Even though the Polish Army Day is in the calendar, fees are still charged in the paid parking zone in Krakow. In May, the councilors changed the resolution on the SPP – one of the changes is the reduced number of days during which parking in the city is free. On August 15, you have to pay for parking – officials remind.
Leaving the car in the paid parking zone in Krakow is payable on Tuesday, August 15, despite the fact that it is a public holiday. It’s related with the new rules in force in this area from mid-May.
