We've already turned a hotel into an art gallery, and now we're taking it a few steps further...
A very own art atelier
We create art not only by providing the highest quality services and amenities but also by outstanding artistic work. Just over 100 meters from the hotel, in the iconic Pokoyhof Passage, there is the atelier of Martin Litwa - the artist and Europeum art curator, where many works were created that you can now admire on the premises of the facility. We can arrange for you a short trip to see the beating heart of Europeum.
Some people call it renovation, we call it reincarnation
We believe that vintage furniture has a special soul and that is why over the years Marcin has built up Europeum's collection of the vintage designed piece of this furniture for the Europeum browsing through markets and vintage design shops across Europe. Lovingly and with the devotion to details he has restored many pieces to the former glory and they can be found enjoying their second, better life serving our guests at the Europeum.
Art curator at Europeum

Marcin is developing new, but also combines different techniques and styles. “Applied art is the basis that enriches everyday life. Designing it is a kind of duty/service for me. Useful art makes the life of others becomes fuller, simpler, but at the same time more beautiful. And I? I feel like I am becoming a better person ”. His Atelier is located less than 200 meters from the Europeum Hotel. Do you want to see it - for those interested, a special visit can be arranged.

Marcin Litwa's atelier
Less than 200 metres from the hotel, within the walls of the historic and iconic in Wroclaw Pokoyhof Passage, beats the heart of Europeum. It is here that art works and applied art are created, which you can admire throughout the building. Together with Marcin, the art is created by Oliwier Szymczakowski- Artistic and applied glass designer, blacksmith, locksmith and welder, who graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Wrocław, and Mikołaj Morcinek- a graduate of the Artistic Crafts Day Restoration at the Higher School of Artistic Crafts in Wrocław, who deals mainly with conservation of monuments. They work with glass, ceramics, wood, metal and together with Marcin Litwa they discover new artistic techniques and giving soul to our hotel.
The Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design, Department of Ceramic and Glass, Wrocław, Poland (MA 2010). He creates his paintings through a composition of multiplied elements that lead the eyesight from the whole to the detail. "It is important for me to be able to read these images as a whole while recognizing the value of the individual," explains Piotr. You can see it for yourself by admiring his works that hang in our rooms. Look carefully, Piotr also creates applied art, for example, mirrors.

Doctor of Sustainable Design, Master of Art History at the University of Wrocław, graduate of the Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem and the Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Fine Arts, Faculty of Ceramics and Glass, Wrocław (MA 2010). Recycling of glass requires the same amount of energy as new production. This issue became the basis of Wartalska's master's thesis, in which she designed a complete utility set made of disposable bottles with minimal energy consumption. This is how her path to sustainable design began. Daria continues to work with waste, ecological technologies, and socially responsible production processes. Her vision is to prove that design does not play a player role in mindless consumption, but plays a major role in the holistic use of products. She strives to (re) design objects in such a way that the resources used can live in the best possible way in the cycle of things.

The world of mirrors drew her in like a wonderland, in which she made herself at home for good. She makes them by hand, with attention to every detail. Using various handcraft techniques, it combines glass, wood, and metal, giving free rein to an imagination that knows no bounds. Anna learned glass design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Wrocław, and currently runs the "Inne Mirrors" studio.
Polish Poster School
In the corridors of the Euorpeum you can admire the outstanding works of the Polish School of Posters - the term was created in the 1960s for a group of Polish poster artists, appreciated all over the world (it is worth mentioning that the birth of Polish art poster dates back to 1899 from the special prints - "Interior" by Stanisław Wyspiański) They created unique, stylistically diverse posters on political, cultural and social issues. They were united by conciseness, irony, as well as the economy of form and innovative lettering. They are known as the "independence and sharpness of mind" style - just like Europeum.
