Krakow is famous for its rich history, world-class monuments, Wawel Dragon, and pretzels. But it isn’t worth limiting a visit to Krakow to just the legendary bugle call and sightseeing at the Wawel Royal Castle. Besides its historic heritage, Krakow also means festivals of international renown, innovative museums in which modernity links with tradition, and dozens of places connected with John Paul II.
Krakow is a city of a thousand-year-long tradition that used to play an important role as the capital of Poland and the seat of kings. Today Krakow is the capital of the Malopolska Region and a significant metropolis. It is the most recognizable Polish city in the world and one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe – it is visited by more than 8 million tourists annually. Everybody can find something here for themselves – not only history enthusiasts but also pilgrims, music, dance, and art lovers.
