A new attraction opens in Krakow today, towering 12 storeys above the river Wisła and offering spectacular bird’s eye views of the city.
The ferris wheel – in Polish, Diabelski Młyn (Devilish Mill) – has been erected by the river on the edge of Kazimierz, opposite the Skałka church. It has 24 gondolas, each seating six people in comfort, and will be open daily from 4pm to 1am.
Tickets usually cost 10zł or 15zł, and are available from mobile sales points around the city. However, tonight (August 3), there will be a grand opening ceremony, with free rides from 8pm to 10pm.
The wheel has been built by Dutch company Kriek. The firm’s Daniel Heinst said: “There will be plenty of attractions, and of course the ferris wheel, which at night makes a big impression!”
