Krakow

Krakow, one of the most beautiful Polish cities, has a long history of traditions which reaches back even further than a thousand years. Everyone who visited this city at least once will not forget the atmosphere of the old castle walls, the Wawel Hill with the dragon's cave, stretching just above the lazily flowing Vistula, a charming market with the outstanding St. Mary's Church and lots of greenery.

Wawel is a special place for the Poles which remains a symbol that has been connecting the whole nation for generations. Although Warsaw has been the capital of Poland for over 400 years now, there is no such place as Wawel. It is considered a symbol of royal power and an eyewitness to the birth of Polishness and its further formation. Towering over the city and looking from the limestone hill Wawel represents strength and significance of the country in its glory days. Initially, the castle had a wooden form and its stone walls started to be built in the 11th century, starting with the Rotunda of the Blessed Virgin Mary (what is now the chapel). For several centuries stone walls replaced the wooden ones, and after a fire in the 15th century, the Wawel castle was completely rebuilt. Today, you can admire its towers: Sandomierska, Senatorska, Złodziejska, Herbowa and Wazów, Sobieski's Tower or St. Leonard’s Crypt.

There are over 120 churches in Krakow most of which are hundreds-year-old historic buildings. In addition to the St. Mary's Church on the Main Market Square, you can spot the 14th-century buildings, the Church of Corpus Christi, the Church of St. Catherine of Alexandria and St. Margaret, Cathedral of St. Waclaw and St. Stanislawa, a series of churches from the 11th century and the older one built after the capital was moved. The city center itself is, without a doubt, the most important and the biggest square called the Main Market Square. You can admire Krakow Cloth Hall here, St. Mary’s Church, the Town Hall Tower, St. Wojciech’s Church and around 40 medieval tenement houses. Krakow Cloth Hall deserves special attention since it was the very first marketplace in the city’s history. The name comes from the cloth stalls built under the order of Boleslaw V the Chaste as a series of stone structures separated by streets. The object has taken on its present form after the reconstruction in the 16th century. The architect gave it a more artistic look by adding the arcaded attic and mascarons. The main square of Krakow is completed by the Small Market Square with a number of historic buildings. The city is still surrounded by what has remained of the defensive walls with the Barbican. Also, let us not forget about the famous Florian Gate and several preserved towers.
