Salwator

Before World War I, on the south-eastern slope of the hill called Sikornik, the Society for the Construction of Cheap Housing Houses planned the construction of a residential and clerical estate. The competition for the design of the estate was announced in 1908, and it was won by Roman Bandurski, and many houses with interesting Art Nouveau décor were built relatively quickly. The road connecting the Kościuszko Mound with Zwierzyniec was built in the years 1844-1847. It was funded by the owner of Mydlnik, Franciszek Ciesielski. The tram line connecting Salwator with the city center was established in 1917. The present Salwator stretches halfway to the Kościuszko Mound and continues along the Vistula River. Many artists, painters, writers live here, one of the oldest churches in Krakow is located here – dedicated to the Most Holy Savior, and there is also a cemetery where many outstanding people associated with Krakow are buried. An interesting fact is that Salwator has its own newspaper called Salwator – Świat.
