Visiting Krakow Throughout the Year…

  • Early March does still feel like the end of winter, but the temperature does increase as the month goes by. There is little rain at this time. April in Krakow is slowly warming up and the sunshine hours are on the increase
  • Days are warmer and warmer in May, and sometimes very sunny. It’s one of the best months for visiting as tourist numbers are still quite low and prices are reasonable
  • June, July and August are perfect months to visit Krakow. It’s very warm (sometimes beyond 30 celsius), days are the longest and the probability of the rain is reasonably low. There are more tourists at this time though and prices are at their peak, but there are plenty of festivals to take in
  • September is a good time to visit – it’s no longer as crowded and the weather is quite good for sightseeing. You can feel that autumn is coming but it’s not so cold just yet. Temperatures won’t reach much higher that 19 celcius, but there’s still plenty of sunshine. October is when the real autumn starts. November is usually avoidable as it gets dark rather early and the weather can be unpredictable
  • Krakow may see snow in December and the other winter months of January and February. It’s regularly down to -4°C during the night time. The festive period is however a magical time to enjoy the Christmas markets and low prices on accommodation
