of Divine Mercy in Lagiewniki connected also with the worship of St.
Faustyna, one of the Pope’s favourite saints. The church, which is
now one of the most important pilgrimage centres in Poland, was
consecrated by John Paul II during his last visit here.
A heartrending day to remind ourselves about mankind’s worst
years is to experience the realities of the Nazi death camps, just
outside of Krakow. At Auschwitz and the larger concentration
camp of Birkenau (Auschwitz II), our visitors follow a tour around
the prison cell blocks, the massive gas chambers, crematoriums and
the powerful exhibits of rooms filled with; hair, prosthetic body
parts, shoes and general belongings. Just e-mail or contact our

Wieliczka Salt Mines Tour is one of the most gratifying
excursions in the world. The local guides take you around the mines
and explain the features and history. It is a fantastic tour, which
takes you through parts of this enormous underground network. You
will have chance to see the amazing salt sculptures, chapels, halls

around 5 hours and is a highly recommended experience!
Poland has some of the most beautiful countryside’s to be found
in Europe. The natural beauty of Krakow’s surrounding forests,
national parks and farm lands is quite incredible. What place better
to take in this picturesque scenery, than playing 18 holes of
golf, with your family or friends. The Krakow Golf club is an
exclusive and very attractive golf club. The lush green 18 hole
course is extremely well maintained and the wonderful backdrop is
quite stunning. For keen golfers or maybe lads holidays, we can
organise a weekend golfing break for you. Included in the golf city
breaks packages, are transfers, lunch & refreshments and a further
option to try horse riding or the shooting range.
All terrain vehicles (ATVs) offer a unique freedom to
explore, the endless joys of Poland’s scenic playground. These
monster quad bikes are fully automatic, so no experience is needed;
only common sense and awareness is required. The off-road
capabilities of ATVs are awesome, guaranteeing a white knuckle ride
you’ll never forget. Quad biking is a great idea for a Krakow stag
weekend, perfect for lads sport tours to Poland. Do something
completely different on your city break, and enjoy a adventure
Take on Poland’s toughest terrains, dense forests and muddy
marshlands, on a 4 X 4 off-road Jeep adventure. These monster
4-wheel drive vehicles are ideal for city break guests that enjoy
high adrenaline sports and love the thrill of a bumpy jeep ride. Our
drivers will have you screaming with joy, as you dip down
embankments, narrowly miss trees and cut through mud streams &
rivers. For some holiday makers this could be hell on earth, but for
adrenaline junkies & typical men on stag nights in Krakow, this
off-road adventure is the total package. We offer Jeep packages that
include a chance to drive an old Soviet 4x4 beast and someone to
film the whole day on DVD.
Go-karting can be either be indoor or outdoor in Krakow
and has to be one of the most fun sporting activities you can try,
especially with a group of friends. Although, traditionally very
popular amongst Krakow stag weekends, go karts are fun for families
and generally any city break guest that enjoys the rush of speed.
The karting centres are approximately only 20 minutes from the city
centre of Cracow, so why not break your day of sight seeing with a
little bit of go-karting action.
There are two professional football teams residing in
Krakow. Cracovia is the oldest football team and was famously
supported by the late Pope Paul II. The rival club to Cracovia is
Wisla, which is one of the best teams in their top football
division. Book football tickets through Vamos Travel to see a match.
It’s a great idea for a lad holidays, family day out and part of
your sports tours to Poland.
Shopping in Cracow is very diverse and will keep the
busiest shopper entertained throughout a weekend breaks holiday. For
souvenirs, local produce and designer boutiques, then start in the
old town, especially in the main market square. We recommend you try
Cloth Hall in the middle of Rynek Glowny, to find reasonably priced
amber jewellery and other Krakow city breaks gifts. Other busy
shopping streets to investigate should be, Florianska, Grodzka and
Szewska streets. Cracow’s biggest flea market is situated at plac
Nowy Kazimierz and the oldest Polish market is found at Rynek
Kleparski. Like Warsaw, Cracow locals have a passion for large
shopping centres, one of the bigger malls is the Plaza, which has
over 100 shops, cinema, bowling and a fantasy park. The great aspect
of shopping in Krakow, is that many of the chic shops and art houses
occupy superb historical buildings, so even city breaks guests who
just want to flex there retail muscle, will actually be getting a
dose of culture after all.
Hardcore Shooting is one of the most exhilarating
experiences, especially for those crazy stags. You can incorporate this leisure break
activity to your holiday in Poland. Either way, experiencing the
thrill of shooting real fire arms, in a safe & controlled
environment is certainly something we’d recommend trying, during a
short break holiday in Krakow. There are many different types of
fire arms to try, from: pump action shot guns to automatic hand
guns. Competitions can be organised and full English instruction is
given. Take time out from your Cracow weekend breaks and have a
blast!!! We organise special deals for stag do's, family groups,
brilliant weekends and adventure parties.
Cracow zoo opened in 1929, in the middle of the woodland
park known as the Las Wolski or Park Miejski, which covers 500
hectares, 10 km to the west of Central Cracow. A magnificent
panoramic view can be had of the city and the picturesque
surrounding Jurassic hills. The Zoo is home to over 1400 animals,
representing 278 species. Cracow Zoo's most interesting animals
include a herd of Pygmy Hippopotamus, which are nearly extinct.
Weekend break explorers will find rare birds, reptiles, wild cats
and many other exotic animals.
The Aqua Park has always been a big hit with locals but
now it has become a firm favourite with foreigners for a fun
alternative to touring around museums and monuments. The Aqua Park
has hot tubs, water slides and a massive swimming area. This could
be the haven you might require, to recover from those hen & stag do nights in
Krakow. Get rid of those hangover blues and get revitalized.
