  2. 2. Kraków  ( also Cracow or 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.  Kraków has traditionally been one of the leading centers  of Polish academic, cultural, and artistic life and is one o f Poland's most important economic hubs. 
  3. 3. It was the capital of Poland from 1038 to 1569;  the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth from  1569 to 1596; Free City of Kraków from 1815  to 1846; the Grand Duchy of Cracow from  1846 to 1918; and Kraków Voivodeship from  the 14th century to 1999.  It is now the capital of the Lesser Poland  Voivodeship.
