You draw back the curtains, open the window and look out towards the Royal Wawel Castle. The beauty of the city overwhelms you. You stand – for what feels like seconds – taking in every tiny detail of the Old Town’s architecture, before your thoughts are interrupted by a rumble; half an hour has passed, and your stomach is reminding you it’s time for breakfast.
Breakfast is served in the beautiful hotel patio covered by the glass roof. The rest of your morning is spent exploring the Old Town, admiring the beauty of the city at street level before retiring to the hotel’s Patio Café for lunch. You sip tea and discuss the magnificent architecture and beautiful surroundings with friends before the Gothic ambience of the Copernicus Spa by L’Occitane beckons. You make your way down to the medieval vaulted cellars, enjoy a soothing massage and feel completely refreshed. The spa oozes luxurious calmness; you take a moment to rest your eyes in the relaxation area…
Before you know it, it’s time, once more, to satisfy your hunger. Prior to your gourmet dinner in the Copernicus Restaurant you can’t help but take yourself to the terrace. You watch the sunset over the Old Town and feel captivated by the magic of this city.
