A visit to Kłodzko is an opportunity to see many of its historical sites and participate in cultural, sports and leisure events organised throughout the year across many different locations such as the market square, the square under St. John’s Bridge (access from Daszyńskiego or Matejki Street), Strażacki Park (Traugutta Street), and the stadium (Kusocińskiego Street) and the Kruczkowskiego housing estate.

Various concerts, exhibitions and theatre performances are hosted by the Kłodzko Centre of Culture, Sports and Recreation, the Museum of the Kłodzko Region and the Centre for Christian Culture. Classical music concerts are also organised in the churches. Kłodzko Fortress offers many attractions including events related to the history of the site as well as concerts and sports events in unusual and picturesque settings. Other interesting events take place in the Kłodzko Fortress shopping centre and cinema complex at Noworudzka Street away from the centre of the town.

The Kłodzko Centre of Culture, Sports and Recreation is located in a historical building at Jagiełło Square and in a former life was the Kaiserhof Hotel. It has a large auditorium and an art galley. Cultural events are also held in the cafeteria. The centre is home to the Kłodzko Photo Club which puts on photographic exhibitions in collaboration with its Czech counterpart. One of the main events organised by the centre is “Clash” – an international theatre festival. The summer edition features street-theatre performances while major Polish and international theatres arrive in November for big stage shows for the autumn edition of the festival.

In addition to temporary and permanent exhibitions, the Museum of the Kłodzko Region organises previews of art exhibitions, chamber music concerts, lectures and workshops for children and adults which are held in a historic concert hall, a workshop hall located in a former carpentry and at the courtyard, each with its own unique ambience. Every May the museum remains open late into the night to celebrate the Long Night of Museums, hosting interesting events, artistic performances and unusual installations. It also organises tours of the town with elements of set dressing as well as childrens workshops which are mainly held during the summer and winter holidays.

The Centre for Christian Culture is located in the Kruczkowskiego housing estate, in a former chapel at Stefana Wyszyńskiego Street. The events held there are organised by The Education Society of Kłodzko and the local Holy Cross Parish. The centre does not operate on a daily basis, but information on upcoming events can be found on posters, banners and in the local media.

Classical music enthusiasts are invited to the Church of Our Lady of the Rosary at Franciszkański Square, the Church of the Assumption of Mary at the Kościelny Square and the St. George and St. Adalbert Church on Łukasińskiego Street.

The Fortress Days are the most important item in Kłodzko’s calendar of events. Held in August, the event is celebrated in the fortress itself and in the surroundings areas. Visitors can watch a historical re-enactment of the Napoleonic troops’ assault on the town, visit a military camp and stand side by side with the Kłodzko regiment’s soldiers. You are also invited to take part in various activities and field games across all seasons of the year, some of which are co-organised in collaboration with the Kłodzko Brotherhood of Knights.

There are also interesting sports events and shows, including spectacular downhill shows, cowboy-style horse riding, martial arts shows and a traditional Kłodzko Lion car rally. The racecourse starts in the centre of the town, then zigzags along local country roads and finally ends back in town.

If you’re tired after a long sightseeing tour, you can relax and refresh in an indoor swimming pool on Jana Pawła II Street which is open all year round. In addition to a regular swimming pool, the facility offers swimming courses, a paddling pool, a water slide, a Jacuzzi, a lazy river, as well as a sauna and steam room.  

During the summer time, the stadium operates an outdoor swimming pool, volleyball court and playground. A large ice rink is also open there in the winter months.
