Miłosz Festival

The greatest celebration of poetry in Poland and Central Europe! Each year the festival welcomes stars of world literature, and Kraków’s conference halls, auditoriums, independent bookshops and festival cafés turn into a space for poetic dialogue by hosting meetings with authors, lectures, concerts, workshops and discussions on hot social, cultural and political topics. The annual Wisława Szymborska Prize is awarded for best volume of poetry written in Polish and for poetry translation.

Guests of the festival have so far included Adonis, Yurii Andrukhovych, Simon Armitage, Saleh Diab, Elena Fanailova, Stefan Hertmans, Alice Oswald and Tomas Venclova.
