Krakow was first mentioned in the year 965 as a rich burg city, situated at the crossing of trade routes and surrounded by woods. In 1138, Krakow Castle became more important as the official home of the highest Duke. Since 1320, the Cathedral has been witness to coronation ceremonies occurring over the following five centuries. In 1364, Kazimierz the Great founded the Krakow Academy, which was the origin of the later Jagiellonian University. In the Jagiellonian epoch which lasted for the next 200 years, Krakow with Europe's biggest market square became the capital of a monarchy spreading over territories from the Baltic to the Black Sea. The royal court played an important role in supporting artistic and cultural life. Outstanding humanists, scientists and artists came to Krakow from Italy, Germany and other countries.

Today, Krakow is Poland's second academic center with over 200,000 students, and a very dynamic scientific milieu. It houses the National Science Centre, which is a government executive agency set up to fund basic research. Krakow is home to many artists of worldwide reputation and hosts a vast number of artistic events. Having about 300 restaurants, pubs and cafes within the down town area, Krakow is known as the main destination of gourmet tourism in Poland. The social programme will include visits to some of these sites.
