Medieval Charm

The former Polish capital will forever be linked with events during WWII, but it’s also a city of great compassion and optimism so while Krakow school trips will find the German camp is a fascinating and informative reminder of the past it certainly isn’t all there is to see in the city.

The city has many historical sites covering many eras of the city’s history there is so much for students to see and do in what is a modern, bustling and vibrant city that retains much of its medieval charm and character.
