surrounded by good food and drinks and don’t mind being further from the center, it will be a good bet. Podgórze is around several minutes from Kazimierz and about 30-40 minute walk from Rynek.
Grzegórzki – not the most shiny place at the first glance, concealing however some real hidden gems! Anyone, who takes a good look around, shouldn’t have problems finding them. The area is also the home for a Botanical Garden and a nice flea market. What’s important, all in decent, budget-friendly prices. If you want to save something on accommodation and spend the money elsewhere, Grzegórzki would be perfect.
Kleparz – Located directly north of the Old Town, Kleparz allows you to be in the center of events, while still avoiding biggest crowds and highest prices. It is mostly a residential neighborhood, therefore you shall be able to find some nice AirBnB flats here.
