Kraków as a tourist hub

Kraków seems to be a typical ‘must' for foreigners who visit Poland. The second largest Polish city is a place where past meets future. With its Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque churches and modern art (e.g. Manggha Centre of Japanese Art) mediaeval Kraków is certainly the Polish capital of culture. On the other hand, with its numerous students Kraków is definitely an innovative city that houses foreign companies in high- and medium-tech industries and professional services (e.g. Motorola, Google, IBM, MAN).
There is a lot of places worth-visiting in the neighbourhood, e.g. including Jewish Kazimierz, the post-socialist city of Nowa Huta and Wieliczka Salt Mine.
On top of that, during the UEFA European Football Championships in June 2012 Kraków hosts three national football teams (Dutch, English and Italian).
