Krakow oozes culture and history, as a former medieval capital and makes a great location given all its historic connections and proximity to Auschwitz. Krakow's heart is the Rynek Glowny (Market Square) and surrounding historic places of the Old Town. There are plenty theatres, art galleries, museums, colleges, as well as an Opera, botanical gardens, restaurants, coffee shops and shopping centres. It has a traditional Christmas market which takes place in the main square.
Poland has an educated population and in some respects has played an outsourcing role like India or China has performed, in the white collar sector. Google have set up Polish laboratories to take advantage of good computer programmers. And Poland has moved up in the World Bank's 'Doing Business' rankings to 45th place. To give this context the UK ranks 10th and Spain 52nd.
This is in a great location, just beyond the hustle and bustle of the inner city, but within walking distance of the main train station and amenities like Kleparz market, with all the fresh food stalls.
