Children’s Day in Kraków (Dzień Dziecka)

Kraków events and attraction on children’s day 2023

Living in Poland you soon learn that the Poles (and, to be fair, we foreigners) really, really enjoy their holidays.  One of the kids favourites is Children’s Day (Dzień Dziecka), which this year falls on Friday 1st June.

Families treat their kids, with ice cream, trips to the cinema, small gifts, or whatever their kid has hinted, begged or pleaded for in the weeks and days leading up to children’s day.

There are also a multitude of special events organised for children’s day, from big events, to special offers, attractions or entertainment in many shops, restaurants, museums, etc.

We’re just back from a trip to the cinema and saw kids day posters all over the adjoining shopping centre with various attractions, (one down side of children’s day, is letting the kids choose the film, they want to see, in our case Fast & Furious – not my thing, it made me want to leave the cinema fast, and furious at wasting 2 hrs of my life, but the kids enjoyed it – that’s the essence of children’s day).

The following summary of events was taken from

The highlight of attractions is the weekend of June 3-4. It is then that the Great Dragon Parade , adored by Cracovians and visitors to the city , and the Open Day of the Municipality take place .

Krakow’s cultural institutions have also prepared a very rich offer on the occasion of Children’s Day. We present proposals of theatres, museums and cultural centre’s. There will also be plenty of attractions proposed by the Krakow Library, Sinfonietta Cracovia and sports proposals.

Everyone will find something for themselves – regardless of age, city district or interests. See for yourself!
