It's a historic 19th-century venue staging concerts, theatrical performances & other events. It's located near St. Florian's Gate and down from St. Mary's Basilica. It's an amazing building with beautiful architecture both exterior and interior.

A gorgeous old style baroque theatre we came upon while walking around the parks of Krakow. Near Florian’s Gate. Next visit we will investigate attending whatever is happening while visiting. We found it too late.
