Poland's most historic city, currently weighing in with 11 major theatres and over 40 museums (see Sightseeing), Krakow has always been the 'Cultural Capital' of Poland, and bore that banner on behalf of all Europe back in 2000. Galleries include Bunkier Sztuki (the Art Bunker), Starmach and Pauza. Classical music fans will be spoilt for choice at the Philharmonic and Kraków Opera, while those who favour something more contemporary should beat a track to the basement of Alchemia or see what's on in Forty Kleparz, Lizard King and Studio Klub. The cultural depth of the city is easily revealed by the range of its festival calendar, with annual standouts like the Street Theatre Festival, Jewish Culture Festival and the Kraków Film Festival, offset by more eccentric endeavours like the annual Dragon and Dachsund Parades (respectively), the Pierogi Festival and Juwenalia (student mayhem!).
