Royal Capital City of Kraków

Cracow, one of the oldest cities in Poland and the country’s former capital, combines rich cultural heritage, multicultural direction, and modern ambience. It is the second largest city in Poland, with 800,000 inhabitants and more than 11 million tourists visiting every year. A place with experience in hosting large international events.

Cracow’s Old Town hosting the Wawel Royal Castle was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site more than 40 years ago. It has been named the European Capital of Culture in 2020 and UNESCO City of Literature and is a place rich with cultural heritage and an opinion of being a magical place to visit.

It shares truly Wikimedian dedication to knowledge, by being home to the oldest Polish, and the world’s 13th oldest university, the Jagiellonian University, and also the AGH University of Science and Technology, the largest technical university in Poland.

Naming itself an Open City, Cracow draws from its multicultural history and supports diversity, inclusion, and a welcoming atmosphere for everyone, and by that, is a great place for a global and diverse Wikimedia community to meet.

Cracow is situated in the heart of the Central Eastern European (CEE) region, which is home to a vibrant, engaged Wikimedia community, with a longstanding history of collaboration and mutual learning. And on exactly this regional spirit, we would like the event to grow. Our intention is to work with volunteers from different CEE countries, using their diverse skills, strengths, and creativity. Taking inspiration from Cracow’s multicultural atmosphere we will work across the region and borders to organize a strongly collaborative Wikimania, for the global Wikimedia community and provide an event-shaping learning chance for the region.


The 2024 Core Organizing Team will have the privilege to shadow and learn from the host of the 18th edition, ESEAP between April 2023 till the Wikimania 2023 concludes. The official host handover will happen on the last day of Wikimania on 19 August 2023. Technical transition such as site page management and event document handover will proceed thereafter.
