How do you buy books in Kraków? Slowly and thoughtfully, or perhaps on a whim when a cover or title catches your eye? After a meeting with an author, or a long chat with the bookseller, or after browsing all bookshelves? One thing’s for certain: from one of the independent bookshops in the Old Town, Kazimierz, Podgórze or Nowa Huta! Between 24 November and 8 December you can cast your vote – in person or online – for your favourite places on the city’s literary map as part of the annual competition for bookshop of the year.

The Bookshops of the Year poll was first held in 2017. Since then, the Quality Mark of the Kraków UNESCO City of Literature programme and corresponding diplomas have been awarded to De Revolutionibus Books & Café, Kurant Music Bookshop, Massolit Books & Café, MUZA II Bookshop, bookshop of the WAM Publishing House, the Main Academic Bookshop, MOCAK Bookstore, Szafa Pełna Książek (which has since moved all its activities online), and the abovementioned Karakter, Spółdzielnia Ogniwo and Café NOWA Bookshop. This year’s winners will be revealed on 13 December, on the Poland’s Bookseller Day.
