Małopolska – what is worth seeing?
It is worth starting your tour of Małopolska from the city of kings and the historic capital of Poland. Krakow is one of the most popular destinations on the tourist map of Poland and Europe. Every year, tourists from all over the world come here to feel the unique atmosphere of the Old Town with the stunning St. Mary’s Basilica and the monumental Royal Castle. You must also visit Kazimierz district, take a walk along the Father Bernatek Footbridge to Podgórze and its post-industrial part – Zabłocie.  When mentioning interesting places on the map of Małopolska, special attention should be paid to the historic salt mine in Wieliczka, entered on the UNESCO list, and the Salt Mine Museum. One of the historically most important places in the Lesser Poland Voivodeship is the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum, which everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime. The memorial site and museum were established at the two former Nazi death camps in Oświęcim (KL Auschwitz) and the neighboring Brzezinka (KL Birkenau). When planning a longer stay in Lesser Poland, it is necessary to take into account the time for a trip to Zakopane – the winter capital of Poland with the majestic ranges of the Tatra Mountains surrounding it. Zakopane is also worth visiting in the summer to see the characteristic highlander architecture and try regional dishes on the famous Krupówki.
