Krakow's Tourist Offices and Their Services

Visitors to Krakow can pick and choose the city’s various tourist offices, sometimes situated a stone’s throw away from one another. They are run either by the Krakow municipality’s official Festival Bureau or by private businesses or by tourist organizations. Their staff speak at least English and offer general tourist information about Krakow, usually reliable and up-to-date.

Most of Krakow’s ‘tourist information centers’ also sell guidebooks and other publications as well as distribute free printed matter. The vast bulk of maps, leaflets, and brochures available free of charge consist in adverts but some also include useful if rudimentary contents (unfortunately, with editorial prowess not a priority, the complimentary stuff may often mislead too). At the same time quality maps and guides cost a few euro. As a rule, private tourist offices offer a better choice of publications than the municipal network of information centers whose stocks are restricted to its own products and little else.

The Krakow tourist offices usually provide a range of services, including such as room finding and ticket booking and sale. Plus they often act as vendors of sightseeing guided city tours and day trips.
