Summer is almost here, many people are planning trips to Poland, time for some travel tips. Every now and then I’ll be publishing short travel tips focussing on some great places to visit in Poland.
I’ll try to keep them brief. To kick the series off, here’s the first one – why not try something really cool this summer, like visiting Wieliczka.
1. What is it?
It’s a stunning old salt mine, the only one in the world which has been in use since the Middle Ages.
2. Where is it?
Just outside Kraków, a short drive from the city in the town of Wieliczka.
3. Why bother?
It’s a breathtaking journey through endless underground corridors and chambers, which have been carved in rock and salt by generations of salt miners. The most stunning bits are the massive salt chandeliers, altars and sculptures.
4. And you don’t want to miss…
… the music concerts 135 meters below the surface, the spa and the New Year’s Ball.
