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.
