Home to the Silver Fowl

One of Krakow’s most recognisable buildings, the Celestat is located in the Shooters Garden is the historical residence of the Fowler Brotherhood. The Neo-Gothic palace was built in 1837. This is where you can learn the true history of the Silver Fowl, allegedly presented by no one else than King Sigismund Augustus himself to the Kraków Sharpshooters’ Association in 1565. The symbol and most precious treasure of the Sharpshooters’ Association, incorporated in Kraków in the 13th century to defend the city against its enemies, is the Silver Fowl.

In existence since the end of the 13th century, the history of the Brotherhood and their role in the defence of the city is laid out courtesy of a series of oil paintings, guns, teapots, photographs and other relics. Additionally, the venue nowadays hosts numerous exhibitions and events. It can capacitate up to 200 guests and is perfect for events with a historic background.
