The Great “Lesser” Poland
How about visiting a great place renown for hospitality, offering plentiful comfortable accommodation? A place that enjoys sharing its culture, offering great experiences from active leisure to tours and visits to museums, from grand festivals to informal concerts, from fine restaurants to pubs where you meet over a pint or two? A place where you can descend 400ft into ancient salt mines, admire royal treasuries, do trainspotting, and even visit Europe’s only desert? Wouldn’t it be a great idea for your holiday or just a short break? Even if I told you I keep saying “great” because the place is known as “Lesser” Poland – Małopolska? More

Enjoy the treasures of autumn
Living in the “global village”, we might have become slightly disconnected from the traditional practices based on the natural rhythm of seasons. We might have forgotten that autumn, the season following harvest and preceding winter, was the time of plenty for our grandfathers and their grandfathers’ grandfathers as well. The time when larders and granaries were full, and you could follow the carpe diem maxim, and enjoy the pleasures of the well-laden table pushing away the thought about the first frosty breaths of winter.
Wawel: your royal treat, free of charge
There is no more place more quintessentially Polish than Wawel. In November, the month when Poland celebrates its Independence Day, the Royal Castle opens to visitors for free.
How about joining the 28th IHF World Men’s Handball Championships, an international festival of sport and fun that Kraków and Małopolska are getting ready for in January 2023?
