Krakow

Corner of ul. Najowki & al. Kijowska

This brick wall surrounding the school at Aleja Kijowska 8 - which runs for an entire city block - may have been the birthplace of Kraków street art, and was certainly one of its city-centre strongholds until authorities decided to stop the artistic expression happening here by painting over everything, including a mural of Pope JPII (how could they!). Such was the outrage that students from a local school used photographs to create an exact copy of the JPII mural on a vinyl banner and restore it to its place. Though you may find fresh street art here, it seems the city is determined to cover it up, essentially killing what was once the highest density of graffiti art in town. We are leaving the outdated photos here as a memorial for all the murals that once existed here. Getting there is easy, just take bus 208 from 'Dworzec Wschodni' (the stop near the train station, alongside Galeria Krakowska) and get off at the 'Kawiory' stop.
