There is a tiny, mostly immigrant Muslim community in Krakow. The city lacks a mosque so its Muslims gather for Friday prayer in the building of the Studium Jezyka Polskiego of the Politechnika Krakowska University of Technology, 1 Skarzynskiego street, from noon to 2 p.m.

Found this on the web. If you go there, you may well be invited home for a meal. Sounds good to me. Might try it myself.

There are some Turkish and Arab places - mostly kebabs, and in Kazimierz there are some kosher restaurants.

There might be kebab in Krakow city centre, dozens of them really, but none halal. You ll rather find a pork one than halal...
Some brothers in Krakow get together and order halal meat from other city I don't know details, but if you don't live there and don't know brothers that would be difficult way.

Definitely no halal restaurants, nearest halal shop is in Katowice - 1h drive west from Krakow.

Inshallah it is going to change considering how many Muslims migrated to the city, but for now there are pure vegetarian restaurants. minimum 3 of them in the centre plus number of milky bars, but you have to be specific when you order - no animal fat or gelatine. Polish people do not have much idea what does it mean vegetarian...

Reservoir, you're so funny. I know that Poland is big exporter of halal and kosher meat so it's weird that there are no such restaurants.

A bit far to travel, but there is actually a Halal kebab place in Olsztyn. The owner is Egyptian and has a certificate from the Imam in Warsaw to certify he uses Halal.

Ambassadors reside in Warsaw (Warszawa - the capital of Poland), not in Kraków. There's a mosque in Warsaw.

from another color,religion, nationality, believes, communities, sects, thats really scared and ugly,
I live in a city with over 195 nationality and over 20 religions and barely you can touch a different , what the hell is going on here folks.

This forum seems to attract foreign dregs of society for some reason.

My theory is that some people are attracted to Poland because it is one of the more homogeneuos countries around, still with the very small ethnic diversity. By "some people" I mean those that routinely thank God that they've been born white caucasians. ;)

In your profile you describe yourself as "Dubai Expatriate".

It's not clear if you are an Emirati or a foreigner living in Dubai.

In any case here is a published account regarding foreigners living in Dubai which you are free to confirm or refute:

Citizenship - Is it possible to become a national of Dubai?

Dubai's government is keen to protect the status quo and doesn't want to compromise its cultural values or standard of living by allowing foreigners to become a permanent part of society. Your only route to becoming a naturalised citizen is by marriage to a national; even this, however, doesn't guarantee citizenship, particularly for non-Muslims.

Source: justlanded

So what the hell is going on in Dubai? It seems to me you are perfectly fine with foreigners being literally kept in permanent second class status (yes status not citizenship) in Dubai where they are valued only for their labor until they become old or infirm. Then it is time for them to go and be replaced by another foreigner on a temporary work permit.

It seems to be quite popular nowadays to serve food in old houses with old furnishing. The chain Polskie Jadlo has adopted this idea as well. If not visiting these places too often they are quite.

Jewish kosher slaughter and Muslim Halal slaughter is illegal in Germany, because this is animal abuse .. Europeans get angry when someone try to bring this weird, pervert, sadistic "tradition" into Europe.

Be vegetarian or Have a good trip HOME!

Europeans get angry

Most don't.

In any case, all killing for food is unnecessary in Europe where we can eat a good diet that doesn't involve animals. No matter how nice they taste.

BTW, opinions differ on which methods are more or less cruel. Having seen animals being slaughtered on farms here in PL, the method used seemed about the same as I've seen in Muslim parts of Africa.

To the OP, these websites may be useful to you:

Salam, are there any stores in Olsztyn where one can purchase halal meat?

There's a prayer room in the University - asking there would probably be your best bet. There isn't really much of a Muslim community there except for students. There are a few from Saudi, so for sure they'll have a source of meat.
