Averages for Krakow in April
April sees the weather
continue to improve in Krakow, Poland, as the
average temperature doubles to 8°C. The average high is 12°C and the average
low 3°C, so April is the first month of the year that does not reach freezing
temperatures. The sea temperature is slightly warmer than earlier months,
averaging 28°C, but there is an increase of rainfall to 40mm over 15 days. It
is, along with May, the least humid month of the year at 70%, and there are 11
hours of sunshine per day – making it one of the sunniest months of the year.
April hosts the Easter
celebrations, and these include religious ceremonies and parades, along with
various events being held around the Wawel Cathedral. Visitors may also want to
look at the Bishop’s Palace – although nothing to do with Easter itself, it is
a popular tourist destination and fits in with the religious themes of the
month. It dates back to the 14th century and was once the residence of John
Paul II – he lived there until 1978 as the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Krakow, before becoming pope.
Hotel Senacki is one of Krakow’s newest hotels,
and is located in an attractive part of town. Situated just minutes away from
Wawel Hill, with the Royal
Castle and the
Cathedral, and the Old Square
and Kazimierz, the Jewish district, the hotel is perfect for visitors. The
hotel has a restaurant, safe deposit box, luggage storage, room service,
laundry and ironing service, a gift shop and free Internet.
