I want to convince you to visit a great place situated in Kazimierz, full of art but also full of travels and meetings with interesting people. I visited Artefakt for the first time when they were located a little bit away from the most known places in Krakow; moving to the much bigger place in Kazimierz district was a great idea. The name of the place you can translate as “shot of art” and what you will find here depends on you and your expectations.
In Artefakt they organize travel slideshows (every Monday and very often Thursdays), days with board games (every Tuesday), meetings with interesting people, concerts, political debates and exhibitions showed in their gallery “3 windows”. I am a big fan of everything connected with travels – here you can listen to interesting stories from all over the world, you can see beautiful photos and meet people who will tell you how to travel with low budgets.
But Artefakt is not only a place to have encounters with art – it’s a great place to meet up with friends. You can order great beers (try bottled ones from small, Polish breweries), tea, coffee and even some snacks like hot baguette. The people working here have a great sense of humor. It all creates a whole which you need to see, taste and feel.
