Glass Heritage Centre Krosno

  ul. Blich 2, Krosno      (+48) 13 44 400 31     01 Sep 2023
Krosno is the largest glass and glass fibre production centre in Europe, with a tradition of glass-blowing going back over five centuries. Modern production began in the interwar period, and attractive salaries at the new Krosno glassworks brought in specialists from all over Poland, including the Lower Silesia region, where the production of glass had been prolific since the Middle Ages. They, in turn passed on their knowledge to local apprentices, creating future generations of highly-skilled glass workers. Soon Krosno glass was winning international awards on its way to the worldwide renown which it retains today.

This modern, interactive facility was opened in 2012 and presents the history and achievements of Krosno's glassmaking tradition via exhibits, demonstrations, workshops, galleries and (of course) a large shop full of extraordinary and beautiful objects you can take home. The 2-hour tour begins in the glass workshop where you can not only observe the process of glassblowing, but have a turn at the pipe yourself. Next are the decoration workshops where artists explain how to design and make stained glass, and you can try your own hand at engraving on glass. Hundreds of glass items made in the region are also on display and temporary exhibition spaces present the work of some of the best international artists in the field, as well as other thematic exhibits. Certainly one of the best attractions in the area, beautiful glass souvenirs are available from their gift shop.





Open 09:00-17:00. Sun 11:00-17:00.
Last entrance 2h before closing
