Situated on the Vistula River in the Lesser Poland region, the city dates back to the 7th century. Krakow has traditionally been one of the leading centres of Polish academic, cultural and artistic life and is one of Poland's most important economic centres. It was the capital of Poland from 1038 to 1596.

Kracow is a unique city, which was founded on the place where the main trade routes of medieval Europe crossed. Traditions of burghers, religious and cultural tolerance go back to the 13th century.
