Krakow

Kraków is the second largest and one of the oldest cities in Poland. As the former capital, this charming city remains one of the most culturally and politically significant places in the country. The city is steeped in history; it was the former central site of the Nazi General Government during WWII and is home to Oskar Schindler’s Enamel Factory (now a museum).  The historic town center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the Jewish quarter accommodated more Jewish residents than any other city in Europe during WWII. While Kraków maintains its historic roots that has not held it back from moving forward with modern and contemporary architecture, art, innovation, and business—with over 200 startups and many technical and economic events. Kraków is a lively and vibrant city with a large student population.
