KRAKOW The capital of Poland until the end of the sixteenth century, Krakow has been superseded by Warsaw, and is now the fourth largest city in the country, but is often still referred to as the country's cultural capital. The world-renowned Jagellonian University, Wawel Castle and one of Europe's largest market squares are all contained in one of the best-preserved medieval city centers in Europe. The largely unspoilt Old Town has now been declared a World Heritage Site. Laid out in 1257, the RynekGlowny (Main Market Square) is one of the largest medieval market squares in Europe - the centerpiece of a town plan which was, and remains, a remarkable piece of town planning. The grid-like pattern of streets surrounded by a treelined pedestrian avenue (once the limit of the city walls) makes it easy even today to walk around the city. To the south, and connected to the Market Square by the long, straight Grodzkastreet, lies Wawel Castle, the seat of Polish kings from the eleventh to the early seventeenth century.
