Krzemionki

Address:
ul. Krzemionki, Kraków

The complex of limestone formations looking over Podgórze is called Krzemionki and reaches 270 metres above sea level in its highest point. This original, diversified geological structure with faults, gullies and karst formations has always created a sense of mystery and made this unique place even more picturesque.

In 1896, Wojciech Bednarski landscape park was opened in Krzemionki. The park is neighboured by the KS "Korona" stadium raised in 1927, and by a state-of-the-art centre of the TVP Kraków television, built in the years 1966-1968. Unfortunately, due to heavy car traffic, a multi-lane road had to be built on Powstańców Śląskich Avenue (1977-1978), which divided Krzemionki into two parts.

Apart from the picturesque view of hills and the TVP Kraków tower, the avenue also features a mural that runs along the road, depicting the centuries-old history of Kraków. The mural, called Silva Rerum, was made in 2007 by a group of anonymous Kraków street artists basing on the concept of Jerzy Rojkowski to commemorate the 750th anniversary of the city's foundation.
