The Józef Czapski Pavilion at ul. Piłsudskiego is a new address on a cultural map of Krakow under the brand of the National Museum in Krakow. Shortly after opening, it gathered crowds of visitors, proving that there was a huge cultural gap, previously unnoticed. The pavilion designed by architect Danuta Fredowicz was built to honour Józef Czapski, an exiled Polish artist and Katyn survivor. It assembles paintings, journals, archival film footage and a reconstruction of the artist's modest studio. The pavilion is set in the beautiful garden of Kraków's Hutten-Czapski Palace, which once belonged to Józef Czapski's grandfather, Emeryk. Events like meetings with authors, book evenings and film projections are organized on a daily basis.
