Kraków (Cracow) is the second largest city in Poland (population: approx 1 million). The former capital of Poland is home for a beautiful collection of treasures from Royal Polish, Austro-Hungarian, German, and European-Jewish history. The Jagiellonian University of Krakow (founded 1364) is the second Europe's oldest university still functioning. Many historical personalities studied at the University, ranging from Copernicus to Wislawa Szymborska (Nobel Prize in Literature). Nowadays, Krakow is still developing and gaining on importance as a centre of culture, education, technology and industry. With plenty of architectural monuments and many tourist attractions around, Krakow is among the top business and leisure destinations in Europe, attracting 8 to 10 million visitors each year. With so much culture and science concentrated in one place, Krakow is the perfect location for international meetings.
September is the best time for visiting Krakow. This is the month with mild temperatures (average day/night mean: 10-20 centigrade), the highest count of sunny days. About this time, tree leaves start turning into picturesque gold-yellow, and purple-red. This is also the perfect time for discussing problems of photoallergy - just after summer holidays, when many patients come back from their vacations with photodermatoses. There are no other dermatology or allergology meetings announced for this time.
Krakow will be an unforgettable discovery to you.
