Wawel, the Barbican and St. Florian’s Gate, the Main Market Square with St.Mary’s Church and the Cloth Hall, as well as Collegium Maius of the Jagiellonian University, are the main tourist attractions.

Krakow also features numerous museums with rich, often little-known collections. Tourists, both those who have already visited Krakow before and those who haven’t, are also invited to get to know the museum collections.

Many collections may suit the tastes of visitors with special interests, be attractive to hobbyists or people interested in the history of a particular age.

In the present publication we would like to invite you to visit the museums whose collections present the everyday life of the people who lived in the Krakow region of yore, as well as their work and customs.
