Zakopane for Children
Children’s Day is just a few days away. If you still have no idea what to do with your kids, below are some suggestions for the smallest and more. We also extend the children’s day – it lasts over a week with us 🙂
Children’s Day in Zakopane coincides with the festival XVI Days of Zakopane 2019, which will run from May 29 to June 8. It is a cyclical event held in the Mountains, commemorating the visit of John Paul II in 1997 in Zakopane. This year’s festival coincided with the 30th anniversary of the Tatra Mountains Museum, the 100th anniversary of the Association of Highlanders and the 115th anniversary of the Highlanders’ Association.
Zakopane has prepared many events and workshops for children to make this day special. Below are selected attractions for children in and around Zakopane:
Weaving workshops “Zakopane Threads”
Free weaving workshops for children and adolescents aged 10+ will take place in Władysław Zamoyski Municipal Art Gallery in Zakopane. They will be accompanied by the exhibition “Zakopane Art Collection of the Pegaz Gallery and the City Art Gallery”, where works of Polish artists in the field of sculpture, painting, graphics, drawing and textiles will be presented.
Weaving is one of the oldest crafts practiced by man. In Podhale, it is one of our craft traditions; Sumaks, rugs and dyed sheep’s wool tapestries have been admired all over the world and are still today admired. The subject of these products has always concerned the region, nature and religion, and they were made on a vertical weaving workshop, or on a frame of tapestries and rugs.
