Grzegórzki. The first mention of this district comes from the late 14th c. It was the property of the city and also its larder. In the 19th c. industry developed here; both new factories and those transferred from the city centre, the largest being Zieleniewski’s factory that made heavy metal structures. In made Grzegórzki one of the most industrialised suburban, and later urban, neighbourhoods. In 1910 it became part of Kraków.
The district boasts the Kraków Botanical Garden, and the trading exchange composed of the municipal covered market (Hala Targowa) and an open market. Food is still sold here during the week, while on Sundays it turns into a flea market with second-hand books and old bric-a-brac. This is also where you come after dusk for the legendary Sausages from the Blue Van (Kiełbaski z Niebieskiej Nyski).
