Krakow is one of the oldest cities in Poland named City of Kings and the main tourist destination in Europe. To this day it remains the most important Polish city and a cultural centre of Poland and Central Europe.

Krakow is situated in southern Poland on both banks of the Vistula River. Krakow has a rich history. It was a residence of Polish kings and the capital for five centuries. The city boasts hundreds of historical buildings, from medieval churches to Art Nouveau edifices and includes ¼ of Poland’s museum resources. The key points of interest are the Market Square (the largest medieval square in Europe), the Wawel Castle, St. Mary’s Church, Barbican, the Cloth Hall, the old Jewish district of Kazimierz and many more. Thanks to the extraordinary accumulation of cultural wealth, the city was registered on the UNESCO World Heritage List and today competes with some of the most beautiful European cities.

Krakow is also one of the leading centres of science and education in Poland with over 20 institutions of higher education and universities.

Now Krakow is a modern metropolis but it still has a magical atmosphere which makes the visit an unforgettable experience.
