Krakow is the second largest and one of the oldest cities in Poland.
Situated on the Vistula River (Polish: Wisła) in the Lesser Poland Region. The city dates back to the 7th century.
Krakow has traditionally been one of the leading centres of Polish academic, cultural, and artistic life and it is one of the Poland’s most important economic hubs.
The city has grown from a Stone Age settlement to the Poland’s second most important city. It began as a hamlet on Wawel Hill and was already being reported as a busy trading centre of Slavonic Europe in 965.
The city has a population of approximately 760,000, while about 8 million people live within a 100 km radius of its main square.
After the invasion of Poland by Nazi Germany when the World War II started, Kraków was turned into the capital of Germany’s General Government.
The Jewish population of the city was moved into a walled zone known as Kraków Ghetto, from which they were sent to the extermination camps such as Auschwitz and the concentration camp in Płaszów.
The “Wieliczka” Salt Mine is one of the most valuable monuments of material and spiritual culture in Poland.
Each year it is visited by more than one million tourists from all over the world.
It is also a world class monument, featuring among twelve objects on the UNESCO’s World Cultural and Natural Heritage List.
The mine is a product of work of tens of generations of miners, a monument to the history of Poland and to the Polish nation – a brand, present in Polish consciousness for centuries.
