With over 40 parks and five large nature reserves, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the outdoors in beautiful surroundings. However, when winter arrives, culture lovers will be at home in one of the many castles or museums, including the innovative Rynek underground exhibition with holograms, projectors and fog machines recreating the atmosphere of Krakow's medieval history. For lively nights out, you can find the thriving café scene as well as restaurants, pubs and clubs in Krakow's Old Town, where the numerous palaces, churches and theaters have rendered it a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The main industries in Krakow include the manufacturing of tobacco, steel and pharmaceuticals, the service sector and research into sustainable energy. Business, finance and software also play significant roles with banking headquarters and over 50 multinational companies in the city, including Google, IBM, and Aon Hewitt. Tourism is also a growing industry, but expats hoping to make a new career here will need an understanding of the language, as English is only spoken amongst younger citizens.
