About the WYD
We have various options of accommodation for the World Youth Day:
- World Youth Day Accommodation
- University Theatre Floor
- Studio Apartments
We feel the best option by far is the campsite we will use. It is about 20km from the centre of Krakow in a very beautiful valley. Have a look at the photos below.
With the campsite we will be able to offer the excitement and exhilaration of Krakow and the World Youth Day balanced with the peace and quiet of the stunning Polish mountains.
It will give people the time to have some space and some reflection in between the full-on experience of World Youth Day. We are also hoping to have music and events at the campsite so we have a relaxed festival feel to our accommodation.
Having been to World Youth Days and stayed in school halls, hostels, hotels and private houses - we think this will be the best experience of the lot!
The World Youth Day accommodation is only allocated at the last minute and it is very basic - sleeping on a school/church hall or staying with families. All of our team have used the WYD accommodation in the past - but I would say that it is unlikely to be suitable for under 18s simply because you don't know where you are staying before you get there. Therefore, we don't have any photos.
We prefer the campsite to the University - however, it is very central and only 10 mins from the City Centre - there are various sized rooms so if you are booking for a group you will need to check with us whether the rooms suit the size of your group. Therefore, we can't guarantee it would be suitable for schools' child protection policy - e.g. the layout, the bathrooms and supervision by teachers.
We prefer the campsite to the apartments - but most importantly for school groups, we are unsure whether having apartments of 1 people would be suitable for schools' child protection policy - e.g. the layout, the bathrooms and supervision by teachers.
We feel the campsite is preferable to the hostel - but most importantly for school groups, we are unsure whether the set up would be suitable for schools - e.g. the layout and the bathrooms
