A beautiful been we would never have found unless we had been on a tour. Beautiful, peaceful and rich in history.
Try to go on the full guided tour which takes you through the whole building. This is well worth the time after visiting the usual main attractions
The courtyard impresses immediately you enter Collegium Maius & the historic entertaining clock should not be missed. We arrived spot on time for the 11am performance! The tours of the library etc are in various languages, check in advance & don't miss this!
We reserved our spot for the 1pm English tour which brought us through the library and many of the historic rooms unavailable on the 30-minute tour. An extremely knowledgeable, multilingual tour guide deftly handled the running commentary of a know-it-all visitor who seemed determined to catch him off guard (to no avail!) Great insights regarding some of the university's best... More

It's good to know the building is still regularly used today as... More

To be able to go to this university, people come from all over the world. It is truly a wonder to walk around. Because of hard economic times, there are quite a few students that obtain careers outside of Poland...Even some Poles work in Norway, England, etc and fly home on weekends.
It is slow season here in Krakow, and I just completed an English language tour of the museum at the university. There were only a few people on the tour, which was great. The guides had excellent knowledge of the museum and delivered the information in a unique manner. The museum itself was the most interesting place I saw near... More
