Tourist routes in the vicinity of Cracow, which must be seen!

Krakow is mainly associated with Sukiennice (the Cloth Hall), Wawel and the Old Town. Nevertheless, we make a huge mistake, limiting sightseeing only to these places. Of course, if you are visiting the royal city for the first time, you must visit all of these places. Nevertheless, it is worth knowing in depth not only the city itself but also its surroundings, because there are many tourist routes consisting of the most beautiful, picturesque landscapes. Their lengths are adapted to different levels: you can easily find something for beginners, families with children, as well as for experienced travellers. There are also many different ways to explore these routes, for instance, one of the routes is typically devoted to cycling, and the other is a walking route.

A must-see in Małopolska Province: salt mine in Wieliczka

The places with unflagging popularity are the salt mines near Krakow, including Wieliczka. Many visitors set up long queues for the purchase of tickets, and the rich offer addressed to tourists conquers the hearts of subsequent visitors. There is also a special route for children so that they can also visit this magical place. Foreign tourists, right after Wawel also inquire about the salt mines, that’s why an efficient transport of buses from the very heart of the city straight to Wieliczka is organized.

Not only Krakow

Beautiful, picturesque submontane landscapes, as well as the Krakow-Częstochowa Upland, will encourage you to actively spend your time outdoors. It is a fantastic way to relax after a busy week. In addition, we take care of our health by burning unnecessary calories during the movement. One could say that it is the perfect combination of something beneficial with something that looks good all in one.

The most interesting tourist routes in the vicinity of Krakow:

  1. Black Bolechowice Trail – Bolechowicka Valley

It is a real treat for nature enthusiasts. On this trail, we can admire and learn about the most beautiful rock relics in Poland. Here one can observe calcium rocks, as well as what has remained after the result of exploitation in external conditions for thousands of years. Its total length is only 900 meters, and this is another reason for you to go there. It is the perfect place for a Sunday trip or relaxation after a hard week at work.

  1. Storks’ Nests Trail

A treat for people who love birds. It covers a distance of 14.7 kilometres, and it takes an average of one hour and forty minutes if we go on foot. There are numerous stork nests that we pass along the way during sightseeing, and hence its name. During May and August, storks can also be found on nearby meadows, walking in search of food, or the youngsters learning to fly. It can be said the storks act as guides and hosts here. The trail starts in the parking lot in Wołowice. Along the way, we also have numerous chapels and a manor house that is also worth visiting.

  1. Radziszów Wilderness

It is a short, just 1.7 km section of the road connecting other routes and mainly intended to facilitate access to Skawina. Nevertheless, it is worth it to take a moment to visit the beautiful manor house of Dzieduszycki family in Radziszów (it is a starting point of the trail). It stretches along Szkolna St., Wspólna, Zadworze Górne and Jagodowa st.

  1. Blue Birch Cycling Trail

An excellent choice for people who like to spend time actively on a bicycle. The trail is 20.1 kilometres long, so it is not one of the shortest ones, which is worth bearing in mind if you do not have the cycling experience. This is a non-return trail. The trail starts and ends next to the School building in Brzezie. When taking this trail, we can visit places such as the Kluczwody Valley, Karniów Mountains, Kobylańska Valley as well as the Bolechowice Gorge.
