A space for English-speaking WYD participants opens on Tuesday in Tauron Arena Krakow. Pilgrims will be able to join masses, discussions, conferences, concerts and many other kinds of meetings, all held in English. It is estimated that the place will be visited by 80,000 to 100,000 people. [Onet]
GRENADES FOUND IN SZCZAWNICA
Sappers have found a bag with two grenades in Szczawnica (Małopolskie Voievodeship). The bag was noticed by a random passerby who then informed the police about it, which allowed them to quickly secure the grenades. Because of World Youth Day, all residents, tourists, and pilgrims in Krakow and its surrounding areas are asked to be alert to any suspicious behaviour or parcels. [Gazeta Krakowska]
NEW FOOTBRIDGE ON VISTULA?
The councilors of Zwierzyniec have voted for a new footbridge connecting Salwator and Dębniki. The distance between Dębnicki and Zwierzyniecki Bridges is two kilometers and building a new footbridge would such make such passages a lot easier, the councilors justify. It’s still far in the future though, as the first new footbridge the city will build is one connecting Kazimierz and Ludwinów. [lovekrakow.pl]
