Explore Krakow ~ City Game

The second Friday of October volunteers and interns played the city game “Explore Krakow”. They formed four competing groups “Die Glücksbärchies”, “People”, “Stereotypes” and “Boo”. Starting from Wojewódzka Biblioteka Publiczna w Krakowie in Rajska 1 they interviewed Poles, met challenges and finally became rewarded with Zapiekanki at Plac Nowy in Kazimierz where the game ended after more or less 150 minutes of exploring. We officially announce the 1st place with 500 points: “Stereotypes”.

Let`s imagine 15 young people. They are in a library in Krakow. Running around but trying not to distract anyone (because it`s a library still).  Eager to find this one painting. The artist name is Pawel Slota. drawing

“Register and make a library card. (Trust me, it doesn`t take long and is free of course) After this you borrow one book (In the 2nd floor there are also foreign languages).” This task was also successfully completed by (most) of the rivals, as you can see here:

Next stops: Stare Miasto, Bania Luka, Collegium Maius, Tree of Independence, Ambassada, Wawel Dragon. What happened at the Wawel dragon is worth to show you, so enjoy this funny task: “Create a human circle around the Wawel dragon with each of you holding hands. The dragon is pretty big, isn`t it? Your challenge is to find people to support you to close the circle. Take a photo!”

“I was surprised that so many people supported us creating the circle” ~ said a volunteer from one of the groups. Also the interns from Germany are enjoying to get to know Krakow in an interactive way. “We are happy that the organization goes so smooth and that the cooperation is uncomlicated” said one of them.

However, in the end every group made it to the final task and everyone was rewarded by a huge Zapiekanka (Polish Pizza baguette) and they decided to “den Tag ausklinegen lassen” in a cozy Cafe (meaning having a nice and relaxed ending of the day in a Cafe).
