It is not the first time that the International Cultural Centre has been discovering the treasures of Polish art, on this occasion uncovered in the Macedonian capital – Skopje. In 1963 the tragedy of the city that was left in ruins by an earthquake shocked entire world. Poland offered assistance in rebuilding the city, while the experience of architects who had earlier rebuilt Warsaw proved invaluable.
The Treasures of Kraków
01.06.2019 - 30.08.2019
The exhibition The Treasures of Kraków recounts the tale of a city – the seat of Polish kings, former capital of the country, home to one of the oldest European universities and magnet for poets, writers and artists. It was one of the most important Central European metropolises of the Medieval era. For centuries a cosmopolitan, multicultural settlement, open to outside influences, it is also the most Polish of Polish cities. In 1978, Kraków became the first European urban ensemble to be inscribed on the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage List.
