The Krakow Post is an English-language newspaper based in Krakow, Poland.
Owned by Lifeboat Limited since 2008, the monthly newspaper covers local and national news, politics, culture, business, sports, and human interest stories.[1]


Originally founded as a weekly in 2007, the newspaper was then led by Editor-in-Chief Anne Fratczak and Founding Editor Hal Foster, a former Los Angeles Times journalist.[2][3]

After coming under new ownership in 2008, the Krakow Post was redesigned as a monthly newspaper, with Anna Spysz serving as the editor-in-chief until late 2010.
In January 2011, Jamie Stokes took over her role at the newspaper's helm.[4]

In 2011, The New York Times referred to the Krakow Post and other English-language press in Eastern Europe as having acted as "springboards for a generation of American journalists interested in working in the former East Bloc — though not in the servile role of many local publications." [5]

The Krakow Post came under new management and was relaunched in a magazine format in November 2012.
Published under license by Krakow Media, the Krakow Post has a varied circulation and is distributed to approximately 200 locations in Krakow.[6]
