Krakow News 14 August 2016: Krakow as the capital? / Wisła vs Ruch / Bus stop car crash

Warsaw Krakow… capital?

World Youth Day has now come and gone, and with it public opinion on an important Krakow issue has shifted. Krakow was at the very center of the event, where most visitors saw Krakow as not only the spiritual capital of Poland but also everything else needed for a capital city.

Public opinion has now shifted showing a large amount of people favor the idea of Krakow as the capital versus Warsaw. Krakow was the historical capital of Poland until 1795. The last attempt to move the capital back to Krakow was in 1996, when Mieczysław Czuma (a local Krakow journalist) attempted to insure the city for such a move. [LoveKrakow]

    As much as I love Krakow, I think the situation ought to stay as it is. The administrative costs of any move would surely be astronomical and would there be many benefits? Do we want fewer tourists visiting Warszawa?

    I believe the original reason behind moving the capital from Krakow was because of the much more central location of Warsaw.
