Kazimierz tea house
It has to be the main square, it has everything, fantastic restraunts at very cheap prices, a great deal of shops, fantastic bars, and an excellent internet cafe. There is an indian tea house in the Kazimierz area just near the Jewish museum. They do a whole range of teas from all over the world, and have many different rooms to sit in. Some indian style where you take off your shoes and ring a bell for service, or more traditional style with chairs and tables. Really is a must to find and enjoy the atmosphere.
The St. Mary's Churh is a gothic church in the Market Square. From the tower of St. Mary's Church the hourly bugle-call is played and then dramatically cut, just as it was cut when the arrow struck the trumpeter, as he was sounding the alarm during the Tartar raid.

From 16th to 19th May -...
From 16th to 19th May - Crackfilm. Crackfilm is one of the oldest and the largest event of the marketing, advertising, and media branch in Poland.The first event with the Crackfilm logo was held in Krakow in February 1991 under the name Ogólnopolskie Sympozjum Reklamy (Polish Advertising Symposium). The man behind the advertising meetings in Krakow was Les³aw Wilk who prepared first festivals together with Piotr Wasilewski who was responsible for the content of the programme. The first Crackfilms pointed the directions for the future of the advertising market, and the festival lobbies reverberated and buzzed with disputes.
Together with the meetings, the branch awards arrived. In 1991 participants of the Festival of Commercial Film were awarded with statuettes of Cyklop (Cyclops). Tytan (Titan) didn’t appear until 1992, and has since then been the name of the Festival trophy. Since 1996 Tytan has been awarded by a 100-person-strong jury recommended by International Association of Advertising (IAA) in Poland.
Given number 13, the 2002 Festival introduces the new formula, making the event the meeting ground for the industries involved in marketing communication. The formula is the result of acknowledging the suggestions and claims that the advertising world made about Crackfilm.
The programme of the Festival contains exhibitions, programme sessions, workshops, and – quite naturally – film shows. A special guest is the Russian advertising market. There will be exhibitions of advertising and propaganda posters, review of the Commercial Festival in Moscow, and a session devoted to Russian advertising. Apart from these, you will see the screenings of the best social advertising, a digest of films on social and civic actions, theme shows of advertising films prepared by the best Polish producers, and examples of non-professional advertising form Poland and Russia. During the festival gala (18th May) the best advertising firms and the best promotional campaigns of the previous year will be awarded the Tytans. At the same time GoleAd’Ora prizes will be awarded to the best advertisements making use of sport resources. In Moliere pub, during the whole festival, exhibition Pocztówka i plakat w kampaniach reklamowych (Post-Card and Poster in Advertising Campaigns) will be open. Another exhibition titled Rosyjski plakat reklamowy i propagandowy (Russian Advertising and Propaganda Poster) will be open in the ARS cinemas. Film presentations will be held in the ARS cinemas, and the press bureau will operate in the offices of a coorganiser of the Festival – Krakow 2000 Bureau. The Festival happenings will go forth to rule the Main Market Square of Krakow as well as the city’s clubs and pubs (the official festival club is the Pod Jaszczurami; entrance only for accredited personnel). The six-metre-high statue of Tytan placed in the Main Market Square will mark the organisational bureau of the Festival. It is there that accreditations will be issued and information will be available (from 4 pm on 16th May to 8 pm on 19th May).
