Kraków edition of Monopoly in the pipeline

A Kraków edition of the classic game Monopoly is due to be released this autumn, and the most expensive and cheapest properties have already been decided in a public vote.11043409_946767118675102_9127463680525827262_o

Over the last few days, listeners of Radio Kraków and readers of Gazeta Wyborcza were given the opportunity to vote for the best and worst properties respectively.
Radio Kraków listeners voted overwhelmingly in favour of the Wawel citadel as the top property (62 percent), while Gazeta Wyborczareaders picked Stalinist-era settlement Nowa Huta as bottom of the heap (35 percent).Runners-up for best property included the Main Market Square (16 percent) and Floriańska Street (7 percent), while at the other end of the spectrum, the Podgórze district (18 percent) came in second behind Nowa Huta.Peculiarly, although Podgórze was considered to be beyond the pale by many of the city’s inhabitants until recent years, the once down-at-heel district is now among the city’s most fashionable.

The first Warsaw edition of Monopoly was released in 1992, and Gdańsk was given its own version in November 2014. Kraków joins the group 80 years after the first ever edition was released in the US in 1935, when Atlantic City served as the prototype.
