Our next stop was Krakus Mound in the Podgórze district (former independent city). We spoke about the spatial conflicts in the areas affected by the tragic historical events - here, the Kraków-Płaszów concentration camp. Next site visited by the UDI-enthusiasts was Zabłocie area. Former industrial site that undergoes dynamic changes - from metallurgical and cosmetic industry center to the area famous of fashion and movie industry.
