Erasmus in Zakopane

Our guests visited Zakopane, a beautiful town which lies in the south of Poland at the foot of the Tatra Mountains. It is the centre of Goral culture and is known as "the winter capital of Poland". It is popular destination for mountaineering,skiing and tourism.

We visited The Jaszczurowka Chapel which was designed by Stanislaw Witkiewicz. It was built in 1904 and is a typical example of Zakopane style:high stone foundation,arcades in the front,a tiny tower with a bell on the roof,the wooden altar,stained-glass windows.

We were walking through the town's most popular street:Krupowki. It is lined with stores,restaurants and performes.Here we bought unique souvenirs.


Hiking is very popular in Zakopane. The walk through Strazyska Valley was very exciting. The views were amazing.


In the evening we experienced goral culture, which is rich in its unique styles of food,speech,architecture,music and costumes.

UNESCO World Heritage Site

One of the oldest cities in Poland and one of the leading centres of Polish academic, cultural and artistic life.

We visited:
        St. Mary's Basilica
Brick gothic church re-built in the 14 century. It is famous for its wooden altarpiece carved by Wit Stwosz. On every hour, a trumpet signal-called the Hejnal Mariacki- is played from the top of the taller of St.Mary's two towers.

Wawel Castle

The Wawel Castle is a castle residency built at the behest of king Casimir III the Great, who reigned from 1333 to 1370. It consists of a number of structures situated around the central courtyard.

The Wawel Castle and the Wawel Hill are the most historically and culturally important sites in Poland. For centuries it was the residence of the kings of Poland.

   Krakow Cloth Hall

It is one of the city's most recognizable icons. It is the central feature of the main market square in the Krakow Old Town. It is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1978.

It was once a major centre of international trade. During its golden age in the 15th century, the hall was the source of a variety of exotic imports from the east- species, silk, leather and wax.

Rynek Underground
It is tourist route "Following the traces of European identity of Krakow". The establishment of this interactive exhibition was made possible thanks to the archeological study from 2005 to 2010 on the eastern side of the Main Market square.

The Rynek Underground exhibition presents not only Krakow's rich history but also connections between the city and mediaeval Europe's chief centres of trade and culture.

We saw there:the real historical objects on display, 14th century coins, decorations, pottery, the stone and brick walls of the cellars, mediaeval tools, clay figures, dice and toiletry articles used over 600 years ago and many many more...

Oscar Schindler's Enamel Factory

It is located in the post-industrial Zablocie district of Krakow, at the administrative building of the former factory of enamelled vessels known as Oscar Schindler's Deutche Emailwarenfabrik.

This museum presents the history of Krakow and its residents under NAZI GERMAN OCCUPATION (1939-1945)

It is a historical district of Krakow. From the 14th century to the early 19th century, Kazimierz was an independent city, a royal city of the Crown of the Polish Kingdom, located south of Krakow Old Town and separated by a branch of the Vistula river.

For many centuries, Kazimierz was a place of coexistance of Christian and Jewish cultures. Its north-eastern part of the district was historic Jewish, whose Jewish inhabitants were forcibly relocated in 1941 by the German occupying forces into the Krakow ghetto just across the river in Podgorze.

Today Kazimierz is one of the major tourist attractions of Krakow and an important center of cultural life of the city.
