Kraków city with history and future

Krakow has always been famous for its beauty, charm and culture. It is the second largest and one of the oldest cities in Poland, dating back to the 7th century. Unlike most Polish cities, Krakow survived WWII virtually undamaged, preserving its magnificent architecture. The Wawel Royal Castle, the Main Market Square and Cloth Hall, St. Mary’s Church, and the Jewish district Kazimierz are only very few famous attractions. The city has traditionally been one of the leading centers of Polish academic, cultural, and artistic life. The world-renowned Jagiellonian University, established in 1364 is located here. With a student population of 170,000, the city has a youthful and energetic vibe. Numerous theatres, museums, galleries, and unusual artistic events are all interesting and worthwhile plans for a free time. Krakow is also a city of clubs, cafes and restaurants. Just outside the city a historical Wieliczka Salt Mine with an underground cathedral, included on the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage List, and the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp from the WWII are located. Krakow is a remarkable city that should be visited at least once in a lifetime.

Access to Krakow is very convenient

Krakow’s John Paul II International Airport(code KRK) is the main airport. It is situated in Balice, only 15 km (about ten miles) from the city center, which can be reached by shuttle train to main railway station, bus or taxi. The airport has regular direct flights from all major European cities.

Hotel Galaxy Venue

The school will be held in Krakow Hotel Galaxy placed close to the old Kazimierz Jewish District.
