Zabłocie is a very interesting district of Krakow, located in the Podgórze district. Why interesting? Because only a few years has gained fame and popularity and is called the "new attraction" of Krakow.
In the past, Zabłocie constituted an industrial suburb of Podgórze, in which created a lot of smaller and bigger factories. By the end of the PRL (Polish People's Republic) produced there cosmetics, glass, electronic products, matches and sweets. Today, we can see only remaining industrial built-old, shabby buildings. For sure?
Currently, Zabłocie is considered one of the fastest growing areas of Krakow. From the remaining parts of the city connects them Kotlarski bridge, so we can communicate in this part of town. For several years running there new educational center - Andrzej Frycz Modrzewski Krakow University and since 1992 also work here Cracow School of Art and Fashion Design.Once - industrial area, develops culturally today and is the center of all sorts of artistic initiatives.
