The cultural capital of Poland and the second largest city. For many centuries it was home to the Polish kings. The rapid growth of the city in the medieval times granted the city an extraordinary character which is visible until today. It was not a surprise that in 1978 the entire Old Town of Krakow was inscribed on the UNESCO world heritage list. Major landmarks include the Main Market Square, Wawel Royal Castle, Sukiennice cloth hall and many more. Since the opening of the Jagiellonian University in 1364 Krakow has become an educational centre of Poland which it remains until today with its university student population of nearly 200 thousand.

Gdansk, Gdynia, Sopot ( Tricity).

The Gdansk Old Town offers some of the nicest architecture in the country. Sopot, on the other hand, introduces to all the visitors probably the most vibrant nightlife in the country, where everybody will find their perfect place.
