Underground Museum of Krakow


Home > Culture > Museum & Galleries > Underground Museum of Krakow

Krakow is so old that no one can fully grasp its immense history. The Krak’s Mound even remembers the times of the Celts and the legendary Avars. Krakow was also home to the Slavic dukes and kings who decided on the shape of the city that was to become the capital of one of the most powerful states in medieval Europe.

The underground museum was opened to visitors at the beginning September 2010 and is the first of its kind in Poland, and unique on a global scale too. The ‘In the Footsteps of Krakow’s European Identity’  exhibition is a multimedia show as well as a journey through time – allowing visitors to not only see the history of the origins of the legendary city, but also to touch them.
In the archaeological park located 4 meters below the surface of Krakow’s Market Square, you will see a section of medieval Krakow come alive, something as yet unprecedented in Europe. The historic monuments that were found there are evidence of the continuity of trade, pursued here uninterruptedly for over 800 years.
