Explore Poland during WAKO European Cadet and Junior Championship

 

The adventure under the ground - Wieliczka Salt Mine

Magnificent chambers chiseled out in rock salt. Amazing underground saline lakes, majestic timber constructions and unique statues sculpted in salt. Almost 3 kilometers of meandering corridors, 800 steps to climb of which 350 have to be descended to reach the depth of 135 meters underground.

The journey starts at the Danilowicz Shaft. Here, visitors meet their guide, who during their excursion will tell them everything they want to know about the mine history and its secrets. About the forces of nature ruling within the depths of the mine, about the ethos of hard work performed by the generations of miners. Travelling further and further into the mine chasm tourists discover unusual places and see with their own eyes the power of human hands that once excavated rock salt, as well as magnificent mining tools and machines.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to see a completely different image of the mine hearing the legend about Princess Kinga and how she brought the salt treasure to Polish land. Half way along the route they will see the wondrous chapel dedicated to her and the saline works of art decorating the chapel. Visitors will have a moment for reflection hearing the music of Chopin accompanying a light and sound spectacle on the shores of one of the saline lakes.

As they say in the mine – back to the world.

The City of Kings – for everyone, who want to explore the beauty of Cracow

A Cracow Walking Tour is the perhaps the best way to start your sightseeing in Krakow and to familiarize yourself with the city’s stunning medieval Old town.

The main focus of the old town walking tour is ‘The Royal Route’ which runs from the Barbican, through the florian gate down Florianska street, then down Grodzka street via the main square to Wawel castle, linking most of Krakow’s old town landmarks.

The Royal Route leads us to mecca of every Pole and a must for foreign tourists, the Wawel Hill is a microcosm of Polish history and culture. From the 11th century on Poland's monarchs took up their residence here in the Royal Castle. And they were both crowned and buried here in the Wawel Cathedral. The place overflows with art treasures, architectural beauties, relics of the past and curiosities. It is also full of glory, magic, history and fable.

After that the guides show us Krakow's central square, the largest of medieval European cities, is arguably one of the world’s most beautiful plazas. It boasts a plethora of landmarks and myriad restaurants, clubs, and cafes.

In the end we will visit the ancient city of Kazimierz used to be its medieval rival. The area contains many landmarks and the former Kazimierz Jewish Quarter, one of the main centers of Diaspora in the past.
