Kraków is a city of approximately one million people in the very heart of Europe. Being Poland's former capital, the cradle and pantheon of Polish kings, it is also a city of learning with one of the oldest universities in Europe. Kraków is a city of both museums and youth: a city of one hundred fifty thousand university students. It is a city of meetings, festivals and conferences. The city of cafés and restaurants that enchant all those who even for a moment set foot in its old town. The city has eluded destruction since the Tatar raid of 1241. Thus, Kraków has preserved its original body of structure and buildings. The functionality of its thirteenth-century urban plan is proven by the fact that it still works today! Cultural, administrative and commercial life is focused around Kraków's 40 000 square-meter town square, the largest one in Europe.
