Krakˇw, in English also spelled Krakow or Cracow, pronounced is one of the largest and oldest cities in Poland, and is a popular tourist location, containing a World Heritage Site in the historic centre. Situated on the Vistula river (Polish: Wisła) in the Lesser Poland region, the city dates back to the 7th century. Krakˇw has traditionally been one of the leading centres of Polish academic, cultural and artistic life, and is one of Poland's most important economic centres. It was the capital of Poland from 1038 to 1596.
The city has grown from a Stone Age settlement to Poland's second most important city. It has grown out from a hamlet on Wawel Hill, and was reported as a busy trading centre of Slavonic Europe in 965. With the emergence of the Second Polish Republic, Krakˇw restored its role as a major academic and cultural centre with the establishment of new universities.
