A new tourism record was set again in Małopolska – in 2016 the region was visited by 14.9 million tourists, over a million more compared to 2015. Asked about the most attractive places, tourists picked Krakow, Zakopane and the "Wieliczka” Salt Mine.
The New Year’s Concert at the “Wieliczka” Salt Mine enjoys such great popularity that this year we had to organise two of them. On the 7th and 8th of January, the Warsaw Chamber was filled with the music performed by talented soloists and the outstanding Krakow Opera Orchestra. The artists took their audience on an unforgettable musical journey to the 19th century Vienna.
The Małopolska region was visited by the members of the Vatican Commission. They visited the places that will host the participants of the World Youth Days in the upcoming weeks. The delegates also visited the historic “Wieliczka” Salt Mine. The Vatican delegates were accompanied by His Eminence Cardinal Stanisław Dziwisz and Bishop Damian Muskus.
Powerful, dangerous and fierce –we know these parts of their personalities from the boxing rings. Éric Molina and Eric Fields, two title-winning American boxers, command respect. Don’t ever mess with them... Just take them to the “Wieliczka” Salt Mine instead. On Easter Monday, the athletes visited the Tourist Route.
