Emergency help in your language on your mobile
Foreigners in Kraków will be able to get emergency help in their own language on mobile phones from June 1, when a special hotline is launched.
The city council, police and other emergency services have teamed up to provide the hotline, which will also provide information about tourist attractions and more in the city. It will connect the office for foreigners with city security and tourist offices.
However, the service will be seasonal, and will run only until September 30, during the hours of 8am to 10pm. Information will be available in English, German and Russian.
The emergency numbers are: +48 608 599 999 and + 48 22 278 77 77. Fees for calls are set by network operators.
