Summer in Krakow – 5 Fun Activities for 2024

Summer in Krakow – 5 Fun Activities for 2024

As well as some great bars, clubs and nightlife, if you’re planning a trip to Krakow this summer, be sure to try out these fun activities. The city is full of lush outdoor places to explore, hang out, and soak up the vibrant, multicultural atmosphere of Krakow. Explore the city on a bike, on a boat, or on foot, wander around the city parks, or relax by a lakeside beach. Whatever you choose to do, we’re sure you’ll love your trip. 

Take a look at our five favourite summer activities below. 


  1. Evening River Cruise

With warmer and longer evenings, why not hop onto a river boat for a relaxing sightseeing cruise, where you can enjoy the sunset, and see all Krakow’s iconic landmarks from a different point of view. You’ll drift past Wawel Royal Castle, Father Bernatek’s Bridge, and more. Views will include the Old Town, and atmospheric lights, as you listen to a fascinating commentary from one of the local tour guides. This is a great thing to do on the last night of your trip, as you reflect on your highlights. 

  1. City Bike Tour

There are so many ways to sight see in Krakow – walking tours, open top buses – but one of our favourites is the bike tour. There are loads of cycling tour operators around the city, ranging from hour-long guided tours, to longer ones with various stopping points. You’ll be following a professional guide, so you can just focus on enjoying the views, without worrying about finding your way through a new place. You’ll admire stunning architecture, while your guide shares some interesting facts about the past and present of the city. 

  1. The Ring Park 

One of Krakow’s most iconic public parks known as the Planty, is a large belt of green space of over 20 hectares. It’s shaded by large, old trees, and is full of fountains, flower beds, and benches. It’s a great place to enjoy a picnic with friends, or to enjoy nature while unwinding after a wild night. In the summer, it’s full of people playing outdoor games and enjoying the atmosphere. 

  1. Lakeside Beaches 

Krakow is dotted with small lakes and reservoirs that have fresh water that’s safe to swim in. In the northern part of the city, the lakesides are well developed, and full of food vans, and the chance to hire a little sailboat or kayak. Krakow’s lakeside beaches are buzzing in the summertime, and some of them even have sand! The areas are well maintained and kept clean. 

  1. Wolski Forest

This stunning protective woodland space is great if you fancy a spot of adventure. With plenty of hills to climb, and around 35km of hiking trails, there are cycle paths, a hillside mansion, and even an old monastery. If you want to clear your head after a wild night out, or get a change of scene without leaving the city, this woodland is accessible by car, bus or bike.
