About the Krakow Music Festival
The Krakow Music Festival is held annually and is organised by MRF Music Festivals, one of Europe's biggest festival organisers.  This festival is suited to those choirs looking to travel for a short period and who would like to have some free time to explore the city. Your choir will have the opportunity to perform twice, once as part of the cycle of performance for an approximate 30-minute duration and secondly as part of the joint concert where choirs perform 1-2 songs.  There is plenty of time for choirs to arrange sightseeing tours and to see all this wonderful city has to offer. 


Kraków is an old, beautiful city of Poland which leads the economic, cultural and architectural life of Poland. Visit the home of the largest medieval commercial squares’ in Europe. Here, the Holy Father Pope John Paul II served as a Bishop for more than twelve years. Most restaurant menus in Poland reflect international diets adapted to the country’s culinary tradition but Polish-style cooking is still a big factor in restaurants.
