Adventure Holidays in Krakow

The city of Kraków has a rich and turbulent past. Situated on the Vistula river in the Lesser Poland region, the city dates back to the 7th century. It was the capital of Poland from 1038 to 1596, the capital of the Grand Duchy of Cracow from 1846 to 1918, and the capital of Kraków Voivodeship from the 14th century to 1999. It's traditionally been one of the leading centres of Polish scientific, cultural and artistic life. As the former national capital with a history encompassing over a thousand years, the city remains the spiritual heart of Poland. It is a major attraction for local and international tourists, attracting seven million visitors annually. Famous landmarks include the Main Market Square with St. Mary's Basilica and the Sukiennice Cloth Hall, the Wawel Castle, the National Art Museum, the Zygmunt Bell at the Wawel Cathedral, and the medieval St Florian's Gate with the Barbican along the Royal Coronation Route. In 1978, UNESCO added Cracow's Historic Centre, which includes the Old Town, Kazimierz and the Wawel Castle to the list of World Heritage Sites.
