Forty Kleparz

ul. Kamienna 2/4, 30-001 Kraków

"Forty Kleparz" is part of the nineteenth century walls, fortress, preserved in almost perfect condition.
All the buildings are Fort Kleparski (Bastion III Kleparz), built between 1856-1859. One of the advantages is its interior - the traditional nineteenth-century fortifications successfully exploited in a modern and elegant way, like the finest of its kind in the world.

We strive to create a creative space with a cultural, business and entertainment character. We started with the club, creating a recognizable brand that is associated with excellent music and the biggest stars of the Polish music scene for Cracovians. Now we are sharing the effect of work on the second stage of our plan. We offer a year-round restobar serving world cuisine, a summer part of the restaurant - an orangery, a lounge bar - a relaxation zone in the restored part between the rampart and the redita of the fort - and a summer stage where concerts and events take place. In September, we will open further parts of our complex: a banquet and exhibition hall, a museum room dedicated to the topic of fortifications and a historical path located on the outer embankment. In the future, the concert courtyard will be covered with a roof, thanks to which a banquet and concert hall will be created, which will accommodate 3,000 people.


Rynek Główny 1/3, 31-042 Kraków

The Sukiennice (Cloth Hall) is a large market hall erected in the 13th century in the middle of the Market Square, extended in the 14th century in the Gothic style and remodelled in the mid-16th century after Renaissance fashion. Following its restoration in the years 1875-1879, it began to serve a representative function and became a venue for grand balls and patriotic celebrations. Due to their location and character, the halls on the first floor of the Sukiennice building became the first seat of the National Museum in Krakow. Initially, the Museum shared this space with the Society of Friends of Fine Arts.


On 7 October 1879, the Krakow City Council founded the first National Museum on the Polish territory. The exhibition inaugurating the activity of the Museum was opened on 11 September 1883, on the eve of the bicentenary of the Battle of Vienna, in two rooms on the first floor of the Sukiennice, facing Bracka street. Since then, the permanent gallery of the National Museum was housed in this location. The first director of the new institution was Władysław Łuszczkiewicz (1883-1900), followed by Feliks Kopera (1900-1949).

In 1901, the National Museum took over the entire floor of the Sukiennice. 1902 and 1903 saw the creation of a modern museum gallery, which remained almost unchanged until 1939. The display presented arts and crafts from the 15th to the 19th century, painting and sculpture of the second half of the 19th century, drawings and watercolours, national memorabilia as well as archaeological and ethnographic exhibitions. During the First World War the Museum activity was interrupted for a few months, and during World War II - for five years, from 1939 to 1945.

In the years 1950-1956, under the directorship of Tadeusz Dobrowolski, the Sukiennice halls offered a new exhibition which presented exclusively Polish painting and sculpture from the Enlightenment to the end of the 19th century. The same chronological order of the displayed works was preserved by Directors Adam Bochnak (1957-1962), Jerzy Banach (1963-1974) and Tadeusz Chruścicki, under whose administration the Sukiennice Gallery was remodelled by Mieczysław Porębski, Andrzej Pawłowski and Jan Kolanowski. This time-honoured chronological order of the exhibition is still visible today.

A fundamental change was brought about by Director Zofia Gołubiew (since 2000). The Gallery underwent conservative renovation, gaining a new layout and decor. All the museum halls existing in the Sukiennice were transformed and modernised and new spaces were acquired - on the ground floor, mezzanine and terraces.

The present layout of the exhibition was designed by Barbara Ciciora and Aleksandra Krypczyk, who took into consideration the interior changes devised by Jacek Cupryś. The aesthetics of the Sukiennice Gallery still refers to the 19th-century manner of displaying art.

The exhibition in the Sukiennice is presented in the following four rooms:

  • The Bacciarelli Room: the Enlightenment – which displays the art of the second half of the 18th century and the early 19th century,
  • The Michałowski Room: Romanticism. Towards National Art – which focuses on national themes in art,
  • The Siemiradzki Room: Around the Academy – which presents issues relevant to the academic curriculum in the second half of the 19th century,
  • The Chełmoński Room: Realism, Polish Impressionism, Beginnings of Symbolism – which displays the works that herald the art of Młoda Polska (Young Poland) movement, exhibited in the main building of the Museum.

The Gallery of 19th-Century Polish Art is a continuation of the Gallery of the Art of Old Poland from the 12th to the 18th Century, situated in the Bishop Erazm Ciołek Palace. The display exhibited in the Sukiennice is chronologically followed by works presented in the Gallery of 20th-Century Polish Art in the Main Building of the National Museum in Krakow.
