Historic Kraków

The incorporation of Kraków (under the Magdeburg Law) dates back to 1257. It was then that the Main Market Square was created, together with streets radiating from it. This layout has been preserved up to this day. For many civilians, the streets are just the perfect place for a Sunday walk, whereas for tourists – the usual beginning of their encounter with the city.

It is definitely worthwhile to take a look at the oldest Polish school of higher education – the Jagiellonian University – whose most important buildings are very well preserved and located in the centre of the city. It is worth to climb the Wawel Hill, the former seat of Polish kings. It is also very rewarding to stroll about the Kraków district of Kazimierz, see Błonia (the common land, a big, plain meadow in the very heart of the city) or drop by the pleasant Jordan Park.
