About Krakow

Krakow is the former capital of Poland, residence of Polish kings and the site of the oldest university in Central Europe. The city was fortunately not destroyed during its volatile history and today is competing with some of the most beautiful European cities. The medieval old town, which is on the UNESCO List of World Heritage Sites, is the dynamic heart of Krakow, buzzing with students, residents and tourists from all over the world.

The key points of interest are the main Market Square – the largest medieval square in Europe, Royal Castle Wawel, Collegium Maius of Jagiellonian University, the Cloth Hall, the old Jewish district of Kazimierz and many more. Follow the steps of Pope John Paul II who used to be the Cardinal of Krakow.
