The Collegium Maius

Address:
ul. Jagiellońska 15, Kraków

The inscription Plus ratio quam vis (Reason over force) lies on the wallof the Jagiellonian Ceremonial Roomof Collegium Maius. The oldest seatof Krakow University was foundedby the Jagiellons in 1400, but over the centuries was remodelled several times. A small, quiet courtyard surrounded with 15th-century arcades, is one of Krakow's most magical sites. Its arcaded passages, the Jagiellonian University Museum with its interesting library collection, the oldest Rector's insignia, astronomical instruments and a unique collection of ancient globes, are certainly worth a visit.
