venue

we will meet at Plaża Krakow located in the heart of Kraków, right by the Vistula River, with a stunning view on the Wawel Royal Castle. if you plan sightseeing, you will need only 15 minutes to walk to Kazimierz, the Jewish District, and 8 minutes by a tram to get to the Square. cool, right?

Address:
Ludwinowska 2
30-331 Kraków, Poland
