Krakow is a picturesque medieval city that is every bit deserving of its World Heritage site status. The Old Town boasts Europe’s largest central square, packed with old structures and monuments. Having escaped destruction during World War II the city offers a deeper insight of the war years with visits to Auschwitz Concentration Camp, Galicia Jewish Museum and Schindler’s Factory Museum. A trip to Warsaw may incorporate a visit to the former ghetto areas and scenes of the Warsaw Uprising, which sought to liberate the city from Nazi power.
The city’s rich cultural and artistic life is inspirational for students of art and design, and it is home to the forward-thinking Cracow Schools of Art and Fashion Design.
