All Around Nativity Scenes. Walking in Kraków

5 January 2018

All Around Nativity Scenes – this year’s event comes under the banner Nativity Scene-Makers for Our City and Our Country, recalling the centenary of Poland regaining its independence in 2018.

As a result of the collaboration between local businesses and the Historical Museum of the City of Kraków with the Krakow Festival Office, you will be able to admire 27 nativity scenes from the museum’s collection, set up in shopfronts throughout the Old Town and beyond. They were all awarded prizes and distinctions in the Kraków Nativity Scene Contest between 1980 and 2007. Additionally, dozens of locations across the city present large (up to two-metretall), double-sided nativity scenes made especially by artists working today. We are pleased to inform you that Albertina Restaurant & Wine is a partner of this event.

We start our walk at the foot of Wawel Hill, at 11 Powiśle Street. We then head along the Royal Route, through the heart of the Old Town and the Main Market Square, towards the Barbican. From there it’s just a few steps to Celestat in the Strzelecki Garden (16 Lubicz Street), hosting this year’s post-contest exhibition.

Visit Dominikańska 3. A very special place is waiting for you!

26 February 2017

Krakow… Every time I’m here, the city surprises and delights me with something new, which then stays with me for a long time. I went there recently to experience the unique atmosphere of Krakow again, to do some shopping at the market, and just to walk around the little streets and enjoy the Old Town. The weather wasn’t very inviting – windy and rainy – so we quickly decided to find warmth and food in some original place. When I saw the beautiful Krakow nativity scene in the window of Albertina Restaurant & Wine at Dominikańska street, my intuition told me it would be a good choice, and we went in. It was a bit like love at first sight – Albertina put a spell on me, and I soon realized why. It is a place completely defined by the passion of people who really love what they do.
