Exhibition Treasures of Krakow in Bahrain

On December 3, 2019 at the Arabian Regional Center for World Heritage (ARC-WH) in Bahrain Agata Wąsowska-Pawlik, director of the ICC, and prof. Jacek Purchla opened the exhibition entitled "Treasures of Krakow". The exhibition, which presents the history of the city, was prepared by the ICC in cooperation with the Krakow Municipality.

The exhibition The Treasures of Kraków recounts the tale of a city – the seat of Polish kings, former capital of the country, home to one of the oldest European universities and magnet for poets, writers and artists. It was one of the most important Central European metropolises of the Medieval era. For centuries a cosmopolitan, multicultural settlement, open to outside influences, it is also the most Polish of Polish cities. In 1978, Kraków became the first European urban ensemble to be inscribed on the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage List.

Because it is a complement of the Thousand Treasures of Krakow. History and art publication, it can be the key to understanding the phenomenon of popularity that Krakow enjoys today among tourists from around the world and build its image as a modern metropolis that wisely uses the potential of its extraordinary heritage.
