Winter is the perfect time to visit the latest exhibitions at Kraków’s museums to admire new or recently enhanced venues and galleries. Fans of literature and themed meetings head to the Potocki Palace or artistic coffee shops, while cinemagoers enjoy the Krakow Mountain Festival and the Silent Film Festival. Even the early nights have their good side, giving us an opportunity to see the fairytale illuminations at the Stanisław Lem Garden of Experiences.
All these events make winter more bearable, and it comes to a symbolic end in Kraków with the Misteria Paschalia Festival marking the start of Holy Week and Easter. The event is another great excuse to visit the city’s many concert halls, as well as churches where sacral Baroque – and all other music – sounds truly beautiful.
