Polish course in Kraków

Study on a Polish course in Kraków, a city rich in both history and nightlife! The majestic Rynek Glówny (the main square) will leave you speechless, as the age-old, narrow streets open out onto the expansive square. Savour the incredible sight of the towering Basilica of Saint Mary, with its glittering interior, and the striking Renaissance Sukiennice (cloth hall).

Kraków’s two most interesting neighbourhoods are the old town around the beautiful main square, and the atmospheric old Jewish quarter of Kazimierz. Between the two, the magnificent Wawel Castle, with vibrant chapels reminiscent of Russia, overlooks the River Vistula. The scenic streets around Rynek Glówny are home to many fashionable shops and elegant eateries, as well as the remnants of Kraków’s city walls and peaceful parks. In both the old town and in Kazimierz, you’ll find excellent museums to tell the story of the city, and cosy underground bars and jazz clubs.
