A small, intimate and friendly cafe/bar that also serves as a rotating gallery decked out with paintings, ceramics, glassware, angels and other little trinkets. They’re all for sale, and best of all you can tank back some caffeine while mulling over what from the walls will end up in your suitcase. The clientele is a unique and authentic mix of people from the neighbourhood, tourists staying in the upstairs guestrooms, and gruff, off-duty cabbies. There’s also a stack of boardgames and the choice of beers outdoes many of Kraków’s better known bars, with a range of local liquids and microbrews that will leave you with furry memories of Poland.
This friendly, family-run outfit on a quiet Old Town side-street offers six cosy, modest rooms above the cafe, which does double service as the hotel’s reception; as such the cafe is actually a great place to meet and interact with other guests and plan your time in Kraków.
The Indalo is a prehistoric, magical symbol found in the cave of “Los Letreros” in Andalusia in Spain. It has a Levantine origin and dates back to 2500 BC.
Legend has it that the Indalo was a ghost that could hold and carry a rainbow in his hands (thus the arch over the head of the man). The symbol has been adopted as the official emblem of the Almería, where it’s also used as a lucky charm in. It is a custom to paint the Indalo symbol on the front of houses and businesses to protect them from evil.
Thus Indalo is for good luck!
