Krakow deals with an influx of Ukrainian refugees.

Krakow needs to cope with a massive influx of the Ukrainian refugees in the wake of the Russian invasion. Frantic efforts of the Polish authorities as well as NGO's and thousands of families and individuals have made it possible to provide the exiles with shelter, food, clothing, medical care, and education for children. The Ukrainian refugees have been also granted several special privileges, such as free public transport and free car parking in the streets, if they apply for them provided they arrived to Poland after February 24th, 2022.

COVID-19: the restrictions are gone.

The authorities have decided to scrap almost all COVID restrictions in Krakow and the entire Poland from March 28th, 2022. Practically the only precautions still in place apply to medical services, namely facial masking and distancing are still mandatory at hospitals, health clinics, etc. The normalization has resulted from the falling numbers of new cases rather than the change of attitude towards the pandemic.
