It’s my day off and I did something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time… I decided to hire a bike and spend one day in Krakow exploring as much as possible. Oh, and trying Polish food of course!

In between blogging projects and press trips, I decided to spend one week in Krakow Poland on a “me” trip. Like usual, I ended up with a massive backlog of work when I arrived but I whizzed through it and spent one day exploring properly. And I decided to explore by bike!

Krakow is a beautiful city and the perfect place for a day of cycling. Cycling in Krakow is safe and easy, so it was a great way to see all the best things in Krakow in just one day.

In this Krakow vlog we visit:

Krakow’s Jewish Quarter, where we try zapiekanka – a polish sandwich – for the first time
Then we head to the suburbs of Krakow, passing churches and colourful houses on the way. After stopping for a couple of rounds of go-karting, we continue our cycling tour of Krakow and visit one of the famous mounds, Krakus. From here, we got a fantastic view of Krakow Old Town and saw just how big the city actually is! We ended the day in Krakow with a trip to Starka, a restaurant in the Jewish quarter that sells flavoured vodka and traditional Polish food. We tried pierogis (of course!), Polish Beet Soup (Barszcz Czysty Czerwony, or Borscht) and Polish Prunes Wrapped in Bacon (Sliwki w Boczku).

And that’s in for our day in Poland! I absolutely loved visiting Krakow and trying Polish food, so can’t recommend this city enough.

As always, thanks for watching and you in the next travel vlog!
