As Poland’s second largest city, it is also one of the oldest too. Settlements here date back to prehistoric times, but the earliest proven date is the early 13th century. Surviving German occupation and the Second World War, much of Krakow’s history is still very much evident today, particularly in the Old Town area of the city. The city was also one of the first sites to be awarded the UNESCO World Heritage status in 1978, giving it another reason to visit.
