Having stayed in Krakow for several times, we now stay outside the city. Some 15 tramstops in fact. This card was invaluable for the amount of travel we did. The places of interest we visited were almost all free because of this card. You have to know what you plan to do and visit before you decide to purchase this card. We purchased the 3 day city with transport but there several different cards available.

The KrakowCard is such a great concept. Once we arrived in Krakow the cards were easy to pick up from central Krakow. You can determine there and then when you want the card to be valid from. A great selection of attractions available and the use of the tram is priceless.

Easy to use and great benefit when using the trams & buses. Good value when visiting the many attractions.

Excellent, cheap way of visiting lots of interesting places

It useful for free museums and unlimited transport!
