Krakow: Polish Dinner & Folk Show

An encounter with Polish folklore through music brings together the tradition and culture of the country. A performance by a folk band combines exceptional dancing, singing, and regional costume. For everyone who is willing to experience the true tradition that has been the result of the changes that appeared among people of Poland through ages, this activity is obligatory! During performances, guests are offered an opportunity to try the traditional Polish cuisine, which makes the whole experience one of a kind.

We invite you to have an insight into the most Polish part of our ancestry in two options:

  • OPTION 1 is a group offer where along with other guests you will be able to be a part of the show along with the band consisting of professional musicians, a pair of dancers and a Lajkonik (one of the city’s unofficial symbols; a bearded man dressed in Mongol attire, with a wooden horse around his waist).It is held at Jama Michalika, a fabled cafe situated in a 15th-century building at Florianska 45 Str.
  • OPTION 2 is a private show conducted by a dancing pair while having dinner. This one is recommended for all those who’d rather avoid crowds and prefer just admiring the show instead of taking part in it. This option is held at Morskie Oko, a restaurant that exceptionally resembles the unique spirit of a highlander’s inn. The restaurant is located in an art nouveau building at Szczepanski 8 Sq.,
