A lot of different initiatives have been started in Krakow over the years. If you find any of them interesting feel free to contact them. Or if you would like to start a group of your own, feel free to contact us for friendly advice and we'll make sure to include you on our webpage.
Do you like to sing? Do you like to have fun? Come join the CoperniChoir! We are 30 song-loving, fun-having boys and girls who meet up twice a month to sing. We mostly sing Norwegian songs, like the National anthem and other "17th of May songs". From the fall 2012, there will be auditions to join the choir, and everybody are welcome to try out. We especially need boys/men. You don't have to know Norwegian, but you do have to be interested in singing songs in Norwegian. We also sing some songs in English. Is this something that you want to be a part of? Don't hesitate, send us an email!

Jagiellonian Rowing Club can offer you the best social atmosphere with an unique athletic spirit! Join this winning team and have the opportunity to represent the university in regattas worldwide! Teams organized both for men and women! A trial will be held in the beginning of October.
Surprisingly, Krakow has great roads for roadbiking, and it’s a great opportunity to see the countryside and get some fresh air when on a bicycle. We have used the autumn and the early spring, and found some nice routes without too much traffic suitable for cycling. Now we would like more Copernica members to join us. We are planning to have one training during the week and one every Sunday. You don`t have to be Lance Armstrong to come with us (no EPO necessary). With the help of Copernica we have purchased two CoperniCycles that you can rent if you want to give road biking a try. Send us an email, or visit the group on facebook. We are now over 20 riders, covering the whole spectrum from rookie to old champ.
