Kraków is one of the largest and oldest cities in Poland, with a population of almost 800 000. The historic centre of Kraków, the former capital of Poland, is situated at the foot of the Royal Wawel Castle. The 13th -century merchants' town has Europe's largest market square and numerous historical houses, palaces and churches with their magnificent interiors. Kraków is also known for the remnants of the 14th -century fortifications and the mediaeval site of Kazimierz with its ancient synagogues in the southern part of the town as well as the Gothic Cathedral, where the kings of Poland were buried. Kraków has traditionally been one of the leading centres of Polish scientific, cultural and artistic life. It is a major attraction for local and international tourists, hosting 7 million visitors annually. In 1978, UNESCO added Kraków's historic centre, which includes the Old Town, Kazimierz and the Wawel Castle, to the list of World Heritage Sites. Each year over 200 000 students study at as many as 23 universities and colleges in Kraków, constituting 10% of all students in Poland.

The Henryk Niewodniczański Institute of Nuclear Physics Polish Academy of Sciences (IFJ PAN) is an institution with a large scientific and technical potential involved in both theoretical and experimental research. IFJ PAN carries out basic and applied research in physics, with emphasis on nuclear physics. The important branch of science in the Institute is also particle physics. There are six departments grouped within the Division of Particle Physics and Astrophysics that are involved in the following experiments: ATLAS, LHCb, BELLE, Pierre AUGER, WARP, ICARUS, T2K, LAGUNA, HESS, ZEUS, H1, PHOBOS, ILC, SuperB etc. The current general director of the Institute is Professor Marek Jeżabek. The Institute's premises of 8 ha are located in Bronowice - the western part of Kraków. Several buildings host laboratories, a lecture hall, seminar rooms and workshop for production of scientific apparatus. In particular the Bronowice Cyclotron Centre, engaged in the application of cyclotrons in scientific research and tumour radiotherapy, is a part of the IFJ PAN. The Institute has personnel of around 500 people, including 41 full professors, over 30 associate professors and 147 doctors. Each year the Institute organizes and co-organizes about 20 international and national scientific conferences and workshops. One of the largest conferences organized recently by the Institute was the 2009 Europhysics Conference on High Energy Physics (EPS HEP), with the participation of about 700 scientists from all over the world as well as the CERN Council Open Symposium on European Strategy for Particle Physics, 10-12 Sept. 2012, hosting over 500 participants.
