LIFE project cut

Krakow plans to end its cooperation with the antismog LIFE project. The program was meant to last eight years, aiming to find alternative methods of energy for Krakow locals to avoid burning coal and other high pollution contributors. Krakow lawmakers however guarantee that they will still be able to replace coal-heating systems in the city. [Gazeta Krakowska]

Cemetery vandalised

Krakow’s Podgórski Cemetery was devastated this week, leaving many of its main monuments destroyed. An attack on the Krakow cemetery left many locals shaken and many of the most notable parts of the cemetery ruined. Locals say that they do not suspect any religious hatred motivating the attacks, but more as forms of hooliganism. Two of the newly renovated memorials for children were also amongst the destroyed parts of the cemetery. [Gazeta Krakowska]
