Poland Through the Centuries
The once capital of Poland, Krakow is a city of perseverance, rich history, and beauty. Step into one of its many medieval squares and experience the power and wealth of old Europe. Gaze over the Vistula river and imagine a time when these waters served as main highway to Warsaw. Visit Wawel Castle and understand the importance that Poland has played in the Austrian, Prussian, and Russian empires. Every corner of Krakow offers a new glimpse into Europe’s evolution.
Beyond the museums and castles you’ll find delicious Polish cuisine. Try authentic pierogis, a bowl of rosól, or a few golabkis – Polish for cabbage rolls. Immerse yourself in the culture of Chopin as you stroll through the main city squares. Appreciate the scientific advances of Copernicus, born and raised in Poland. Allow yourself to ponder the natural energy chakra emanating from the Wawel Castle.
