The Open Flats Festival is an unusual opportunity to peek into interesting interiors hidden behind the facades of tenement houses, enter someone's home, discover its history and get to know its inhabitants. This year, for the fourth time, residents of Krakow will open the doors of their apartments, houses and art studios, inviting strangers into them.
During two holiday weekends( July18-19 and 25-26), the following will be opened, among others: an industrial apartment in Zabłocie, beautiful studios with limited space but unlimited imagination of their owners, and interiors full of plants and atmospheric objects. The owner or designer will talk about each place.

Numerous accompanying events are also planned during the festival, including a walk over the rooftops of Krakow, an outdoor concert and workshops for the youngest.
Although this year's edition could have shared the fate of other canceled festivals, the organizers decided to reschedule for a later date, believing that the openness underlying the event is now sorely needed. Concerned for the safety of all participants, the organizers assure that they will continuously monitor the epidemic situation in the country and adapt its form to the current state and applicable sanitary regulations. Depending on the development of the situation, the announced events will be held online or... offline.
Due to the limited number of seats, registration will be mandatory for some of the locations and accompanying events, which will be available on the festival website a few days before the event. A detailed program will be published no later than a week before the event.
