Krakow is one of most beautiful cities in Eastern Europe. It is over one thousand years old, and it used to be the capital of Poland. It is the country's cultural center, making it a truly must-see destination. In the center of Krakow is the largest medieval square in all of Europe, Old Market Square. It is lined with historic buildings. In the center of the square is the 13th-century Cloth Hall (Sukiennice), now home to souvenir and crafts stalls.

Within walking distance and west of the square are the Gothic 14th-century buildings of Jagiellonian University (the second-oldest university in Eastern Europe). Copernicus' instruments are housed in its Collegium Maius.

The Wawel Castle is a thousand-year-old palace/fortress atop a hill. The castle houses the royal treasures, the enormous Sigismund Bell and a cathedral with the crypts of several Polish monarchs.

Karol Wojtyla, known as John Paul II since his October 1978 election to the papacy, was born in the Polish town of Wadowice, a small city 50 kilometers from Krakow. He spent half of his life in Krakow.
