At the beginning of 1990s, Poland underwent major economic change. Many inefficient state enterprises and factories went bankrupt. The situation soon improved thanks to foreign investment and the rapid growth of the small and medium enterprise sector.

Cracow, the most beautiful Polish city with one of the oldest universities in Europe, lies on the banks of the Vistula river in the southern region of Poland. Cracow is a major tourist destination, each year playing host to numerous cultural events and festivals. In 2000 it was chosen as one of the European Capitals of Culture for the millennium year.

There are direct flights to Cracow from many European cities, as well as from New York and Chicago. Alternatively, one can fly to Warsaw and then continue to Cracow on LOT Polish Airlines' domestic service (six per day, 40 minute flight time) or by train (2 hours 30 minutes).
