In the last weekend of June there is an excellent air picnic in Krakow, the greatest event of that kind in the southern Poland. It is organized in the Czyzyny Airport, not so far from the center and Old Town. It is rather family meeting, with many attractions for adults and kids.

The main point af agenda are shows in the air - jet shows, acrobatics, parachuting jumping, gliders and more. During shows you can listen to the lectures (in Polish) about aviation and aircraft in Poland and Krakow, see many machines and the ground or buy something from the stall on the fair (souvenirs and press connected to the aviation, but also clotches, parfums, toys for children...). There is also a draught beer for adults, but this year to buy it you had to stand in a long line.

It is not bad idea to take something to sit, like a blanket, since shows are from the morning to evening, and everywhere around is only the grass.

As I remember this year (2006), entrance fee was 8 zl (2 EUR) for all day - the whole picnic went on two days, but on Suturday and Sunday program was very similar.
