About the event

This is a winter adventure packed trip to the heart of Polish culture and tradition. We will be visiting two UNESCO heritage sites, a castle, and the most amazing city in Poland: Krakow.

The itinerary was created to challenge you and at the same time allow you some time for relaxing and socialising. After the tough day of skiing/taking skiing classes we will unwind in the thermal pools. We will also have a chance to let our hair down and enjoy famously cheap polish drinks and party.

We will be visiting the former capital of Poland -Krakow. It is one of the oldest cities and the most beautiful one. The Old Town, together with the Wawel Hill and the Kazimierz district, are on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The Medieval urban layout of the Old Town has not changed for centuries. We will enjoy a guided tour of the old town as well as an evening expedition to the old Jewish quarter where we will soak its magical atmosphere over a traditional glass of beer.

We will also see The “Wieliczka” Salt Mine, which is one of the most valuable monuments of material and spiritual culture in Poland. Each year it is visited by more than one million tourists from all over the world. It is also a world class monument, featuring among twelve objects on the UNESCO’s World Cultural and Natural Heritage List.

We will be skiing in Bialka Tatrzanska, a ski resort that boasts a thermal complex comprising net floor area of 8,580.33 m². Terma Białka in Białka Tatrzańska is an extraordinary place – it combines fun of an aqua park, comfort of a SPA and the therapeutic effects of thermal baths. It offers entertainment and relaxation with an interior design which combines highland style with modern architecture. Their pro-ecological mind set demonstrates Terma’s concern for the natural environment and well-being of future generations.

Geothermal water is extracted from a depth of 2500 m with a temperature of 72°C.

MORE INFO ABOUT THE SIGHTS:

KRAKOW

One of Poland’s oldest cities, it was already extant at the nation’s birth in 966. It was the capital from 1038 until 1596, when that honour was wrested away by the upstart Warsaw (http://www.mydestination.com/warsaw) (although Krakow’s Royal Castle (http://www.mydestination.com/krakow/things-to-do/117155/krakow-wawel-castle) remained the burial place of kings, military heroes, poets and even presidents). Nowadays, erudite, softly-spoken Cracovian intellectuals rather look down their elegant noses at the fast-paced, noisy, money-fixated Varsovians.

Every visitor should see Europe’s largest medieval market square with its Cloth Hall, St Mary's Church with its Gothic pentaptych altarpiece carved from limewood, Wawel Hill and its royal castle and the Wawel cathedral with its outstanding Renaissance chapel.

The medieval buildings of the Collegium Maius university with its unique collection of astronomical instruments, the Barbican, and St Florian's Gate is another gem worth visiting.

The Jewish quarter of Kazimierz features a wealth of Jewish heritage sites, including a 16th century cemetery and seven synagogues of which one is now the Jewish museum. Each summer the Jewish Culture Festival is held there, attracting followers of the Jewish culture from the whole world.

WIELICZKA-SALT MINE

The “Wieliczka” Salt Mine is one of the most valuable monuments of material and spiritual culture in Poland. Each year it is visited by more than one million tourists from all over the world.

It is also a world class monument, featuring among twelve objects on the UNESCO’s World Cultural and Natural Heritage List.

Today, the “Wieliczka” Salt Mine combines many centuries of tradition and modernity, the history of several hundred years and an underground metropolis with extensive infrastructure.

The mine is a product of work of tens of generations of miners, a monument to the history of Poland and to the Polish nation – a brand, present in Polish consciousness for centuries.
