About the Event: This imprtant party is organized in Stara Zajezdnia restaurant, located in the very heart of the old Jewish District – Kazimierz, 20 minutes walking distance from the Congress Centre. Stara Zajezdnia is a place that combines history with modernity. It was established in 1913 as a tram depot along with the introduction of broad-gauge tram lines in Krakow. Stara Zajezdnia was the second facility of this type at the time. It ceased functioning as a depot in the early 1960s when trams were removed and gradual deterioration led to its closure in 2007. The renovated building of Stara Zajezdnia is a unique facility. The hall is an example of wooden framework architecture with brick filling, very rare in Krakow, commonly called “Prussian wall”. The Main Hall belongs to an architectural and construction complex which is under legal protection – entered into the register of monuments in 1985 and the World Cultural and Natural Heritage List UNESCO – and recognised as a historical monument.
