Attractions on Plac Solny
A number of attractions will appear on Plac Solny, including a three-level fairytale house with an observation deck and a small tower with an illuminated clock. In this house, you can warm up in the glow of the fireplace, drink hot beverages and have a pleasant time in the festive fairytale space, admiring the panorama of the Christmas Market from a different perspective.
This unusual attraction will be available only during the Christmas Market and its beauty will charm everyone. Plac Solny will become a magical magnet attracting and inviting us to the centre of the Christmas culinary and entertainment space, where we will feel the unique atmosphere of Christmas.
The visitors of the Christmas Market will be able to see the “Gallery of Santa Claus” on Plac Solny for the first time – the fairytale Christmas decoration of this attraction will encourage everybody to visit its unique interior. It is a must-see.
Near the “Gallery of Saint Claus” we will find a special place which has successfully operated on Plac Solny for a few months. Hidden in the underground of Plac Solny, the Movie Gate – Gallery of Film Art will move us to the magical world of film, science and history.
This exceptional exhibition consisting of original costumes and props from the biggest productions of international cinema will enable you to dive into a world that has only been available on the big screens so far. During the Christmas Market, there will be interactive “Shows of the Helpers of Crazy Santa Claus” in Movie Gate.
