Exceptional wealth of the natural environment, monuments and historical heritage known around the world, i.e. Kraków’s Old City and the Jewish district of Kazimierz, Salt Mines in Wieliczka and Bochnia, the Auschwitz concentration camp, attract 10–12 million guests every year. This is also an academic and scientific hub. Every year, approx. 200,000 young people study at Małopolska universities; research work is conducted in over 100 R&D institutes, in domestic and foreign companies.

On average, Poles spend over 2200 PLN (approx. 510–520 EUR) annually on clothing, footwear and underwear. More than half of this, about 1300 PLN are clothing expenses, 700 PLN is spent on footwear and 500 PLN on sportswear.
Clothing, underwear and footwear are most frequently purchased in shopping centres (65%) and in popular chain stores (61%); the least frequent purchases in this category are made in hypermarkets (8%), discount stores and mail houses (3% each). The community of creators and designers coming from Krakow universities strongly emphasises their presence in the local market. Exotic designs increasingly penetrate the clothing and footwear industry in Małopolska. And because of the widespread use of social media and online communications, local businesses are beginning to spread to clients scattered all over the world through online shops.
