The building of the Collegium Maius is not overly impressive, so it could be easily overlooked. However, once your through the low, arched doorway entrance, you will enter what feels like a secret world. The inner courtyard is a Gothic wonder. Built in the 1300s and still used by the university, there is a small museum to visit as well as a gift shop. Famous alumni here include Nicolas Copernicus. The wonderful motto engraved in stone reads Plus Ratio Quam Vis meaning "Through reason, not force."
