invite you to Independent Square of Culture, a creative space
co-created by Zakopane and young artists. We prepared a new type of
area in our Town, with such distinctive activities as: art and
culture, information, sports, entertainment and relaxation.
centuries Zakopane is a town of culture, although every age brings
something different, nowadays it still springs with life on every
season. World-class artists, actors, celebrities and youtubers live
here or visit this place regularly, but most of all the
sensation-seeking types, culturally-oriented and directed towards
unique and vivid folklore of Podhale. Thanks to its uniqueness,
contemporary Zakopane is also a place where new ideas set off, as
