"The dragon parade" Festivals Tip by kolabor

Festivals, Krakow: 6 reviews and 5 photos

  The show seen from the other side of the river
by kolabor

Every year Kraków, the city which has long tradition of dragon-fighting (in legends only, but still:P) and a statue of the legendary dragon, hosts Days of the Dragon. It's organized late in may (this year 29-30th). In the main market square there's a big parade of dragons created by students, companies and other habitants, on saturday there's a picnic on the boulevards of Wisla next to Wawel, which ends late into the night with a "dragon show" with giant dragon (and other monster:P) figures, floats, lights and fireworks. If you're around it's a great idea for a nice evening...

Address: Wisla boulevards
Directions: Just past the old town, upon Wawel

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
