Kraków: Poland’s Jewel in the Crown

7 – 11 September 2018

Kraków was Poland’s first capital and it was here that kings were crowned and buried for 500 years until Warsaw became the official capital. Often seen as the country’s cultural hub with its wealth of fine architecture, rich museum collections and fascinating layers of history, the Old Town of Kraków is one of the most beautiful in Europe. It has the largest medieval market square and Wawel castle with its stunning interiors includes Italian Renaissance wooden ceilings, friezes by Durer’s brother Hans, tapestries, paintings by Dosso Dossi and the Dutch School. There is also a contemporary art museum MWW, housed in a former air-raid tower. Art in this cosmopolitan city includes gems such as German altarpieces, wood carvings, Leonardo’s iconic ‘Lady with the Ermine,’ works by Holbein, Brueghel, and Cranach, modern Polish artists like Zbigniew Paluszak, sophisticated glass and ceramics, and a vibrant street art scene.
