World Youth Day

Mass gatherings bring together people from all over the world. Poland will host World Youth Day in Kraków from July 25 to 31, 2016.  If you are planning to travel to participate in World Youth Day, there are some particular risks to keep in mind. Large numbers of people in small areas can enable the spread of infectious diseases and increase the risk of injury. Take the time to prepare for your trip and know how to reduce the risks.

Expect higher volumes of traffic, street closures, delays and disruptions in transportation as well as limited availability of accommodations in the lead-up to and during this event.

Find out what you need to do before you go by reading our travel advice for Poland. Remember to register your trip with us and carry our contact information in case of emergency.
