March of the Dachshunds!!!

I have just heard of this over on the Hungary Forum.

tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g274881-i262-k7228…

Does anyone know when this is held (and why)? This looks a lot better than the running of the bulls, and I have added it to my "Bucket List". I intend to participate with my loyal hound. Do you know of hotels that will take dogs? Do I need to register or just show up? When and where? Any other related activities? Do we win a pirogi for best costume? We have been to Krakow, but only for two days, which was not nearly enough, so we intend much more time there this time. Are there other places, especially restaurants we can take the wonder hound?

Thank you in advance.

It's organised for fun by Radio Krakow (our local public radio station), usually on the first or second weekend of September. You don't need to register - just show up. The parade starts at the Barbakan and walks through town. There are a few tables where you can consult a vet, get some advice on feeding your dog, get them microchipped etc. Last year, for the first time there was a prize (a certificate) for the longest daschund - until then, the prizes were given for the best costume.

Poland's pretty strict on where they can allow dogs (you're not even allowed to take them in to the Post Office) so I think you'll find it difficult to find places that will let you eat inside with your dog.

This is all great information! Can the dogs sit under the table at outside cafes? Also, are there hotels close to the parade that accept pets?

We ate at a restaurant that said it was almost 700 years old. It was just by the town square. Does anyone know the name of this place and any other history?
