Krakow is one of the largest academic centres in Poland. Twenty-three higher education institutions operate here, including the oldest and most eminent of them, the Jagiellonian University (Universitas Jagellonica Cracoviensis), which was established in 1364 as the Studium Generale. It is the second oldest university in Central and Eastern Europe after Prague’s Charles University. Over 200,000 students study in each per year, helping Krakow attract great talent from a variety of disciplines.
