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.

Useful art

Is there anything more beautiful than stunning art… that can be used? Lamps, mirrors, armchairs, chairs ... were all handcrafted with the greatest reverence to these dying skills and using noble materials such as brass, ceramic, glass, to produce not only beauty but to practical use.

Some people call it renovation, we call it reincarnation

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.

Piotr Micek

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.

Daria Wartalska

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.

Anna Żak

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.
