Welcome to Cracow, a city wrapped in legend, where time flows differently, and where every moment becomes a moment of history. For centuries Cracow was the capital of Poland, the seat of kings, drawing great scholars and artists from the whole world. It is their talents and imagination we must thank for the city's rich legacy of unique historical relics, which reflect the most important trends in European culture.
The renaissance Royal Castle at Wawel, the gothic St Mary's Basilica, the historical trade pavilions of the Cloth Hall, the former separate Jewish city of Kazimierz, and even the Nowa Huta district, absorbed by Cracow together with its socialist-realist, industrial architecture, are all places which make a visit to Cracow extremely worthwhile.
Although the city no longer plays such an important administrative role, for many people, thanks to its rich history, Cracow nevertheless represents a synthesis of all things Polish, connecting tradition with modernity. In the special atmosphere of the beautiful and mysterious streets of the Old Town and Kazimierz you will find everything you need to allow you to escape from everyday life. Galleries full of exhibitions, cafes, pubs and restaurants: all of this is an integral part of any visit to Cracow. And all this is merely a modest part of what we can offer travellers seeking exciting destinations on the world map.
