Krakow is an ancient city located in southern Poland, on the banks of the Vistula river. In the XI-XVI centuries the city was the national capital, the residence of monarchs, the place of coronation and burial of Polish kings. Thanks to its 1000-year history, many still consider it the heart of Poland.
This unique city, created by generations of craftsmen and artists of the middle ages, Renaissance, Baroque and art Nouveau (secession), happily escaped the ravages of war, always fascinates and attracts millions of tourists ensembles of old streets and fortifications, unique monuments of architecture and art, numerous cultural events and… the magical atmosphere of the cafe cafes, restaurants, pubs, taverns and jazz clubs.
In the Old town are preserved several hundred most valuable architectural monuments. The Krakow Old town in 1978 was included in the UNESCO list of the most valuable monuments of world cultural heritage.
