"Krakow is one of my favorite places on earth. It is a medieval city full of young people. A wonderful, striking combination." - Jonathan Caroll
Dating back to the seventh century, Krakow was the capital of Poland during the country’s greatest era until 1596, and today it is Poland’s second largest city. Despite its medieval look, Krakow is a city of youth with many university students from all around the world bringing the city to life. Despite its nightlife and youthfulness Krakow remains a hotspot for those interested in arts, culture and historical monuments. Cited as one the most beautiful cities of Europe, the old town of Krakow was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site with its beautiful monuments and churches like the St Mary’s Church which dates back to 1497.
Krakow is the ideal location if you want to plunge yourself back into the past with its breathtaking architecture.
