For several years the Jarmark Świętojański had a rather surreal look to it, with all the same huts and wooden shop fronts from the Christmas market dusted down and taken out for a summer jaunt. However, more recently a noticeable effort to make the place look a lot more 'summery', with some green areas incorporated into the layout. Thanks to a mini garden and a number of flowers and plants spread around the place, the market's atmosphere is now much better tuned to its setting than in previous years.
Despite it being a 'summer' market, you will still come across many of the same regional products found at the Christmas market. Expect to see plenty of crockery, plus Polish delicacies such as sausages, ham and mountain cheese. The stalls aren't just limited to traditional Polish products though, as there are also sellers boasting fresh produce from all over Europe.
Lublin has based its programme on an inspiring dialogue between its multicultural heritage and the challenges posed by future. Karola Szajnochy Street, located in the very centre of Wrocław, will become the stage for its presentation. There, the most famous and prominent local artists will build the scenery of Lublin, a unique city of inspiration, where modern times intermingle with rich history. The performance, spanning several days, will reflect the dialogue of tradition and modernity through interactive cultural activities, based on theatrical plays, film screenings, concerts and performances.
