Exhibition and Conference Centre

General information
This building, which houses the Exhibition and Conference Centre at Wawel Royal Castle, was erected in the second half of the 19th century following a design by the Cracovian architect Feliks Księżarski. From World War II until 1991 it housed formal apartments of the Cabinet Offices and then of the President of Poland.
Central location, convenient transport, restaurants on the ground floor, a spacious and  practical interior décor, and the opportunity to use various features arising from unique character of the place, are basic aspects of the complex.
A union of tradition and modernity, extensive conference facilities, and qualified and experienced staff are qualities that assure the success of any undertaking organized here.
We specialise in the organization of conferences, seminars, workshops and presentations. Many Polish and international organisations have taken advantage of our experience. We have entertained  many distinguished figures from the world of politics, culture and business.

Choosing the Conference Centre at Wawel Royal Castle assures prestige and the success of any event.

The Concert for Piotr. S

A concert commemorating Piotr Skrzynecki’s birthday –Cellar under the sign of the Rams (Piwnica pod Baranami)
12 September 2005
For the ninth time, as always on the artist’s birthday, on 12 September, a concert entitled ‘For Piotr S.’ took place, an evening commemorating Piotr Skrzynecki, the creator of the ‘Piwnica pod Baranami’ cabaret, who was its inspiration for over forty years.
And as always, in a unique ambience, we were treated to old songs from ‘Piwnica’ and also new ones, especially prepared for that evening.
