Cracow In May Won T Be Better

The action takes place down in mellow Kazimierz on Plac Nowy, and the guzzling is usually accompanied by live music from a number of enthusiastic bands. Best of all, everyone is a judge, as the soups are all free to be sampled - until they run out!

In the same month an increasingly fashionable fixture on the international scene is the Krakow Film Festival that concentrates on short films, documentaries and animated features, There are different categories and prizes, from Polish to International. There is also the possibility to attend to the press conferences and meet the actors and the film-makers for some chit-chat.

Other thing not to be missed is the Krakow's annual Month of Photography. Various unusual venues in bars, clubs, breweries, cafes for dozen of exhibitions throughout the month. If you're a student or you have friends in Krakow, May is the best time of the year to be around for an ancient and venerable tradition: the Juwenalia! For a week parties erupt across Cracow and most of them are open to outsiders.

Until the 4th of May at the Arsenal of the Czartoryski Museum Arsenal (ul. Pijarska 8) will host twenty works by the master sculptor Antonio Canova (1757-1822). One of the most eminent representatives of classicism, the Italian sculptor worked in Venice, Rome, Wien and Paris . Inspired most by Hellenistic sculpture, most of his works relate to mythology and the main attraction should be a marble sculpture of Prince Henry Lubomirski as Cupid.

And after a long day visiting, tastino, listening, cherishing all Cracow ha sto offer in may, we recommend an after dinner at the Harris Piano Jazz Club, one of the best places to head for if you're in search of an evening of quality jazz. Many local talents have performed there, whilst a host of established stars regularly drop by to have a jam. For classic jazz, be there on Tuesdays; for jam sessions on Thursdays, whilst Fridays for Blues. On Saturdays there are big concerts from well known Polish and international names. Small cover charge is the norm.
