The magnificent, centuries old Krakow is a city of culture, art and science.
The historical capital of Poland and the former seat of kings is now among Europe’s most popular and iconic destinations. Krakow’s main Market Square – the largest mediaeval square in Europe – is the heart of the city surrounded by countless unique places of interest such as Nicolaus Copernicus’ alma mater, i.e. the Jagiellonian University founded in 1364, the Wawel castle or the former Jewish quarter Kazimierz.
The city also boasts some of the best museums and theaters in the country and is home to Poland’s top writers, painters, and musicians. Krakow is also known for its numerous major festivals representing all fields of culture: music, literature, visual arts, opera, theatre and photography. These are complemented by approximately 100 smaller cyclical cultural events.
Apart from its charms and cultural importance, the southern Polish city is also a modern, vibrant hub with approximately 1 million inhabitants.
Over the last years, Krakow has become one of the largest outsourcing centers worldwide with over 170 multinationals operating in the city (Tholons Services Globalisation Index 2018). The city is also one of the main hubs for start-ups in Poland.
The importance of the city, which last year alone attracted 13,5 million visitors from around the globe, is also determined by the congresses and conferences, as well as top level international business and political events held here. According to current trends, a business meeting in Krakow is a must.
