Sightseeing

 
Kraków is a unique city, in which the traces of Polish centuries-old history are visible at every turn. It was in Kraków that in 1000 a diocese was established and the construction of the first cathedral began - the Wawel Cathedral. A few years later, Kraków became the capital of Poland and remained capital until 1609 when King Sigismund III Vasa decided to move the capital to Warsaw.
 

Historic Kraków consists of, first and foremost, its architecture, the layout of streets and buildings, which allow us to imagine how this extraordinary city was organized hundreds of years ago.

Also the numerous museums, galleries and exhibitions conceal Kraków's history created throughout the centuries.


And when in need of rest from all the hubbub of the streets, one can always go to the great green area in the very heart of the city known as Błonia, the Jordan Park or Las Wolski forest, or visit one of the popular holiday places located not far from the city (Zakopane and the Tatra Mountains, Ojców National Park), sacred sites (Wadowice and Kalwaria, the Benedictine Abbey in Tyniec), places of historical interest (Wieliczka Salt Mine), or places of memory (Oświęcim (Auschwitz)).
