On the stage


For years, Kraków has been the centre of culture, a city that like a magnet attracts artists, cultural personalities and other talented individuals who want to develop their artistic abilities. The abundance of universities and colleges, the diversity of monuments and museums create a unique atmosphere which is the source of inspiration for many artists.

If we were to name some of the well-known figures who over the years lived and worked in Kraków, we would certainly need to mention such personalities as Jan Matejko, Stanisław Wyspiański, Jacek Malczewski, Józef Mehoffer, Wisława Szymborska, Czesław Miłosz, Adam Zagajewski and of course the great Pole, Pope John Paul II, who for many years was the Cardinal of Kraków.

The contemporary Kraków is famous for its theatres, concert halls, the opera house, frequent concerts and many open air entertainments. But it is also filled with popular art, which can be often seen on the streets of the city, thanks to the countless street musicians, performers and painters who every day display their art on the historic city walls near St. Florian's Gate (Brama Floriańska).

It is here, in Kraków, that with a bit of luck, at the coffee table just right next to ours we can see such famous artists as Jerzy Stuhr, Jerzy Trela, Grzegorz Turnau, Andrzej Sikorowski, Nigel Kennedy, Anna Dymna and many others. And if you do not lack the talent, perhaps when returning from an evening presentation or a night concert and inspired by the unique atmosphere of the city, you can create here the best verses of your life ...
