Plastic is not fantastic. Bonarka launches an educational project

In our center, we implement the educational project "Don't be plastic", which is part of the strategy of socially responsible business.
The basic assumption of the "Do not be plastic" project is education by increasing awareness of the dangers arising from the non-reflective use of plastic packaging (in particular made of non-biodegradable materials).

ECO-box in Bonarka

The appearing of the ECO-BOX in Bonarka is part of a wider educational campaign organized by MPO Krakow, which is to sensitize for the proper utilization of the so called problem waste - electro-waste and medical waste. Thanks to it, the center's customers will get rid of unwanted items in an environmentally safe way.
You can throw various types of electrowaste into the ECO BOX, including batteries, CDs and DVDs, light bulbs, cables and small electronics.

About us

About us

The Bonarka City Center was opened on 21 November 2009 as the “new urban centre”. BCC is a contemporary interpretation of the streets and marketplaces network. The building was constructed from high-quality natural materials (stone, wood, glass). The selection of materials used on the façade and elevation reflects the industrial past of the area and refers to a traditional metropolitan shopping arcade present in the building development of Polish cities at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries.


The glass surfaces that cover the complex have been designed to let through as much natural light as possible. Skylights framed by brick walls make the interiors look as if bathed in light. The unusual design is also highlighted by golden and almost white granite on the floor that gives passageways and streets additional warmth.


The square with a unique fountain is the most characteristic place in the whole Bonarka centre. There are three huge pavilions which feature cosy coffee and cake shops designed as a combination of beams and arched pillars made from glued timber located in the main passageways. Wooden bridges bring different spaces together while glass and metal balustrades create typical urban atmosphere.


Basic figures:

  • Commercial space: over 92,000 sq.m;
  • Total space: 234,000 sq.m.;
  • 230 brands, including main tenants: Auchan, Cinema City, Media Expert, TK MAXX;
  • Over 30 restaurants and coffee shops;
  • 3,200 free parking spots;


Bonarka is a unique place in the Kraków’s landscape. It is a part of Podgórze, a historic district situated on the southern bank of the Vistula River. Since the end of the 19th century it had been the site of the Cement Factory. In 1948, using some of the old machinery, the Bonarka National Phosphates Factory was founded here. Later its name was changed to the Bonarka Chemical Factory. It was finally shut down in 2003.


Years of negligence, overexploitation and lack of care resulted in the destruction of the Bonarka’s premises. Its thorough recultivation was necessary to create a people-friendly urban development. It’s one of the biggest, if not the biggest, recultivation project of a former industrial plant in Poland. BCC is an example of comprehensive operations on three different levels (ecology, infrastructure and social function) fully funded by the investor.


Preparation of the premises included:


  • Recultivating the industrial site of the former Bonarka Chemical Factory, which consisted of demolition works (55,000 m³), removing sedimentation tanks filled with waste (calcium fluoride, ca. 210,000 tons), removing hot spots and levelling works. The investor’s expenditure was 11.6 million EUR.
  • Rebuilding and expanding the water and sewage system, the drainage system as well as the heating and gas system around the centre. The cost amounted to more than 300,000 EUR.
  • Rebuilding and expanding the transport system around the centre connected with the city road infrastructure, which significantly facilitated smooth and easy access to the whole complex as well as connected and activated the investment site of ca. 30 hectares around the BCC at the same time. All the road investments, fully funded by the investor, were granted to the City of Kraków. The investor’s expenditure for this purpose was 16.1 million EUR.

Bonarka has been supporting the Cracow Health Service in the fight against coronavirus with great commitment for over 2 months. The Shopping Center donated a total of thousands of masks, several hundreds of helmets, protective suits, disinfectant fluid, as well as packages with drinks and healthy food for medical staff to 5 hospitals and the Ambulance Service in Krakow.

At the very beginning of the coronavirus epidemic in Poland, the Krakow Health Service gained a very valuable ally – Bonarka. The Center has developed and implemented an original program of comprehensive support.
Its goal was to equip medical facilities with the lacking medical products. Bonarka works according to the idea of ​​the #GaleriesOpenToHelp action, which unites shopping centers to effectively help the industry fight coronavirus It is worth to mention that Bonarka was the only mall in Krakow to take care of five hospitals and emergency ambulance service. The center has become a leader in aid in the region.
Bonarka supported 6 medical centers in Krakow: the Krakow Specialist Hospital John Paul
II, Józef Dietl Specialist Hospital, Stefan Żeromski Specialist Hospital , University Hospital, University Children’s Hospital and an Emergency Ambulance Service.
In total, the Center donated almost 2,000 protective masks (fibrin and FFP2 types), almost 500
visors, 100 certified overalls, disinfectant, as well as packs of healthy food and drinks.
Materials provided by Bonarka are an important element of the personal protection of our medical staff – says dr hab. med. Szymon Skoczeń from the Children’s University Hospital in Krakow. Thank you very much for handing over such a priceless gift.

Bonarka’s aid is even more valuable because it contains medical supplies that are currently very difficult to access. Their number is also limited – adds Danuta Gilarska, President of the  KOLIBER Association for Children with Cancer. The Bonarka’s program was implemented in four stages from March to May. During this time, medical facilities involved in the fight against coronavirus were successfully reequiped. Donated medical products and packages with healthy food have contributed to increasing the comfort and safety of patients and medical staff. Bonarka’s activities are a model example of business responsibility for the local community.
