Please note that, with the exception of the summer camp program, food and lodging are NOT included in the program fee for this placement. ELI has a relationship with several hotels and guesthouses in the city and can help to organize a reasonably priced room that matches your needs. Room rates are generally between $15 and $30 per night.
Placements can last any length of time from 2 to 8 weeks. Programs are flexible and participants can begin anytime. Placements begin on Mondays, so we recommend arriving Friday-Sunday to allow for orientation and acclimation. Please note that programs in the city of Krakow are not available during August.
