Cracrow is listed by UNESCO

Poland's most treasured icon is the Black Madonna. It can be found in the Jasna Gora, a holy shrine. The Black Madonna was rescued from Jerusalem in A.D 70, but nobody knows where it was originally made, or when it was made. It is important to the Polish culture because it is said that it was painted by St. Joseph himself.
Polish money is called zloty. Polish currency pictures famous and important people, similar to how we do it in the U.S. The zloty pictured here is the 20000 zloty, with Marie Curie on it (Nobel prize winner), the 5000 zloty, with Fredric Chopin (composer), and the 1000 zloty, with Mikolaj Kopernick (astronomer).
