Weather in Krakow, Poland by month: January and February

Beautiful winter weather in Krakow, Poland

Visiting Krakow in January or February doesn’t seem a good idea (when you first think of it) as those are cold winter months. On the other hand, you can probably get better apartment/hotel rates because the Poles go skiing during the winter holidays, which means cities like Krakow have fewer tourists.

Anyway, with winter in full swing, expect below-zero temperatures, frosty scenery and rosy cheeks.

Make sure you bring really warm clothes; winter hats, snug boots and gloves are a must.

January is actually the best month to go Skiing in Poland. As we saw in 2015 and 2016, the mountainous regions get considerably more snow in the first weeks of the new year than in December so it’s the right time to hit the slopes in the Beskids and the Tatras.
