Krakon 2013 – The Alternative Cultures’ Festival

July, 25-28th, 2013


It’s the third edition of a renewed fantastic convention held in Cracow (Kraków), Poland. Science fiction, fantasy, horror, anime and manga took a central space last year. This year it’ll be steampunk and post-apocalypse. And … lots of fun of course. Organisers of the festival also  announced a writing contest.
