Woggles at the ready

A new museum dedicated to the PolishScouting movement is to open in Krakow. The museum will be based at the former Łapianka fort, part of the fortifications of Krakow built when the city was part of the Austrian Empire. Tadeusz Trzmiel, Deputy Mayor of Krakow, said the project would modernise the former fort. He added that there would be space for traditional scouting activities such as camping and bonfires, and that the museum would include an amphitheatre. Mr Trzmi said: "I think the construction will be possible by 2015." It might be a long wait, but local Scouts are already excited at the prospect. Janusz Wojtycza, Scoutmaster, said: "In Warsaw, there is only a virtual museum. The capital will be jealous of Krakow!" Mr Wojycza added that the Polish Scout movement began in the Małopolska region and in Lviv (now in Ukraine).
