I just love this place! Trelkovsky Cafe may not be a very famous spot on Krakow’s map, but its location and atmosphere 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 attended a language course nearby, I used to 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 days, there is the possibility to sit at one of the tables in their little summer garden. It was opened recently for the summer season, but don’t worry – in case the day is colder, there should be enough space inside, although the spot may sometimes get crowded in the evenings.
