Frequently Asked Questions

When: Usually, Night of Culture takes place on the first Saturday in June. Due to the pandemic, in 2021, the festival has changed its format and will take place between 4 June – 21 July. 
Where:  streets, squares and alleys in Lublin’s Old Town and city centre. 

Admission: All events are free; some require registration

This year, due to the pandemic, we are not planning to have any information points, nor print programmes and festival maps.

The full programme is available online.

As usual, most of the events take place in the Old Town. Vehicle entry to Lublin’s Old Town is not permitted. You can walk here, ride a bike, or use public transport.
This year, due to the pandemic and the resulting change of festival format and dates, we are not planning to ask the Public Transport Authority (ZTM)  to change the schedule of night service.
We will keep you posted about any changes and disturbances to regular traffic related to the festival.
Night of Culture is a city festival that lasts only one night. You can read more here.
Not at all. Night of Culture is a separate event taking place in Lublin at a different date than Night of Museums, and it does not specifically focus on museum activities but on a broader range of cultural and artistic events. The second major difference between the two festivals is that during Night of Museums most events take place indoors, inside museums, whereas Night of Culture offers outdoor events in public spaces and, moreover, presents completely new multidisciplinary projects that fit the city’s character and encourage the residents to interact.
Night of Culture usually takes place on the first weekend of June between 19.00 and 2.00 a.m.
Night of Culture takes place in the Old Town area or nearby.  Some events are also held at the headquarters of the partners of Night of Culture, regardless of their location.
Yes. All events are free. Some spaces, however, have limited places or seats available (like theatres), so taking into account the comfort of our visitors, we offer free tickets that everyone can book. 
The full programme will be soon made available on our website in May. All hot news about the festival will also be accessible in the news section.

Usually during Night of Culture, we also offer printed programmes and maps. For your copy, just go to one of our information points located in the Old TownHowever, this year, due to the pandemic, we will not open information points.

This year, due to the pandemic, all events will take the form of art installations in the public space. We warmly invite all parents with children to go on walks and take photos.
We love pets (the dog Matrix is an integral part of our team), so to ensure your pets’ comfort, well-being, and safety, we suggest leaving them at home for this one night.
Hundreds of people visit Night of Culture, and there is a lot of harsh sounds,  intense light and an accumulation of impulses that will stress and scare your pet,  even ones that might be familiar with such situations. We leave our four-legged friends at home. PS. Matrix will also stayat home. 
The majority of events do not require registration. For safety reasons, we run registration for events in limited-capacity rooms, such as theatre auditoriums. Registrations launch in May, usually two weeks before the event. However, if you don’t have a ticket, that’s ok too! You can see all the other beautiful things that are  available to all guests without any limits.
Yes. You can freely take pictures at most Night of Culture events. Exceptions are some concerts and stage plays. Information on photography restrictions will be visible on signs and announced by the MC from the stage. We will also mention it in the event descriptions at nockultury.pl
Night of Culture means movement, either fast or slow strolls around the Old Town, that’s why it’s worthwhile to wear comfortable clothes, especially shoes. Night of Culture shows aren’t formal, so you can listen to a string concert wearing jeans and a T-shirt on this special night. It’s good to take drinks and snacks with you because after 22.00 the waiting time for orders in restaurants can be quite long. 

 

It is prohibited to consume alcohol in public places in Poland. The rules concerning drinking in public are the same on Night of Culture as any other day; that’s why we encourage you to stop for a glass of wine or a pint of beer in designated places. Luckily, there are many bars, cafés, pubs, and restaurants in the Old Town and the nearby areas.

Remember that Night of Culture begins in many places simultaneously; there is no official opening in one place. The programme of your Night of Culture is up to you. It’s a good idea to prepare in advance, that is to read the complete programme of the festival. If you don’t do it, that’s ok – every year we see many strollers who make decisions spontaneously and have a lot of fun. 

We encourage all visitors to use public transport and the city bike system. Due to the great interest that the event generates, it’s tough to find free parking spaces near the city centre.  Additionally, on Night of Culture, some streets may be closed to vehicle traffic. To make returning home easier, the Public Transport Authority in Lublin (ZTM) provides a more frequent night service that you can use for free. 
Oh, there are many fantastic things to see and do here, but there is not enough space on this page to mention them all. Please contact the Lublin Tourist and Cultural Information Centre for more information.
