The town has grown from a Stone Age settlement to Polands second most important city. It began as a hamlet on Wawel Hill and was already being reported as a busy trading centre of Central Europe in 965. With the establishment of new universities and cultural venues at the emergence of the Second Polish Republic in 1918 and throughout the 20th century, Krakow reaffirmed its role as a major national academic and artistic centre. The town features apopulation of about 770,000, with approximately 8 million additional people living within a 100 kilometer (62 mi) radius of its main square.After the invasion of Poland by Nazi Germany at the start of World War II, the newly defined Distrikt Krakau (Krakow District) became the capital of Germanys General Government. The Jewish population of the town was forced into a walled zone known as the Krakow Ghetto, from which they were sent to German extermination camps such as the nearby Auschwitz never to return, and the Nazi concentration camps like Płaszow.In 1978, Karol Wojtyła, archbishop of Krakow, was elevated to the papacy as Pope John Paul II — the first Slavic pope ever, and the first non-Italian pope in 455 years. Also that year, UNESCO approved the first ever sites for its new World Heritage List, including the entire Old Town in inscribing Krakows Historic Centre. Krakow is classified as a global town with the ranking of high sufficiency by GaWC. Its extensive cultural heritage across the epochs of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture have the Wawel Cathedral and the Royal Castle on the banks of the Vistula, the St. Marys Basilica, Saints Peter and Paul Church and the largest medieval market square in Europe, the Rynek Głowny. Krakow is home to Jagiellonian University, one of the oldest universities within the world and traditionally Polands most reputable institution of higher learning.
In 2000, Krakow was named European Capital of Culture. In 2013 Krakow was officially approved as a UNESCO City of Literature. The town hosted the World Youth Day in July 2016."
