Program Description:

Jagiellonian University in Krakow

Kraków is one of the most prominent academic centers in Poland. With over 200,000 students coming to study here every year, it is not unreasonable to wonder what makes Kraków such an attractive place. While everyone certainly has their own individual reason, there are some which stand out amongst the others.

Kraków's location is unique for several reasons. In addition to having all the benefits of a large city, including very well developed public transportation, easy access to hostels and student dormitories, and numerous shopping malls and restaurants, Kraków is also very close to the Tatra Mountains (with many ski resorts and trekking routes near Zakopane), beautiful national parks – Pieniny and Ojców, and Dunajec River Gorge, which offers some interesting rafting opportunities. Additionally, Kraków is not very far from other European capitals, such as Prague and Vienna, so weekend trips to neighboring countries pose no problem to keen travelers. Kraków is also an important transport hub, with quick and comfortable bus, train and plane connections to other cities, both in Poland and abroad.
