KRAKÓW, POLAND

The former capital city of Poland, Krakow is better known as a capital of culture. It is a safe, friendly, cosmopolitan city with many museums and galleries, as well as its famous university built in the 14th Century.

Famed too for its medieval centre, Royal Castle and the vast Rynek Glowny, Europe’s largest market square, Krakow comes alive at night particularly in the former Jewish quarter, Kazimierz district – the place to entertain and be entertained!

5 places to see

  • Market Square
  • Wawel Hill
  • The Wieliczka Salt Mine
  • Kazimierz district
  • St Mary’s Basilica
"After almost ten years of LdV/E+ projects this is the best experience so far. Tellus are truly professionals keeping the project focus straight from application until the very end. Their staff are just wonderful, as well as their services. The most inspiring and useful part was collaborating on ECVET implementation. Highly recommended."

Jaroslav Smola, Project Manager from Czech Republic
