Cracow, for 700 years the ancient capital of Poland, is its most historic and architecturally ornate city and one of Europe's architectural gems. Its oldest quarter is on UNESCO's list of the world's 12 most precious monuments. Cracow tells the story of the city from its Silver Age in the 14th century, when its power and properity stemmed from its location at the crossing point of commercial routes to all parts of the world, through its Golden Age in the 15th and 16th centuries, up to the present day. Photographs show the city in all its splendour, including the late Gothic St Mary's Church, Wawel Castle, and Main Square (the largest medieval piazza in Europe), conveying all that is magnificent and unique about this unforgettable city.
