Whoever said, ‘Life’s no picnic’, was wrong, as ‘Kraków Picnic’ (Piknik Krakowski) makes a welcome return for Summer 2019.
Piknik Krakowski is a series of Summer picnics, organised by the city to encourage people to enjoy a healthy, outdoor lifestyle and promote Kraków’s parks and green spaces.
Every weekend, during the Summer, picnics are organised at Kraków’s parks, touring around different parks in June, then alternating between Park Bednarskiego each Saturday and Park Krakowski, each Sunday through July and August.
During the picnics, there will be exhibits, games, food trucks, and ample opportunity for relaxation, sport and recreation.
The picnics include a full programme, between 1000 and 1600, great for kids and families, and for people of any age, who enjoy a healthy, sporty picnic in the park.
This year, there will be themed picnics, to accompany the regular schedule..
