The capital of Poland from the 11th to the 16th century, Cracow is a centre of history, culture and learning like no other. A former residence of monarchs, a treasury of art and architecture that survived the destruction of World War II, and home to one of the first universities which was established in the mid-14th century, today is one of the most historically valuable cities in Europe. The enchanting Old Town, ringed by a park, is listed as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site.
