Art and Bar in Old Town

Art, in particular photography and painting, plays a significant role in modern Poland, and a lot of this takes place at grassroots level in innumerable bars and cafés.

Many act as exhibition spaces, ranging from suave virtual galleries with a bar attached to crowded bohemian spots where a few kind words may get you a fortnight's showing. Further, there are bars that in their very eccentricity are in fact works of art themselves.
