Extracurricular activities include language partners, sports and cultural events with local students, as well as campus-wide activities like music and art festivals. In addition to these activities, Kraków is host to an annual calendar of festivals. In the summer, you can participate in the Jewish festival and enjoy alternative and classical music at Wianki, the city’s large annual music celebration.
USAC also takes advantage of Kraków’s unique location to give you firsthand exposure to local culture. Art and culture related course visits could include sites like the National Museum, Ethnographic Museum, Rynek Underground Museum, Wawel Castle, and MOCAK Museum of Contemporary Art. Courses more focused on economics and history could visit Kazimierz (the former Jewish district of Kraków), Schindler’s factory, Nowa Huta quarter and more.
