Based on the site of the former military airfield, the modern airport complex began operating in 1964, and after a while it was named in honor of Pope John Paul II, who once served as archbishop in Krakow. The airport consists of an international and domestic terminal, connected regularly by a free shuttle bus. Passengers are invited to spend time waiting for the flight in a comfortable recreation area, in one of the cafes or in the Duty Free zone.
Each year, more than three million guests arrive in Krakow, attracted by the charm of old streets, the majesty of Gothic churches and the beauty of the royal castle. But it preserved not only a reminder of the former luxury of the city when it was the royal capital, but also the horrors of the Nazi concentration camps, because Auschwitz camp, now a museum in the open air, is located very close by, and the Jewish city of Kazimierz, a suburb of Krakow, is known to many by the film "Schindler's list". To cover all historical monuments during the trip, use the services of car rental companies and take the time to travel to the city of Wroclaw, which attracts with colorful houses and romantic canals, and salt caves in Wieliczka.
