We invite You for the sightseeing of a really unique quarter of the Old Town. The University in our city is the oldest in Poland and one of the oldest in the Central Europe. The first studium generale (which means ‘university’ in medieval Latin) was founded in 1364 by king Kasimir the Great, but unfortunately declined after his death. Renewal of the university was made in 1400 by king Władysław, the first Polish monarch from the Jagiellonian dynasty (hence the present name of the academy – Jagiellonian University). Since the times of Władysław Jagiello academic district is located near the Main Square, between St. Anne’s street and Gołębia street.
Visiting Krakow without this extraordinary place would be incomplete. Our Krakow guides will show You its unique charm, starting from the Collegium Maius – the oldest university building. During our short walk, ending in front of 19th century Collegium Novum, we will tell You the history of the Academy and its exceptional graduates, from Nicolaus Copernicus to Pope John Paul II. You would be enchanted by the atmosphere of calm, seriousness and dignity. See the place, that has shaped intellectual identity of Krakow!
