June 23 & 24:
Floating of the Wreaths
Every year during the name days of John and Wanda, Cracovians gather along the banks of the river near the castle. In a carnival atmosphere, people release wreaths into the water during a fireworks display.
The Crib Exhibition
On December 1st, Krakow begins preparation for Christmas by erecting small huts throughout the square. Various shopkeepers, who sell beautiful ornaments and other small gifts, rent these little shacks. However, the real treat is the competition between crib designers. Most are traditionally modeled after the historic buildings of Krak√≥w, and the best are bought by the city.
