We would like to remind you that in Kraków you will find the oldest university in Poland and, at the same time, one of the oldest ones in this region of Europe. Founded in 1364 by King Casimir the Great, it had only three faculties and was known as the Kraków Academy. After the death of the king, the university ceased to exist. The Academy was rebuilt by the will of Queen Jadwiga, who donated her goods for the development of education. From 1817, the university is called the Jagiellonian University. The most famous graduates of the university include: King John III Sobieski, Jan Kochanowski, Saint John Paul II, Wisława Szymborska, Stanisław Lem and Nicolaus Copernicus – the author of a breakthrough work that changed the history of humanity, “On the Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres”, depicting the heliocentric vision of the world. On the occasion of the 600th anniversary of the renewal of the Jagiellonian University, the university authorities decided to increase the number of buildings belonging to the university, thus creating a Campus, which is located in the vicinity of our Aparthotel.
