The Millennium Night
It has been years since Krakow residents and guests began gathering in the Main Market Square on New Year’s Eve to celebrate the coming of the New Year together in mirth and merrymaking watching the special programmes prepared by the City especially for that night. This year, this will be a very special occasion: the end of the century, the end of the millennium, and also the end of the Krakow 2000 Festival which was the focus of attention of all Krakow culture lovers for the last five years. There should, therefore, be little wonder in the fact that this year’s party in the Market Square, held as a part of the Krakow 2000 Festival, was designed to be a very special event: the Millennium Night Show directed by Andrzej Horuba³a, will definitely enter the history of the city as a memorable event.
However splendid it will be, the festive farewell to the Krakow 2000 Festival will not repress in any way what the New Year’s Eve should be for tens of thousands of people gathered here. Among the performers we will see the stars of Polish pop music as well as Transsylvanians from Hungary. After midnight, there will appear the true legend of the Polish rock stage: Perfect: one of the first groups established early in the 1980s which became the greatest legend of Polish rock. The celebration of the New Year will end at about 2 a.m. though the atmosphere of this strange night will definitely stay with us much longer. We wish you the most enjoyable night of the millennium!!!
