Cold weather in Krakow brings about the raised level
of fine particulate matter in the air. Nowadays
Krakow, as practically all European cities, is a
battlefield in the global anti-coal campaign so
alarmist reports happen, notably throughout winter,
when foggy conditions prevail. Actually, there is no
real cause for concern as long as you avoid walking
busy arteries jammed with vehicles during peak hour
traffic in the morning and between 3 pm and 7 pm.
Please remember that, unlike London or Paris, in
Krakow the equipment to measure levels of fine
particulate matter and other pollutants is installed
only in the most busy streets so any published data
mostly concern car exhaust fumes not the general air
quality in the city. More reliable is The Copernicus
Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS) which publishes
www.regional.atmosphere.copernicus.eu, based on
satellite data, plus four-day forecasts - also
specifically for Krakow.
Road works still paralyze central Krakow
play havoc with public transport in the city. Now
the situation seems worse than ever. At the same
due to the overhaul of railways, some
trains of the line Krakow Airport-Krakow Glowny and/or
Krakow Glowny-Wieliczka may be temporarily cancelled or replaced with buses
between 9.30 am and 2.30 pm on weekdays.
