What to Pack for Krakow in July

Even if you prefer sandals for summertime weather, it's best to bring a reliable pair of walking shoes if you plan to explore the city on foot.

Sandals or flip-flops can get caught on cobblestones and don't provide the cushion or support you'll want after a full day of sightseeing.

Cotton and linen clothing is good for the day, and more formal summertime wear – slacks for men and airy dresses for women – will have you blending right in with the locals for nights out on the town.
