old tram depotThis year again Dragon Swing Team warmly invites you to dance in the historic building of an old tramway depot (Stara Zajezdnia) where two parties - on Thursday and Friday - will take place. This huge object (about 1000 m2 of the total area) functions now as a brewery, restaurant and a place of many concerts and parties. Thus, the participants will have an opportunity not only to dance in a big, beautiful, pre-war ballroom but also to try a delicious locally made beer ;)

old tram partyStara Zajezdnia was built in 1913 when the new tramway line was created. When the tramway network developed, the management board decided to build a new depot in Podgórze. After the new depot started to function, the old depot lost its significance. In 1998, the Krakow's government created, in this area, the Museum of Municipal Engineering.

The renovated building of an old depot is now a unique place and an example of the, rare in Krakow, skeletal architecture. The front of the hall is decorated by the picturesque peak with a clock in an art nouveau finial. Stara Zajezdnia is also the oldest depot of Krakow's public transport. The main hall is a part of the architectural complex that in 1985 was inscribed to the National Register of Objects of cultural heritage and to the UNESCO World Heritage List as a monument of a history.
