Description
 
On Easter Monday everybody in Cracow heads for the Kosciuszko Mound -  a big colorful fair has been held in the Zwierzyniec district next to the Norbertine convent since the 12th century.
The history of the festival is connected with the tradition of a parish fair at the Church of the Most Holy Savior, called Emmaus.  The name refers to the passage of scripture read on that day in which there is a description of a meeting of Jesus with two disciples on the road to Emmaus.

This festivity is an occasion for large crowds of Cracovians and visitors to attend the folk garden party and fair. Fair stands and stalls are set up along the whole length of the Kosciuszko Street reaching the bridge over the Rudawa River. And because Easter Monday is called "Wet Monday", hordes of passers-by are soaked in water. Since 1976, the Emaus festivity has been organized under the auspices of the Krakow Historical Museum.
