REGIONAL: Cracovia stop renamed?
Most residents know the local stadium Cracovia, as well as the bus stops the same name. The public transport names however came form the now defunct Hotel Cracovia, which has been closed down for years. ZIKIT published a poll asking residents to vote for what they thing the stops should be called. Nearly 16,000 people voted for the change to “National Museum”, which is a few meters away from the stops. However, the vote has caused large controversy, specifically with football fans whose favorite team shares the same name. It is still uncertain however if a change will occur at all.
