Summer '21

Culture Bathed in Sunlight

We are returning to events with live audiences, to powerful experiences and emotions, to festivals, concerts and outdoor events. Culture blossoms under the Cracovian sun!

In spite of the current circumstances, the panorama of events held in Kraków this summer is impressive: presented outdoors or in a hybrid format and at recently adapted or brand-new venues, they connect with their audiences regardless of adversities and tight restrictions due to the ongoing pandemic.


And while online formats are here to stay – such as the PLAY KRAKÓW platform – this summer we’ll also be able to attend numerous events in person. And organisers have been working hard to make sure the necessary changes don’t affect their audiences’ enjoyment.

Mastercard Off Camera



A review of film productions by the finest filmmakers from Poland and abroad working in independent cinema.

Kraków’s long, rich history makes the entire city into a museum, but it is also constantly changing and evolving in response to the latest needs and challenges. The very concept of cultural heritage – which shapes Kraków’s identity – is fluid, since it means using the past to reach contemporary goals.
