Alfa Centrum located at the junction of Midsummer and Mickiewicz, in the heart of Bialystok is the largest center in the area.
The gallery was opened on October 15, 2008. During construction, the historic walls of the former Becker factory dating back to 1895 were retained. Until 2006, the building was occupied by the Biruna Products Factory. Construction of the building was commenced during March 2007. During construction, JWK-Invest, the investor, made the decision to destroy a part of the building. Many of the other buildings have been restored, such as the stables situated next to the Museum of Alfons Karny, the old mill, the palace and the construction of Mercury. This prompted the inclusion of old buildings into the modern interior and resulted in a gallery with taste and style.
It blends tradition and modern trends comfortably. Historic buildings surround the modern interior of the structure. It offers visitors a range of the best international and Polish brand names, restaurants, cafes, a cinema, as well as a climbing wall. It is the perfect place for family leisure, shopping, and entertainment.
The center is situated at the junction of Mickiewicz and Midsummer, and can easily be reached on bus lines 4, 7, 8, 10, 19, 24 and 26. There is no problem with gaining access from the intersection as new traffic arrangements have been introduced. There is underground parking available for around 800 vehicles.
