Our tour of the Old Town, included on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1978, begins with a brief visit to the old Jewish district of Kazimierz, inextricably linked with the history of the Jews of Kraków. Kazimierz was buzzing from the late 15th century to the tragic years of the Holocaust. After 1989 there was a wave of return migration to Kazimierz, and in 1993 Steven Spielberg shot his "Schindler's List" there, thereby making Krakow and Kazimierz an even more recognisable landmark in Europe.Then we will go to the Wawel Hill, over which tower the Royal Palace with its impressive arcaded Renaissance courtyard and the famous Gothic cathedral - the place of coronation and the necropolis of Polish kings. After visiting the Cathedral and the Royal Chambers with a great hall called "Poselska" (The Envoy Hall), whose ceiling with 30 carved human heads and an impressive collection of tapestries woven in Brussels will make you astonished, we will go to the oldest university college - the Collegium Maius, with a beautiful Gothic courtyard, to finish the tour in the heart of Kraków - the Main Market Square - the largest medieval square in Europe with St. Mary's Church - a soaring, Gothic church inside which you can admire the impressive altar by Wit Stwosz (Veit Stoss).

For many centuries Jews played their part in creating the history and culture of the city of Kroke, as Kraków is known in Yiddish. Before World War II they made up as much as 25% of the city's population. A tour around Kazimierz - the former Jewish district, preserved in excellent condition until today - will introduce you to the world of their rich culture, customs and history. It was there that the renowned philosopher Mojżesz Isserles (called Remuh) taught, Helena Rubinstein was born, who is considered to have been one of the richest women in the world, and the esteemed director, actor and screenwriter Roman Polanski spent his childhood. The old Jewish district, included on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1978, became an even more recognisable landmark in Europe following the release of the famous "Schindler's List". You will be introduced to the history of the extermination of the Jews of Kraków, which is the background for the events described in the Spielberg's film, as you will be wandering the streets of the former ghetto. That is the place where Jews were locked up during World War II, and they were sent to death camps from there. A display in the Schindler's Factory Museum will complement the information, which is the story of Kraków and the fate of the Polish and Jewish population during World War II, but also about the Germans - occupiers who arrived here on 6th September, 1939 and brutally stopped a centuries-old history of Polish-Jewish Kraków. The story of World War II mingles with everyday life there, and private life with the tragedy that affected the whole world.

In the 19th century Zakopane was a sleepy village inhabited by the Polish highlanders who - living for years in isolation - created their own unique culture. The special atmosphere and natural beauty of the place was discovered by Tytus Chałubiński. In a short time, artists and crème de la crème of the society declared Zakopane their favourite place in Poland, where they rested, created works of art and had affairs... Currently, the town is visited by thousands of tourists who, desiring to get to know its tradition, often complain about the "cheesiness" of 21st-century Zakopane. That is why we decided to show the face of "the winter capital of Poland" and its surrounding area which still reflects the charm of the past.

Flowing through the Pieniny, the Dunajec river forms a curving, rocky gorge of about 9 km. The gorge is surrounded by walls which are a couple of hundred metres long, and whose limestone cliffs blend beautifully with the forests that grow on them. The unique landscape of that area attracts crowds of tourists from all over the world each year, and rafting on the Dunajec is without a doubt the biggest tourist attraction in Poland. A Dunajec Rafting Trip starts at the marina in Sromowce-Kąty, is 18 km long and takes about 2-3 hours, depending on the water level. Rafting takes place on specially adapted, safe rafts made of five canoes. One raft takes 10-12 people at once and is run by two experienced rafters. The Polish-Slovak border runs along the most part of the Dunajec Rafting Trip route. Another attraction of the tour is a visit to Niedzica Castle, built in the 14th century by the Hungarians to protect an important trade route leading through the Dunajec Valley, and related to a remarkable story of the Incas who found refuge here.
