Why study in Krakow?

Krakow is one of the oldest and largest academic centres in Poland. A great number of students come here both from Poland and many other countries. The city boasts as many as 23 higher education institutions attended by some 210 thousand students. This is here, in Krakow, where one of Europe's oldest universities is located - the Jagiellonian University, attended by Nicolaus Copernicus.

A large number of schools and students from all over the world make Krakow a friendly and open place with lots of various cultural events. Some of those events are organized by students themselves including "Juvenalia" - a feast of Krakow's Students. During the three days of "Juvenalia" students "rule" the city. Numerous concerts take place, and students (wearing funny clothes) are received by the Mayor of Krakow, who gives them the keys to the city. Apart from the educational offering, the exciting cultural and night life, students are attracted by the atmosphere of the city itself and the charm of its old architecture.
