The Energopol Company will build two bicycle paths. It will be the section on Wielicka from Jaksa Street to Teligi (1.52 km) and from Teligi Street to Ćwiklińskiej (1.75 km). The first part will cost 2 million zł and the second – 1.7 million zł. The works are to be completed by December 15, and the warranty will be valid for 10 years.
The bidding process is about to commence for two additional two paths, on routes Opolska – Conrada and Obrońców Krzyża – Bulwarowa.
According to city officials, Cracow will have 140 km of bike paths by the end of 2019. Within two years, residents of the southern part of the city will have more than 10 kilometers of trails, which will make it easier and quicker to go by bike to the city center.
“We are beginning the construction of one of the most anticipated cycling paths, connecting the Vistula Boulevards with the south of Cracow.” – said Krzysztof Migdał of ZIKiT.
Additional plans include building three new routes within the Malopolska Cycling Routes, Vistula Cycling Route (5 million zł), Velo Rudawy (8 million zł) and Velo Prądnik (7.5 million zł).
Trying To Rent For Under 1,000zl? Tough But Not Impossible
Cracow is a rapidly developing urban and academic center. Almost 200,000 students study here. For several years now, the large international corporations have been opening new centers creating attractive jobs that attract young people.
Moving to a new city is a significant challenge. This is true whether one is relocating from one big city to another, or from a small town to a large metropolis, although no doubt the latter situation is more difficult. Those coming from a smaller city may initially find it difficult adjusting to life in a crowded and busy city.
Of course, there are housing issues. Few people immediately decide to purchase an apartment. When moving to an unfamiliar city, it is difficult to choose a place where you could possibly spend the rest of your life. In the beginning, it is best to rent an apartment and learn more about the neighbourhood and the city itself.
Renting an apartment is a big expense, especially for a young person, who is pursuing their first job. Although there are many offers on the rental market in Cracow, finding decent housing at an affordable price is relatively difficult.
Below are some rental offers for apartments in Cracow posted on Otodom.pl, whose monthly rent does not exceed 1000 zł. Remember- We must also add administrative costs and other expenses to this amount. Notice- Apartments that rent for less than 1000zl account for only 2% of total rental offers listed on the site.
The total monthly fee, where the rent doesn’t exceed 1000 zł, will be close to 1200-1400 zł, depending on the heating. As pointed out by Agata Polińska from Otodom.pl, such apartments are in high demand, especially if they are in good condition. Of course, for 1000 zł you cannot expect something fully modern and very fashionable, but one can still find a nice and attractive apartment at a good price. People who are looking for a high standard and do not want to pay 1800 zł to rent a studio can always rent a room in a very modern shared apartment.
