Explore Salwator district

The greenest district of Krakow is not considered the most touristy and maybe that’s a reason in itself for you to explore it. Salwator district was based on the garden city movement of the latter half of the 19th century, while the buildings are a mix of many styles, from picturesque historicism to Art Nouveau and Modernism the wonderful houses in this neighborhood were the homes of some of the most prominent representatives of Polish science, art & culture today.


Starting from the Norbertine Monastery, founded in 1148 by the Sisters of Saint Norbert & its baroque church of St.Augustine & John the Baptist. Moving on to the Chapel of Saint Margaret, one of the 3 wooden temples left in the city & the Church of the Holy Saviour which is considered the first Catholic site in Poland, to the Villas on Ul.Gontyna, the Salwator Cemetery & the Kościuszko Mount & fortifications, and this is an area that has a lot to offer.
