Juliusz Słowacki Theatre is one of the most renowned playhouses in Poland and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Located in a 19th-century Eclectic building at the very heart of Krakow’s Old Town, it is one of the architectural and cultural highlights of the historic city centre.

Named after Juliusz Słowacki, a Polish Romantic poet and playwright, the theatre has ever since been associated with the key figures in the history of Polish literature and drama such as Stanisław Wyspiański, S.I. Witkiewicz, Helena Modrzejewska, Tadeusz Kantor, and many others. With the main auditorium offering 540 seats for the spectators, the fresco decorations by Anton Tuch and Henryk Siemiradzki’s famous painted curtain, the theatre’s interiors are as impressive as its exterior.
