New buses coming soon

Soon you will probably see new buses in Krakow. The city has just received over 110 million PLN from the European Union to buy 107 new ecological buses before World Youth Day.

WYD: volunteers needed

In July over two million people will come to Krakow for World Youth Day. Organizers for the July event are still looking for 7-8 thousand volunteers for the event. The volunteer program has been critiqued by some over the fact that those who wish to help out have to pay a fee for doing so. Of the volunteer ‘packages’, the cheapest one runs at 50 PLN (includes transport, insurance, and a backpack) while the most expensive option runs at 300 PLN. The registration lasts till the end of April. [Radio Krakow, World Youth Day]
