Cafe Kossakówka workshop. The villa of Wojciech Kossak

Cafe Kossakówka workshop. Wojciech Kossak's villa in Jurata.

The Polish painter, Wojciech Kossak, spent almost every summer in Jurata. He had his villa here, in a modernist style, typical of the Jurassic buildings of the interwar period.

Fascinated by Jurata, he spent his holidays here and created his masterpieces. Now, in this place, we can drink good coffee and eat a filling breakfast.

Strolling through the streets of Jurata, it is worth stopping here for a moment. Currently, the villa has a cafe in the style of the era - Pracownia Cafe Kossakówka.

The painter stayed there until the outbreak of World War II, and he once wrote to his friend:

I will stay here as long as I can, I still have a full gasoline reservoir in my car ... and if they start bombing Hel and Jurata from there - that's great!
