New museum director Andrzej Betlej said the move was designed to make the museum ‘modern’ and to make the castle “a friendly and open place for visitors, so that as many people as possible come here and feel good about it.”
Crown Prince Akishino of Japan and his wife, Crown Princess Kiko, on Saturday, the second day of their Polish trip, visited the southern city of Kraków.
The discovery has created a unique opportunity for experts to carry out archaeological and anthropological research on king Augustus II the Strong’s remains. The two other coffins belonging to Władysław IV and Queen Cecylia Renata will undergo careful restoration work.
Attracted by the promise of something a little more bonkers than Kraków’s mainstream pleasures of Wawel and the Old Town, a growing number of visitors are heading to Nowa Huta for a glimpse of the past.
