“Second oldest part of the Krakow University”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

Attention: this is not Collegium Maius (it's different article here in TA) as the previous review describe it although it is also the same university and very old section of it. Collegium Juridicum (The Law College) is the second oldest part of the Jagiellonian University dating back to early 15th century and is a wealth of ancient architecture: see the renessaince courtyard with collonade, the sculpture by Igor Mitoraj there (the same guy from "The Head" on Rynek) and spot the gothic walls and windows of the whole building from the outside.

Note: you can enter the courtyard for free from Grodzka Street, just opposite the baroque glory of St. Peter and Paul Church with its 12 Desciples statues.

“Excellent museum don't miss this gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

Highly recommend dropping by the university museum. Take the English tour at 11:00am so you can see the beautiful clock outside the library play the university anthem and watch the figures come out and travel around the clock. The building is beautiful inside with many interesting objects. The museum provides a guided tour which is included in the $3 fee!! Don't miss this gem.

“Europe's Oldest University”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

While there is no contained campus, seeing the older buildings in this great educational institutions is wonderful. This is one of the great universities of the entire world. After hearing about it from my grandmother, it was wonderful to see it in real life. A must for everyone who comes to Krakow!
