There is the legend that it was built on the cave of a dragon whom the mythical King Krak had slain. However, the first official mention of the name was in 966 by a Jewish merchant from Spain, who described it as an important centre of trade in Slavonic Europe.
The 16th century was Krakow's golden age. Under the influence of the joint Polish-Lithuanian Jagiellonian dynasty, Krakow became a centre of science and the arts.
There were built the concentration camps near Krakow during WW II, including Plaszow and Auschwitz. After German withdrawal, the city escaped complete destruction and many buildings were saved.
In 1978, UNESCO placed Krakow on the World Heritage Sites list.
In the same year, the Archbishop of Krakow, Karol Wojtyla, was made Pope John Paul II.
It is the most visited place in Poland.
