Funds at the exhibition
The Jan Nowak Jeziorański Square in front of Galeria Krakowska now hosts an exhibition entitled Malopolska – Transformation! Success in the Implementation of European Funds in the Malopolska Region. It is worth mentioning that Krakow has run as many as 119 projects co-financed from the Malopolska Regional Operational Programme, the highest index in the region. The projects are carried out by theatres, museums, the opera house, the philharmonic hall, universities, monasteries, hospitals, and institutions such as the Krakow Festival Office, the Regional Police Headquarters, Anna Dymna’s Mimo Wszystko Foundation, the Nie lękajcie się! John Paul II Centre, as well as the Office of the City of Krakow and the Marshal's Office of the Malopolska Region.
The exhibition showcases the innovative Computer Centre of the University of Science and Technology, a unique Royal Route designed for a disabled tourist, and the prize-winning Polish Home Army Museum. The following are also represented: the Museum of Modern Art in Krakow (MOCAK), which revitalised historically important post-industrial areas of the city and helped digitize and make the 2D collections of the Historical Museum of the City of Krakow, the building of a tunnel under the Ofiar Katynia roundabout in Krakow and the ICE Krakow Congress Centre currently underway at the Grunwaldzkie roundabout publically available. Several cultural events, such as Photomonth in Krakow, the Grand Dragon Parade, the Film Music Festival, and the OPERA RARA also deserve a mention.
All these projects have received funding from EU resources in the framework of the Malopolska Regional Operational Programme. We are talking about a total of 119 projects in Krakow alone, and nearly 900 in all of the region. Their total cost is more than PLN 7.4 billion, and the subsidies add up to a total of PLN 4.4 billion.
The exhibition will remain in Krakow until the 21st of August; on the 27th, it will be transferred to Nowy Sącz.
