In its more than 1,500 years, Krakow has been an imperial capital, a political backwater, an independent city state, and the scene of earthshaking triumphs and tragedies in Polish history.

It was more than six centuries after its founding as an obscure settlement on a bend in the River Vistula that Krakow became the royal capital of a recently unified Polish nation. Mieszko I, the first King of Poland, added Krakow, already a thriving commercial centre, to his dominions in the last decade of the 10th century. By 1038 the city had become the seat of his royal line.

The 1500+ years of history, and the different influences, which followed the shifts of power, has set it’s marks on Krakow, its architecture, its culture and the people living there, making it an amazing place to visit.
