The Summer School venue is just a short walk from the city’s medieval Market Square (Rynek Główny) and old buildings of Jagiellonian University to the Royal Wawel Castle (Polish renaissance royal castle) and even to the ancient Jewish Quarter (Kazimierz) where you may find the heart of Kraków's bohemian character.
