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.

On Wednesday, December 4 at the Bahrain National Museum, Agata Wąsowska-Pawlik gave a lecture entitled Culture and city - the case of Krakow. In her speech she presented the strengths and potential of the material and intangible heritage of Krakow, which has been on the UNESCO List since 1978. By presenting various dimensions of cultural life and sustainable protection of monuments, she tried to answer the question whether the industries related to cultural heritage can be seen as an opportunity or a burden for the development of the city, especially in the context of impact on the quality of life of residents.
