What are Obwarzanki, you ask? Well!
You can propose to your girlfriend with them, you can play frisbee with them, your dogs can chew them or wear them as a collar, you can wear them as a fashionable bracelet, necklace or crown, you can play a fun game of ring toss with them, you can defend yourself with them OR attack, similar to a ninja throwing star, you can use them to hold together a flower arrangement, you can use them as wheels for cat-sized car, you can stick a bunch together to make a firehose, some pipes or a telescope AND you can even EAT them!
Obwarzanki, these inconspicuous parboiled dough rings have been part of Krakow's history for over 600 years. Beloved by citizens, tourists and pigeons, since medieval times their motto has been "kings eat them, knights eat them, even Wawel’s dragon eats them! Obwarzanki!"
The Obwarzanek Krakowski is a symbol of our city. There are around 150,000 of them sold every day and their significance to the culinary heritage of Krakow has been recognized by the European Union – the Obwarzanek Krakowski has received the Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status.
Learn more and discover what makes them so unique and adored during an obwarzanki making workshop. Each participant gets a piece of dough and leaves with their very own handmade obwarzanek.
