Explore Cracow - festivals and major events

You will never be bored in Cracow. Both adults, youth and children will find plenty of entertainment in the city. There are some hints below for spending time in Cracow throughout the entire year.


If you're tired of sightseeing, you can sit in Jama Michalika - one of the oldest cafés in Krakow (at Florianska 45), drink coffee, eat ice cream, and listen to live piano music. Jama Michalika continues its pre-war tradition, when the Zielony Balonik cabaret performed here. Today you can watch performances by many Polish stage and performing artists here.

We can also go to the Krakow Zoo.
