The training takes place near Krakow, which is said to be one of the most beautiful and charming cities in Poland. It is also one of the oldest Polish cities and used to be a capital of Poland until 1596. Krakow is situated in southern part of the country, near the river Vistula. Krakow’s Main Market Square, which you can see on the pictures, is the largest medieval town square in Europe. Krakow is a typical university city with twenty three universities and thousands of enthusiastic students living there. In 2000, the authorities of the European Union chose Krakow as the European Capital of Culture.
