  3. 3. Krakow is the second largest and one of the oldest cities in Poland. Situated on the Vistula River in the Lesser Poland region, the city dates back to the 7th century. Krakow has traditionally been one of the leading centres of Polish academic, cultural, and artistic life and is one of Poland's most important economic hubs. It was the capital of Poland from 1038 to 1569. It is now the capital of the Lesser Poland Voivodeship.
  4. 4. POPULATION Kraków had a recorded population of almost 800,000 (in 2009). The ravages of history have greatly reduced the percentage of ethnic minorities living in Kraków. According to the 2002 census, among those who have declared their national identity in Kraków Voivodeship were: Slovaks (1,572), Ukrainians (472), Jews (50), Armenians (22) and Romani people (officially 1,678, estimated at over 5,000). Statistics collected by the Ministry of Education reveal that, even though only 1% of adults officially claim minority status, as many as 3% of students participate in programmes designed for ethnic minorities.
