Nice way to learn about Krakow!. I went with my kids and the movie definitely got their attention. My daughter said that we should have seen the movie before starting to explore the city. The first day we came to Krakow.

Really recommend Krakow in 15 minutes to anyone visiting the city for the first time. Considering there is so much to do in the city it's nice to sit down and just watch something that explains everything and it's cheap. It's so random but so informative and a great introduction to the city.

This was the first thing we did in Kraków after getting off to a horribly rocky start, involving an Airbnb host who fell asleep and found us on the sidewalk at midnight in a blind panic. The next morning we were so tired, shaken and discombobulated, one on the edge of arguing and the other on the verge of tears, we couldn’t get our bearings. We saw the sign for this attraction and went in, figuring it could help us find our way around. Kraków in 15 really saved our trip. The young lady who checked us in was a delight- pleasant and friendly, the first smiling face we had seen in what felt like a lifetime. The presentation itself was- and I don’t know how to say this tactfully- so awful, it was funny and by the time we left, we had recovered our good humor and were able to enjoy the rest of the day. The presentation went so fast and was so confusing, and assumed we knew basic Polish history (we didn’t) and every time we’d hear the narrator turn his page on the audio, we would get a fit of the giggles. Cheap, cheesy, last century’s technology, and we can’t thank them enough! And thanks for the smiles, young lady. You never know how far a smile can go!

I hate giving a one star review but I really can't think of anything that would merit another star. We were really looking forward to getting an introduction to the social history of Krakow. The best museums give you a real sense of what it was like for the ordinary people to live in the place. But this show gives little more than a dry listing of dates of who ruled when. No sense of the place at all. If you are from UK/Ireland, this is the kind of historical introduction you might remember getting in the 1970's in Bath or York or some place like that. That was 50 years ago and museums have moved on a lot since then, but this hasn't. Really disappointing.

Thank you for your interest in our attraction "Krakow for Beginners" (Krakow in 15 minutes). We are sorry that you didn't like our show, which is 3D Mapping movie played on the city model.We fully understand that reviews and opinions can vary. Not everyone will be always satisfied. But opinion is one thing. But another one is that you say complete false information to other travelers. It is not fair. "Krakow in 15 minutes" is not an old fashion museum, but a historical show using modern technology (by the way we know nothing about museums in Bath or York in 1970' - so we can not compare 3D Mapping cinema to museums from 1970' in GB). The idea is to show different aspects of the history of Krakow. You wrote: "...this show gives little more than a dry listing of dates of who ruled when. No sense of the place at all.". This is simply not true. Here you can find first 3 minutes of the show. https://youtu.be/RwWVoFlSDqg The show is full of curiosities, anecdotes, legends. There is no linear order of events, it is not boring history. It is about kings (one of banned smoking in the court), about an Italian queen (she imported tomatos to Poland), about Nobel prize winner Maria Sklodowska (she wasn't accepted in The Jagiellonian Academy, because she was a woman), about Polish scoccer (first clubs in Krakow), about first restaurants and many more. There is no one date spoken (dates are displayed in the right top corner). If you find time you can come back and watch entire movie. You are very welcome. On the same day another traveler dropped a review "Nice way to learn about Krakow!. I went with my kids and the movie definitely got their attention. My daughter said that we should have seen the movie before starting to explore the city. The first day we came to Krakow." It is an answer to your concerns.

Really enjoyed this informative showing. The history in 15 mins in 3D. Well worth the visit.

5 mins from Castle. Worth every penny.

We almost missed it, although we want to see it. Be carefull walking through The Royal Road. We used only written guides in Krakow. So, it was great complmentary to our Let's go. Kind of movie. We found interesting stories, no boring places and dates. Really fine. Much more intersting than a boring and expensive human quide.

We just arrived to Krakow. We started in Castle and visited by the chance a small movie presenting "Krakow in 15 minutes/Krakow for Beginners". It was really very cheap and fine. We found it very useful. Stuff was nice and very helpful. More our reviews to come, stay tuned.
