Krakow

Poland’s royal capital from the 11th to the 17th century, Krakow was included on UNESCO’s first World Heritage list in 1978. Since the Tatar raids in the 13th century, the Old Town has remained mostly intact, the only large Polish city to escape the destruction of WWII. In its center is the largest remaining medieval town square in Europe, Rynek Glowny, the atmospheric Main Market Square, laid out in 1257.
