(4.1/5 based on 20+ reviews on the web)
All you need to know about the ICE Kraków Congress Centre:

-The ICE Kraków’s design was selected in an international architecture competition. The functional layout and composition of the Congress Centre uses the natural scenic values of the site. Thanks to its undulating roof inclined towards the Vistula River, the form of the building was often compared to a melting ice block. The façade is finished with a mosaic from ceramic tiles in white and red, like the Polish flag, and in various shades of grey. The structure is closed by a glass façade with titanium and zinc elements. Thanks to the effect achieved by the designers (the architecture studio Ingarden & Ewý Architekci, in cooperation with Arata Isozaki & Associates), the Centre smoothly blends with the panorama of the Vistula boulevards and of the city of Krakow as a whole.

-The ICE Kraków has a conference space of more than 36 000 m² – the largest Auditorium Hall can accommodate around 2000 people. The Centre’s guests are also offered the Theatre Hall (600 places), the Chamber Hall (400 places or 2x200 places) as well as a complex of conference rooms of a total floor area of 500 m², which can be separated into smaller spaces via a system of acoustic rooms.

-In addition, the ICE Kraków has 32 multifunctional meeting rooms and a three-tier foyer overlooking Wawel Castle and offering a panoramic view of Krakow. This area is perfectly suited for the function of an exhibition space. A two-level underground car park can accommodate 347 cars.

-ICE Kraków is the city’s new business flagship project, attracting, first of all, the MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions) industry. In view of its potential use as a venue for almost every type of event at the ICE Kraków, the Centre enjoys huge interest. 60 days of the Congress Centre’s operation have been booked by the end of 2014, and out of 365 days of 2015, 175 have already been booked.

-The ICE Kraków rooms are planned is planned in such a way that the events can be separated from each other. Thanks to this planning concept, as many as three simultaneous events may be hosted at the Centre, without the need for the guests to interact. This allows for a multiplication of the number of meetings to be held at the ICE Kraków Congress Centre throughout a year.

The Municipality of Krakow is the ICE Kraków investor, and the Krakow Festival Office the Centre’s operator. The project was implemented under the Malopolska Regional Operational Programme 2007-2013. The total project cost amounted to PLN 357 539 043.63 (co-financing amount: PLN 82 930 000.00). The work began in June 2007 and was completed in October 2014 (as scheduled).

  • We passed this superb looking futuristic building as we were heading to the fantastic Forum Café. Crossing over Grunwaldzki Bridge we couldn't stop and admire this amazing structure ,when viewed from ...  more »
  • I would definitely recommend at least once to the ICE. We were with her husband in the audytorialnej on the cabaret itself visually Hall has done for us already a huge impression and when he started to show it already knew that it is definitely a super evening, great acoustics, everything developed in every detail. Certainly we'll get there at some concert

  • The location of the Congress Centre in the Centre of Krakow, as well as its enormous possibilities for conferences, trade shows and other major events, secrete this building among others. Through the glass foyer overlooking the Wawel Castle. Transport parking underground is designed for 347 cars. The airport is 20 minutes drive to the railway station-15 minutes.

  • As stylish inside as outside. One of the coolest structures built after 2010 in this city.
  • Very modern and beautiful building, architecturally valuable. The servis was satisfiying.
  • Its a very nice Building where concerts and meetings are held! IF ur a ceo of a Company searching for a Place to meet. Try it OUT!!!
  • Beautiful View of Visla and Wawel
  • The worst place for classical music! No acoustic at all. Even with micing instruments sound is very bad. My home sound system sounds much better. Design of interior like a house of culture in some post-soviet old town. I didn't like a concert at all. Didn't fill nothing. Disappointed. P.S.: I was sitting in the center of parterre. 13 row 18, 19 place
