The sales market in the city centre

The city centre comprises many different areas of downtown Krakow. Due to the proximity to the old town square and other central attractions, the city centre is a popular place to purchase an apartment, and prices are generally above the average in the city. There is always a good selection of apartments to for sale in the city centre, from low standard apartments requiring renovation up to luxury apartments targeted to wealthy locals and expats.

Many investors, both local and foreign, also want to buy an apartment in the city centre to then rent out. Some wealthy buyers from other cities in Poland and overseas also purchase apartments for holiday use.

Property in the city centre

Real estate in the city centre of Krakow is characterized by old tenement or town house style buildings (in Polish, ‘kamienica’), of varying standard and condition. New build property is as dispersed within the old town although it is less common and more in demand when available owing to lack of supply.

Within the old city walls, where cars are restricted, the usage of property is mainly for commercial purposes, such as hotels, shops, restaurants and offices. Although there are also a number of residential apartments located right in the centre of the city, most people who want to be in the city centre prefer to live just outside of the old city walls which is more suited to residential purposes.
