It also shows the importance of the medieval capital of Poland in the activities of the Hanseatic Union. The collected exhibits, such as coins from the 14th century, ornaments and ceramic vessels, confirm the tradition of the European cultural and trade exchange lasting for hundreds of years. The exhibition also introduces visitors to the everyday life in Kraków from a few centuries ago. When visiting the exhibition "Following the traces of European identity of Kraków", you can feel the atmosphere of the medieval market square.
