Krakow Industrial Heritage Route

The Industrial Heritage Route in Krakow is an urban tourist trail, the first of its kind in Poland. The trail features 16 the most valuable objects situated in the very centre of the city and its close vicinity, connected with industry, transportation, power and gas production, protection against the flood and fire.

All of them are significant because of their exceptional historical and architectonical importance. A large number of them were built in the 19th and 20th century by the leading Polish specialists of the time but some were designed, erected and equipped technically by foreign engineers from other European countries, thus making them part of a greater European cultural heritage. Some of them are still in use whilst others have been adapted to function in a different capacity, including a public one. The old tram depot which was transformed into The Museum of Municipal Engineering is major attraction along the route and runs a tourist information office specializing in providing detailed information about all the other sites.
