Discover Krakow - stunning, historic and culture packed city where history becomes intertwined with the present day

Krakow, majestically situated on the Vistula River is a royal city with a long and rich tradition.
In 1040 King Kazimierz Odnowiciel (Casimir the Restorer) transferred the capital of the country from Gniezno to Krakow.  Under the reign of King Kazimierz Wielki (Casimir the Great) during what was known as  “The Golden Age”, trade, crafts, art and science underwent their most intensive development. In 1364 the King founded the Academy of Krakow, which later became the Jagiellonian University, one of the oldest universities in Europe. Many eminent Poles such as Nicolaus Copernicus, John Paul II and Wisława Szymborska graduated from this university.

The structure of this city  of culture was largely left unscathed by World War II and it is a living museum of magnificent palaces and historical treasures. There are 300 ancient buildings and 58 churches and palaces in the area of the Old Town. You can walk along the Royal Route starting from the Barbican and finishing at the Wawel Hill, known as the “Polish Acropolis”,  with its Castle and Cathedral. Here Polish kings were crowned and buried.
In the Old Town you can explore the oldest and longest mediaeval square in Europe, the Main Market Square where one can visit the St Mary’s Church - known especially for its magnificent hand carved altar masterpiece, created by the famous sculptor Wit Stwosz.
In 1978, in appreciation of the exceptional historic and artistic value of Krakow, UNESCO included it on its first list of the World’s Cultural Heritage. The city is Poland’s cultural capital and one of the most splendid towns in Europe, is a gem of historic architecture.  Krakow, described as the “Rome of the North”, is an ancient city with a modern spirit.
