Wow Of The Week
Hotel Saski: Krakow's cultural heritage rediscovered
Krakow is a European metropolis that year after year attracts crowds of tourists enchanted by its incredibly long history. The former capital of Poland holds many cultural treasures, and one of them is undoubtedly the Saski Hotel, where the first guests arrived over 200 years ago. Today, located in the historic center of Krakow, the property is captivating once again thanks to the architects from Db Group, who undertook the challenging task of renovating its common areas to not only recreate the spirit of bygone eras but also preserve most of the historical elements such as stucco, polychromes, and the antique elevator. The hotel's interiors are filled with references to the rich musical heritage of the former ballroom where great artists such as Brahms, Liszt, and Paderewski performed.
The Saski Curio Collection by Hilton hotel project was recognized in this year's edition of the Poland Property Design Awards in the category of the best hotel interior in 2023. We invite you to watch the episode of WOW of The Week, in which we journey to Poland. Together with Jarosław Putaj, Hospitality & Project Leader at GROHE Poland, LIXIL EMENA, we will explore the historic center of Krakow, which has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. We will also meet with the founder of Db Group, Małgorzata Jezierska, who will talk about the concept and realization of the interior reconstruction project of the Saski Hotel.
