"The opening of another store in Galeria Młociny shows the power of attraction of this place, which is created by unique architecture, location and thoughtful tenant-mix. We hope that our guests will quickly learn about a unique nature of our mall and it will become their favourite place both for shopping and for spending free time" says Rafał Lisak, Director of Galeria Młociny from EPP, that will ultimately manage the complex.
New, mixed-use centre of Bielany
