Szpitalna

Address:
ul. Szpitalna, Kraków

Parallel to Floriańska street, it connects the Small Market Square and ul. Mikołajska to św. Ducha Square and ul. Basztowa.

The street takes its name from the medieval hospital and monastery of the Order of the Holy Spirit de Saxia demolished for the construction of the Municipal Theatre. Today the Juliusz Słowacki Theatre is the largest structure by the św. Ducha Square. Opened in 1893, it was modelled on the Opera in Paris. Early in the 20th century, its stage was graced by world premieres of Stanisław Wyspiański’s dramas. The magnificent curtain is the work of Henryk Siemiradzki.

Dom pod Krzyżem – House under the Sign of the Cross, the branch of the Kraków Historical Museum (MHK) devoted to theatre and film collections, stands at No. 21, and No. 30 is the Pollera Hotel, still run by members of the Poller family.
