About the Venue: Stara Zajezdnia Kraków by DeSilva – situated in the heart of Kazimierz Jewish District – is a place that combines history with modernity. The building features a beer hall with a mini brewery, restaurant and a yard. Stara Zajezdnia Kraków by DeSilva was established in 1913 as a tram depot along with the introduction of broad-gauge tram lines in Krakow. Stara Zajezdnia was the second facility of this type at the time. The first one was a six-track hall built nearby to house a narrow-gauge track, which is currently home to the Museum of Municipal Engineering. It ceased functioning as a depot in the early 1960s when trams were removed and gradual deterioration led to its closure in 2007.


The renovated building of Stara Zajezdnia is a unique facility. The hall is an example of wooden framework architecture with brick filling, very rare in Krakow, commonly called “Prussian wall”. The hall front is decorated with a picturesque top bearing an Art Nouveau clock. The Main Hall belongs to an architectural and construction complex which is under legal protection – entered into the register of monuments in 1985 and the World Cultural and Natural Heritage List UNESCO – and recognised as a historical monument.
