Krakow

It's not easy to explain the uniqueness of Krakow to those who haven't yet experienced the city. It is above all linked to its unparalleled cultural heritage on a national scale. Taking advantage of its geographical position, Krakow yearns to be the place where different cultures and nations meet. It has successfully nominated itself to be the central European metropolis, the city of culture, art and science. Krakow has over 17 higher learning institutes and the number of students exceeds 120 000. What is unique to Krakow is that the life of the city still concentrates itself around the Main Square (Rynek) which, after Piazza San Marco in Venice, is the second largest square in Europe. This creates an unrivalled tourist atmosphere, while still catering to the needs of its inhabitants. History and modernity intertwine here at every step, where every piece of stone has its own story.
