I just love this place! Trelkovsky Cafe may not be a very famous spot on Krakow’s map, but its location and climate always make me come back.
Let’s start with the location. Trelkovsky is located near the student campus of Krakow’s University of Science and Technology. A five minute walk from the very busy and crowded Plac Inwalidów, a popular interchange junction. Situated at one of the busiest streets in Krakow, Trelkovsky is an unexpectedly quiet and peaceful place. Supposedly the villa, where the cafe is located, used to serve as the Wehrmacht’s residence during the Second World War.
Since I attend a language course nearby, I pass Trelkovsky cafe by at least twice a week and I really enjoy its old fashioned climate with smooth jazz in the background. Music played inside reflects the climate and style in which the cafe is decorated – old carpets and antiques present all around make its atmosphere unique.
During warmer summer days, there is a possibility to sit at one of the tables in their little summer garden. It’s now closed for the winter season, but no worries – there should be enough space inside, although it sometimes may get crowded in the evenings.
