The 10th UNESCO Network Meeting of Creative Cities held in Östersund, Sweden finished on 16 th September. 250 delegates from 116 cities representing 54 countries were discussing sustainable development of cities based on culture and creativity and shared their best practices in this field. Two Krakow` s initiatives were presented at the Meeting - Czytaj PL (Read PL) and the support program for cultural activities in bookshops. Krakow was also elected to remain in the position President of the Cities of Literature Steering Committee for another 2-year term!
During the WYD the residents and guests could notice outstanding personages associated with Krakow looking down at them from the citylights. The famous people chosen for the promotional campaign “ Krakow. Cradle of Genius” included also the symbolic no. 1 WYD Pilgrim – Pope Francis. At the farewell meeting held in the Metropolitan Curia on Sunday, July 31, Mayor Jacek Majchrowski handed over this artistic portrait to the Holy Father.
Mayor Jacek Majchrowski presented Pope Francis with 25 ceramic pigeons. The figurines symbolizing the universal Christian values, but also Krakow’s Main Market Square are the personal gifts which will be brought by the Pope to Vatican as souvenirs for his co-workers. It was a souvenir selected by Pope Francis himself from the presented options!
