L'entrée en vigueur de la BAEC (Banque de données des actes de l'Etat civil) pose quelques problèmes. Les autorités fédérales mettent tout en oeuvre pour les résoudre. Les commandes d'actes d'état civil peuvent être introduites mais le délai de délivrance ne peut pour l'instant être assuré. Veuillez nous excuser pour ce contretemps.

cracovieKraków is a city of almost 750,000 inhabitants and is probably one of the oldest cities in Poland. Indeed, it was the capital from 1320 to 1596. It has a wealth of historical buildings, including the 14th century gothic cathedral, dedicated to Saint Stanislas, as well as palaces, old houses, churches, galleries and museums.

Thanks to this multitude of cultural gems, it was listed as UNESCO World Heritage in 1978. It is nicknamed "Florence of the North" or "Polish Rome".
Furthermore, it is home to one of the oldest universities in Central Europe: the Jagellonne University founded in 1364.
