HERITO, no 27: Krakow and the World

HERITO, no 27: Krakow and the World

In this issue we look at Kraków from near and far, explore its unique identity in literature and art, and question whether today it is still a world heritage city or merely a mass tourism destination. We also predict optimum directions for its development.

Two contributions of particular note are the essay by Eva Hoffman, a Polish-American writer and historian of Jewish descent, who remembers Kraków as a place of difficult memory, and a little-known text by the leading English-language writer Colm Tóibín, portraying the city at the foot of Wawel Hill shortly after the fall of the iron curtain.
