“BLACK AND WHITE PAST; PRESENT IN COLOUR” Part 6
Although in Kraków we value tradition and take pride in our past, we also do acknowledge the constant changes taking place around us. Buildings are rising, we are driving down brand new streets and historic spots are being restored to glory. Find out the differences between Kraków A.D. 2000 and the city’s current self by visiting the open-air exhibition by the Wyspiański Pavilion – “Black and White Past, Present in Colour; or what has changed in Kraków in the 21st century”.
Kraków continues to focus on communal housing. The Przyzby-Zalesie housing estate, completed in 2020, is one of the largest investments of its kind, with 357 units in modern apartment blocks covering more than 14 000 m² of floor space; 20 of these have been adapted for the needs of tenants with physical disabilities.
Sport in Kraków is not only about major international competitions in volleyball, handball, basketball or ice hockey, but above all about the daily recreational physical activity of residents. More than 230 kilometres of cycling infrastructure has been built in the last 20 years - in 2002 there were only 30 kilometres (today there are almost 270!). In addition, the network of indoor swimming pools is being expanded - 10 new facilities have been built and the swimming pool at the Zespół Szkół Ogólnokształcących Mistrzostwa Sportowego has been extensively renovated. Soon, every neighbourhood will have its own place to swim!
