Approximately 50 kilometers southwest of Krakow lies the almost 20,000-strong town of Wadowice, famous as the birthplace of Karol Wojtyla, later Pope John Paul II. Today we will not only follow in the footsteps of the Pope, but also look into history.
In the coming weeks, we will discover the wonderful natural and cultural attractions of the Duchy of Lesser Poland. Our starting point will be the city of Zakopane, which is also a social center of the whole region.
Last week we visited the Kościelisko and Chochołowska valleys and today we set out for other tourist attractions in the Lesser Poland Region. This time we will not leave the city of Zakopane, our goal will be an elongated hill Gubałówka.
Enchanted by our past trip to the Gubałówka and Butorowy Wierch mountains, today we set out to explore other breathtaking places in Lesser Poland. This time we head to the village of Poronin, which is located about 7 kilometers from Zakopane.
This time we will set out to explore southern Poland, more precisely the city of Żywiec, which lies at the confluence of the rivers Koszarawa and Soła in the Silesian Voivodeship. We start in a local brewery founded in 1856, which produces one of the most famous beers in Poland.
After visiting the famous brewery, today we will head to the town of Żywiec itself. This city of 30,000 is an ideal starting point for hiking in the Western Beskydy Mountains, it also offers recreation at the picturesque Żywiec Dam and attractive sights with an engaging history.
These days we commemorate the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II. One of the most important milestones in our history is remembered through a visit to the Polish city of Auschwitz, which is located at the mouth of the river Soly to the Vistula in the Lesser Poland Voivodeship.
Krakow - that amazing, charismatic, and historic city is so full of interesting landmarks that to spend only one weekend is almost like not being there at all. Maybe you have already heard that Krakow has been becoming the city of bars. Resutanrats, clubs, candy shops, pijalnie wódky… There is one place next to another all of them being great. Once you get enough refreshed take a look around. The Jewish quarter of Kazimierz, the old Stare Miasto, Rynek Główny, Wawel castle and the cathedral - the most sacred place in Poland. All of these sights on just couple of square kilometers - just enough to get to know it during a weekend.
Summer holidays are an ideal time for family trips, so today we invite you to one of these. Our destination will be the Polish village of Nedeca (Niedzica), located in the Spis region, near the Slovak border in Lesser Poland.
Cracow was Polish capital in past. Now, this city belongs to most beautiful architectonical jewels of Europe. The whole town is respiring with Middle Age, and such impression is stressed even with unusual big number of green surface which is frequently missing in big towns.
The university town of Cracow is a metropolis of Small Poland Dukedom in South Poland, inhabited with 800000 people. It is marvellous historical town friendly sympathized with artists and busy cultural life, and local people who are ready to keep their old customs and traditional ceremonies.
The world's unique sight in the south of Poland attracts more than a million tourists to local countryside. The salt world, which has been created for centuries by the mining of salt, has not left us indifferent either. Therefore, let us expose the history and the presence of this extraordinary place in the following lines.
Descend with us to the underground corridors and salt mine chambers, where you can see for yourself the spaces in which salt has been harvested for centuries. Unique space will be surprising especially by the number of original works of art. In the following lines, we are going to admire the attractions along the first half of the tour route.
The first half of the journey underground has fascinated us with its spaces and the legend carved in the rock, but it is not far from everything the mine offers to its visitors. So come go deeper, into its corridors and chambers, to places where crystal chandeliers and salty mining ponds glitter.
In previous articles, we looked into the corridors and chambers of the Wieliczka Salt Mine and remembered its rich history. But the mine also hides its soul in the form of chapels, which the miners regularly visited for prayer. Therefore, we will go to these places in the following lines and go through a special pilgrimage route through the mine.
The Wieliczka Salt Underground intends to attract tourists at any time of year, so here they do not forget the trends that modern times bring. After the tour you do not have to rush to the surface, but for example you can enjoy some of the typical Polish cuisine.
When one hears about Wieliczka, perhaps every one of us will come across the famous salt mine in southern Poland. This city of the same name offers tourists not only the beauty of their underground, but it also pays off to explore what it offers above ground. Before looking into the ancient depths, we walk through the monuments in the streets that remind us of the rich history of this mining town.
