Coach Hire & Bus Rentals For Every Occassion
The ancient city of Krakow rests on the Vistula River in the Lesser Region of Poland. It is one of the oldest and largest cities in Poland, with a population of approx. 800,000 inhabitants.
This southern city was once the country's royal capital before Warsaw took over that spot in 1596. Krakow, in fact, held the position of Crown of the Kingdom of Poland from 1038 to 1569.
Fans of myth and folklore will be happy to hear that Krakow is steeped in dragon lore, and it is believed to have been founded on the site of a dragon slaying.
According to legend, mythical King Krakus defeated a dragon that lived in a cave beneath what is now Wawel Hill. The ruler did what no other could do and slayed the beast by feeding it poisoned meat. This tale dates back as far as the 4th century with locals and travellers always commenting on the city's ancient atmosphere and mythical vibes.
Whether you believe in Krakow’s mystical tales or not, you don’t want to miss a beat when it comes to exploring all that this fascinating city has to offer.
If you're winging your way to Krakow through the air, you'll find yourself at Saint John Paul II International Airport Kraków–Balice, located 11 kilometres west of the city.

A trip to this side of the country is surely not complete without a visit to a site of saddening historical significance; a place where millions suffered but are, today, remembered and respected - Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp.
Located 50 kilometres from Krakow, Auschwitz is a full day excursion taking roughly 1.5 hours each way, and allocating 3 hours to explore the site and stop off for a traditional Polish lunch.
The museum is free to enter although there are some guided tours on offer that you’ll have to pay for. Photography is permitted throughout, but in certain areas they ask that visitors refrain from snapping as a mark of respect.
If you're in a group and need transportation to Auschwitz camp, contact RentABus Krakow and we can organise your group coach or minibus hire to get you there in comfort.
