Architectural accessibility

The facilities of the International Cultural Centre in Krakow are accessible to people with mobility difficulties. You can enter the building and all its public areas with an assistance dog and a guide dog.

ENTRANCE TO THE BUILDING

The access to the building has the required width, min. 1.5 m. No moving parts and no fixed barriers. A small ramp leads to the front door. On the right side of the door there is a video intercom adapted for people with physical disabilities, which can be used to call a security guard.

INDUCTION LOOPS

  • Stationary induction loops are installed in the building in the following locations:
  • Concierge
  • Gallery – customer service station / bookstore
  • Library

BARRIERS

The majority of communication routes in the building are barrier-free. The exceptions are:

  • three steps leading to the cloakroom and two steps leading to the landing in the conference room (ground floor),
  • two steps in the viewing conference room (outbuilding, fifth floor),
  • stairs leading to the footbridge connecting the two parts of the building (third floor - main building / fourth floor – outbuilding).

ELEVATORS

All other places are accessible from the ground floor level by means of two elevators located in the main building and in the outbuilding. Elevators provide access to all the ICC facilities, such as the Gallery, the Library, and the historic cellars. There are manoeuvring spaces of appropriate dimensions in front of the elevators.

TOILETS FOR PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES

There are three toilets for people with disabilities located in the building (first floor - Gallery, ground floor - foyer of the Conference Room, and Library - third floor of the outbuilding). They have the required dimensions and manoeuvring space.

ASSISTANCE

Due to the large size of the building and numerous communication routes the space may be difficult to navigate independently (especially for those with visual impairment). For this purpose, our staff provides support in moving around the facility – please inform us about such a need by going to the reception desk, which is located approx. 15m down the corridor, on the right.

RESTING AREAS

Spaces that require covering longer distances (main entrance, hall) are equipped with places to rest: chairs (with armrests that facilitate getting up or changing seats).
