Pl. Wszystkich Świętych 5
If you’re rootless in Kraków on Christmas Day and looking for something to do, St. Francis’ Basilica hosts an annual ‘live nativity scene’ in the field behind the church featuring large crowds, lots of singing children, a warm, raging bonfire and live animals. [Though according to legend animals acquire the ability to speak during Wigilia, as far as we’ve observed it’s nothing but barnyard banter with this lot.] This year the live nativity actually starts after dark on Christmas Eve and continues through Christmas Day. Free food and drinks (basically dinner rolls and tea) are served within one of the church buildings, and just about everyone in town will be stopping by at some point.
