The Krakow Literary Walks 2016 are starting!

This year, there will be roads still untraveled, but there also will be familiar, already well-trodden paths. Literary walks, organised once a month, are an opportunity to carefully explore the literary map of the city. Two Krakow guides – Anna Hojwa and Agnieszka Pudełko – will take the curious to where literature was created and lives in Krakow.


In the rich walking plan for 2016 are women’s walks – in the footsteps of Krakow’s female writers and of course the most important woman of Polish literature – Wisława Szymborska. There is also a Baltazar Gąbka walk, in theory for children, even though we already know there are adults impatiently waiting for it.

We will also meet foreign-language writers who worked in the capital of Małopolska, we’ll explore the winding paths of the rebellious poets. We’ll also visit the nooks and crannies associated with Stanisław Lem – his home and work, as well as places commemorating him.

Admission to all the walks is free, but due to the high interest, prior registration is required.
