Attractive location and magical atmosphere of Plac na Groblach Square make this place unique.
Throughout the years Plac na Groblach Square has been a dwelling place of a number of Cracow-based personalities, e.g. Karol Tichy, Ksawery Pruszczyński, Janina Garycka and Piotr Skrzynecki.
They were attracted not only by its excellent location in the centre of the city, but also by stunning views over the meander of the Vistula and the Wawel Hill. The future owners of Plac na Groblach 19, too, will have a chance to admire the monumental seat of the first kings of Poland – the Wawel Castle (in Polish: Zamek na Wawelu) – from the windows of their apartments.
Just a few steps away from the building there is the only original, preserved fragment of the Royal Brewery (in Polish: Browar Królewski). In the immediate vicinity there are the embankments of the Vistula where you can enjoy a panoramic view over the city far from the noise of traffic. At a stone’s throw away there is the Main Market Square (in Polish: Rynek Główny) with the most popular attractions: the Cloth Hall (in Polish: Sukiennice), the Town Hall Tower (in Polish: Wieża Ratuszowa) and St. Mary’s Basilica (in Polish: Kościół Mariacki).
The enthusiasts of city buzz and tones may direct their steps to Kazimierz, an avant-garde and vibrant district of Cracow, where they will find original cafes, clubs and restaurants; or go luxury shopping in Pasaż 13, Galeria Krakowska or Galeria Kazimierz shopping centres.
The enthusiasts of culture may contemplate it at a nearby Juliusz Słowacki Theatre (in Polish: Teatr Słowckiego), Old Theatre ((in Polish: Teatr Stary)or the Cracow Philharmonic ((in Polish: Filharmonia Krakowska). Art lovers may visit Manggha Museum of Japanese Art and Technology (in Polish: Muzeum Sztuki i Techniki Japońskiej Manggha) situated on the other side of the river.

A three-minute walk away from the tenement building there is one of the most prestigious hotels in Cracow - Sheraton Kraków Hotel that holds business branches and top conferences.
