My name is Nikki van Winkel, and I have been living in Krakow for 5 years now. Together with my boyfriend, we run a tour company where we organize bike tours and walking tours.

One of the things that struck me the most in this amazing city is how many super trendy and good gastronomy venues there are here! Because I enjoy sharing this with people, I decided to write a book about it! I hope you enjoy this wonderful culinary city as much as I do every day!


Because there is so much to explore, I have tried to conveniently organize my food guide as clearly as possible, so you don’t have to search long for your perfect spot.

Therefore, all districts are indicated with different colors: everything in the old town is on pink pages, the Jewish Quarter (Kazimierz) is green, Podgórze (surrounding the former Jewish ghetto) is purple, and everything just outside the center is yellow. I’ve also created different chapters such as lunch, dinner, wine and beer, so you can quickly go to the pages you’re looking for!

To give you an extra treat, I have included two routes at the back of the book: a beautiful walking route with nice dining and drinking spots in between, and a pub crawl if you want to discover different bars with your friends.

Enjoy my food guide and soak up the beauty of the city of Krakow!


Old Town (Stare Miasto)

The Old Town, with its rich history and striking architecture, attracts many tourists because of the largest market square in Europe and the beautiful Wawel Castle, both UNESCO World Heritage sites. Surrounded by the lovely Planty Park, the district offers a variety of restaurants and bars, although finding authentic places among the tourist hotspots can be a challenge. For breakfast and lunch, the old center is my favorite.



The Jewish quarter of Krakow, once the cultural center of the Jewish community in Poland, still reflects its rich history in architecture, but Jewish culture is no longer dominant. The district has flourished in recent years, with old buildings, graffiti, and artist shops providing the backdrop for numerous cozy restaurants and bars. In the summer, there are many outdoor seating areas, from squares to hidden gardens, which give this district its authentic charm.


Podgórze / Zabłocie

his emerging district holds a lot of history, with traces of the former ghetto from World War II and the opportunity to visit Schindler’s factory. In addition to historical attractions, the district also offers one of Krakow’s most beautiful churches and plenty of green space. In terms of gastronomy, it’s a trendy destination, with many young entrepreneurs creating contemporary restaurants and bars.


Outside the center of Krakow, there are numerous beautiful places to discover, suitable for nature lovers, food enthusiasts, and fans of panoramic views. Krakow is known for its green areas with lakes, parks, and viewpoints, perfect for relaxation and natural beauty. Even outside the center, you’ll find an abundance of trendy dining spots, including a converted old fortress, a terrace in the middle of a meadow, and a food court along the river with various craft beer and cocktail bars.
