Kraków is a thousand-years-old city on the River Wisła. It is a former capital of Poland and the seat of kings. The city takes pride in an exceptional concentration of valuable historic monuments and buildings as well as works of art.
The most interesting sights are: the Old Town with its preserved medieval city street pattern and a very large market place, the Wawel royal castle, architecture from medieval to contemporary including more than a hundred churches and numerous monasteries, the Jewish Quarter and Nowa Huta - an exceptional example of socrealistic urban planning. The city's surroundings are also very interesting with plenty of places worth visiting as the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum, the oldest operating medieval salt mine in Wieliczka or numerous castles.
Kraków can be easily reached from anywhere in the world by plane (airport Balice), railway or car (A4 motorway).
