Mozartiana was inaugurated in Mozart Year 2006. The Festival reaches a wide audience with its diversity. It features not only classical performances of symphonic and chamber pieces and opera music concerts but also jazz, ethnic and folk music concerts inspired by Mozart’s oeuvre.

The dates of the Festival coincide with the summer high season, and it is an excellent proposition for the Polish and international tourists who flock to Gdańsk. Today, Mozartiana brings together over 20,000 spectators attracted by its extraordinary views: artistic illumination of the Park’s historical greenery, actors dressed in period clothing walking about and the Dancing Fountain show. 

 Another important component of the Festival is children’s events that stimulate kids’ imaginations and teach them to listen to classical music.
