Krakow, situated upon the Vistula River, the second largest Polish city in terms of the number of residents (nearly 800 thousand) and area, is an exceptional place. A former Polish capital (until 1611), seat of the Kings, abounding with valuable historical sites, museums, theatres, charming joints, it forms a symbiotic relationship with its eventful past, and successfully combines over-a-millennium-long tradition and modernity. It attracts tourists with outstanding beauty, unique atmosphere, the enchantment of Krakow.
