Summertime in Karolin

There’s lots happening in Karolin during the summer. On Wednesdays and Sundays we’ll be making the most of the summer holidays and travelling around Poland and beyond during our family workshops. A summer crafts school for adults and young people will run on Saturdays. We’re also planning talks and presentations, and a big social dance to end the season. Join us in Karolin this summer!

Family workshops
Travel around Poland and head abroad this summer from the comfort of Karolin! This series of workshops is themed around travel. We’ll visit different Polish regions, immersing ourselves in local customs, history, nature and culture. Destinations include the forests of Eastern Mazowsze, the Polish seaside and the stunning Tatra mountains. We’ll even take a round-the-world trip, following the tour route of Mazowsze Ensemble.  If you can’t make it in July, don’t worry! We’ll be repeating each workshop in August. Join us for a summer of travel and new discoveries!
