About Kraków

Kraków is a ‘city of students’. Over 130,000 young people study here, and nearly a quarter of them chose the Jagiellonian University.

The old “City of Kings” is widely recognised as the cultural capital of Poland. It has the most museums, art galleries, and community centres of all cities in the country.

Similarly, there are many theatres, concert halls, libraries, and cinemas. Kraków is also home to numerous festivals and parades.

At the same time, Kraków is a thriving business centre. Amongst the city’s greatest assets are numerous research and development institutions and new business centres filled with qualified individuals. The Jagiellonian University is the largest employer in the region. There are over one hundred international corporations operating out of Kraków, providing services in information technology, business analytics, human resources management, accounting, and research and development. A few notable examples are Shell, Google, IBM Software Group, ESET, and ABB
