ROOMS Matejko

The hotel interior designed by a Cracow’s well known design office, SAO, shows the variability and diversity of the history of Polish painting.

Matejko rooms, which are located on the first two floors of the building, depict a rich bourgeois tradition full of intensive colours like the wonderful historic art created by Jan Matejko.

Jan Matejko – painter associated with Cracow, the most prominent representative of historicism in Polish painting.

The nearby square was named in his honour. He was the first dean and co-founder of the neighbouring Academy of Fine Arts.

Matejko’s work was very distinctive and different from what was painted at the time.

The artist distinguished himself from others by painting panoramic compositions rich in expression and dynamism, intensive colours, and attention to detail. The creation of very pronounced characters and recreation of the authentic clothing and interior design was important to the artist. Matejko wished to awaken patriotism and will to fight in the Polish nation with his art, which we can see in the choice of subjects for his work.
