3rd International festival of choirs and orchestras in Cracow (Poland)
CRACOW – one of the world’s twelve most important cities | 29 September - 3 October 2011
The both past and present secret capital city of Poland is one of Europe’s last undiscovered travel destinations. It was here that His Holiness Pope John Paul II worked for twelve years as a bishop. The centre point of the old city is the Rynek (main market square), one of the biggest and most beautiful market squares in Europe. The market square is shared by the cloth halls and the Gothic St. Mary basilica. At the southern edge of the old city the Wawelberg stands, with its famous royal castle. In 2000, Cracow was the European Capital of Culture.
