Welcome to the Janusz Korczak Youth Culture Center
in Krakow, Poland.

The Youth Culture Center (Młodzieżowy Dom Kultury) is an institution focused on the extracurricular development of children and young people offering a variety of activities: arts, sports and educational courses.

It promotes the literary and pedagogical heritage of its patron - dr Janusz Korczak who was a Polish-Jewish pediatrician, teacher, pedagogue and an author of children's books (including "King Matt the First"). He founded orphanages in Warsaw and cared for children during ward war II until his death in Treblinka in 1942.

We engage in various international and local projects including music festivals and concerts, choir workshops, cheerleading events, student exchanges and many others.
