Kawiarnia Jama Michalika Kraków
Jam Michalik Café, 15 Floriańska Street, Kraków
At the beginning of 20th century artists from the nearby School of Fine Arts began to meet in the café.
For 10 years from 1905 a famous Galician cabaret “Zielony Balonik” (the Green Balloon) performed there – it gathered Bohemian circles which used to ridicule false morality of the Kraków bourgeois. Art Nouveau café inside was expanded and redecorated in 1910. The decor preserved until now bears the traces of the Young Poland period. On the walls there are caricatures, landscapes, regular customers’ and the cabaret co-originators’ drawings.
