Number of tourists in Krakow 2011-2019

In 2019, Kraków saw a record number of tourists, reaching an impressive 14.05 million. The increase in the number of visitors in Kraków is mainly due to the dynamic development of flight connections and improving road and rail conditions in Poland, which enhances the mobility of Polish residents.

Magic Kraków

More than 10.7 million tourists from Poland and 3.3 million abroad visited this historical city in the south of Poland in 2019. Kraków, the former capital of Poland, has a lot to offer. However, it is worth remembering that the city's attractions are not only the Wawel Castle, Market Square, and Cloth Hall. Kraków has a rich offer of places worth seeing in its surroundings. The Auschwitz camp, Wieliczka Salt Mine and Zakopane in the Tatra Mountains attract tourists, being at the same time a crucial source of information about the history and culture of Poland. Kraków also provides a rich hotel base, which is developing every year. In 2018, the most significant number of hotels were three-star.

Tourists in Poland

Poland is not only attractive to tourists from Europe but has also been noticed by tourists from Asia, the Middle East, and the USA. The improving quality of infrastructure - roads, hotels, and customer services - attract an increasing number of visitors. Among foreign tourists, citizens of Germany, Ukraine and Great Britain came to Poland most often. Germans spent over 10 billion zloty in Poland, and the average length of stay of incoming tourists was 6.2 nights in 2018
