 4. Tatra Mountains, Zakopane ( Wednesday and Saturday )

Nestled at the foot of the spectacular Tatra Mountains, Zakopane is the winter sports capital of Poland and its most famous resort. During the winter, plentiful snow and challenging runs make for excellent skiing, while the summer months offer hikers mountain lakes, glacial valleys and waterfalls. The mountains are also home to a unique and diverse range of flora and fauna. Our tour starts with a ride up a funicular railway to the top of Mt. Gubałówka, where we have a wonderful view of the Tatras. After a short walk around the peak, we return down the funicular to visit the oldest part of Zakopane, where the old cottages of the Highlanders still stand, surrounded by ash trees and blackened by the sun. These wooden houses and churches were built in highlander style created by the remarkable Polish artist, Witkiewicz. In addition to the traditional mountain architecture, magnificent folk costumes and jewellery have also survived here to this day. To better experience the true Zakopane atmosphere, we take a walk along Krupówki, the central mall, lined with restaurants, cafes, boutiques and souvenir shops.

 5. The Wooden Architecture Route ( Monday ad Thursday )

We invite you to follow the route that will take you where the scent of ancient logs, inside a church or a cottage, will help you find the spirit and serenity of the past. „Kazimierz the Great received a Poland made of wood but gave it back built of stone” – as the saying goes. However, as it was the case in towns mostly, in most rural areas local carpenters continued to build of wood. This seemingly inferior material was cheaper, more available and enabled people to be self-reliant. As a result, wooden architecture still prevailed in the countryside where buildings were erected in perfect harmony with the landscape. The unmatched number of preserved objects in Małopolska led to the creation of The Wooden Architecture Route, which stretches for about 1500 km comprising over 200 churches, belfries, granaries, cottages and manor houses. The trip takes you to the most attractive places which are within a relatively short distance from Kraków.

Legend has it that the salt mines in Wieliczka were part of the dowry of the Hungarian princess, Kinga, when she wed  Bolesław the Shy over 700 years ago, making the Wieliczka Salt Mine one of the oldest in all of Europe. Over the centuries, devout and superstitious, miners have carved fabulous figures, monuments and altarpieces out of its salt walls. These amazing works of art, in addition to the mine’s historical importance, have earned the Wieliczka Salt Mine a place on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage list.
