Slowacki Theater in Krakow
The Slowackiego Theater, built in 1893, used to double as Krakow's opera house till 2008.

Krakow Theater 

Krakow features prominently on the theater map of Europe. Its legendary Narodowy Stary Teatr (National Old Theater) counts among the continent’s best companies of players. Like most Krakow repertory theaters it runs several playhouses of varied capacity including its sizable main venue in the 200-year-old theater building, Poland’s oldest, at 1 Jagielonska street. It has a formidable local competitor in the Teatr Slowackiego theater whose grand edifice of 1893 at the Plac Sw. Ducha square doubled many decades as an opera house. 


Krakow’s other repertory companies are the Teatr Bagatela theater, 6 Karmelicka street at Krupnicza street, the Scena STU theater at 16 Krasinskiego street in the downtown area, and the Teatr Ludowy theater in the os. Teatralne residential quarter of the largely industrial district of Nowa Huta. In 2015 Teatr Variete opened at 71 Grzegorzecka street, determined to entertain the general public with comedies and musicals. There is also the Teatr Groteska theater at 2 Skarbowa street that specializes in the puppet and mask productions for children. Relatively new arrivals with fixed addresses and steady stage productions are the Teatr Laznia Nowa theater at 25 Os. Szkolne and the Teatr Nowy theater at 21 Gazowa street. 

Curtain of the Teatr Slowackiego theater in Krakow, Poland

The stunning curtain of Krakow's Teatr Slowackiego theatre was designed by Henryk Siemiradzki in 1894.

In addition to the above-mentioned established temples of dramatic art Krakow boast an array of independent ventures that comprise a fairly lively and diverse off scene. And Krakow’s famous Panstwowa Wyzsza Szkola Teatralna (Higher State Theater School) is a force in its own right. For one thing, every year it dispatches a new contingent of actors and directors who before soon tend to occupy the center stage all over the country. For another, productions at the school’s two playhouses, featuring students but staged by the best Polish directors, sometimes receive rave reviews.
