The Culture Minister of Poland declared on Saturday that Wawel Castle in Krakow would receive a grant of PLN 38 million (8.02 million Euro) for investments.
Deputy Prime Minister Piotr Glinski, the Culture Minister, announced that this year, the historical building would get PLN 22 million (EUR 4.64 million) to fund the ‘underground Wawel’ project designed to improve public accessibility.
At a press conference on Saturday held in the renowned city of the south, Glinski claimed that the transformation of Polish culture has been highly dynamic of late.
“The diversity of the offer that the Wawel Royal Castle proposes can be seen in its increasing attendance,” Glinski said. “This year we expect around two million visitors. This is all the result of hard work.”
Glinski commented that the Ministry of Culture had allocated PLN 84 million (EUR 17.72 million) to Wawel over the past two years and that the process would continue. He added that PLN 30 million (EUR 6.33 million) would be invested this year in the landmark, with the remaining funds to be provided by the end of 2025.
