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 (300 places or 2x150 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 335 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.

-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).

  • Two huge halls that are great for both conferences and concerts. Huge spaces of the whole hall which are suitable for organizing exhibitions and occasional events. A well-kept facility and a friendly event. The issue of sound system is very dependent on the sound crew and the different work can be assessed. Cons:-narrow parking spaces and often the price-no goods elevator-little electrical outlets

  • I wouldn't recommend it. They have remained chamsko for people who are not young. They threw people out of the job exchange just because they were over 35 years old. They treated us as old men who were not suitable for work. I was very zdołowałam. Protection threw me as a garbage, although I behaving quietly and I was crying because I learned that I am so old that the work for me is not!!!!!!!!!!!!. Shame, we will avoid ICE and this is the place already blacklisted. I know because a lot of people, too, like me, is a bulerated behaviour of employees and a high level of leadership.
