So you’ve decided to come to Krakow? Great! But do you know how much it costs to live there? How much should you be spending on accommodation or on your daily needs? If you’re still asking yourself these questions and are not sure how much money you should expect to spend (and therefore save up before coming) in Krakow, you can have a look at our list.

Where to stay

Choosing a place to stay is always a problem. Since you probably don’t know the city that well or not at all, it may be a bit of a struggle to find something in the perfect location. First of all, you should check public transport connections and then decide whether you want to live close to the city centre, close to the university or in the halls of residence. The good thing about Krakow is that you can get almost anywhere on foot and most of the campuses are close to the centre.

Secondly, you should consider how much money you’re able to spend on accommodation. Halls of residence tend to be cheaper than private accommodation but also more crowded, so it really depends on you. The most popular districts in Krakow, where most of the students decide to stay are Stare Miasto (Krakow city centre), Kleparz, Krowodrza and Podgórze.

If you are looking for the best accommodation, we can help you. Erasmusu offers hundreds of options to help you choose between spaces to stay: rooms for rent in shared flats, studios, university residences or dorms and entire apartments all around Krakow so that you can find the perfect home for you before coming to a city.

Required Documents

If you are a student and you’re going to live in Krakow for some time, in order to rent an apartment or just a room, most landlords will ask you for your ID document or passport with a photo. You will probably be asked to leave a deposit, so make sure that you ask for a signed contract. This way, they will be legally obliged to return it after your contract has finished.

If you’re coming to Poland to work, they may also ask you for your employment contract to see if you are able to pay your rent each month.
