Analyze This Class 8

What is the Tree of Cracow?

in the 1750s, in Paris, the government did not allow newspapers.  When people wanted to know what was going on, they went to the Tree of Cracow.  Essentially a tree in Paris’ Palais-Royal gardens, people gathered here to gather knowledge.  It is also noted that the news may or may not have been accurate as foreign diplomats would at times spread rumors there.
