You learn not only about the salt mining industry but about the events that affected the art spreading underground. The most impressive example of mine art is The Chapel of St. Kinga. Arched halls and salt lakes complete the breathtaking atmosphere of the complex. The mine is one of the oldest world\'s mine. Miners built up tunnels and shafts since 13th century, some of them extend to 300 km. Our adventure is 3,5 km long and when we get lucky, famous sophranos and compositions could make our journey more pleasant as various classical concerts often take place in the mine.

Krakow is, next to Auschwitz, the most visited place in Poland. Walk along the river under the royal Wawel castle and pass a den where the notorious dragon lived. The guide introduces the legends connected to the town\'s history. Finally, end up in the castle grounds where apart from the magnificent castle, you\'ll pay a visit to the Royal Basilica where the most prominent Polish figures are buried, including the tragically deceased president Lech Kaczy?ski. The entrance draws your attention with hanging bundles of bones which are rumored to have belonged to previously mentioned dragon. Through the crooked streets scattered with shops, cafés and restaurants and get to the main square Rynek G?ówny with its famous Cloth Hall and the Church of the Virgin Mary.
