UNESCO has launched a web platform dedicated to World Heritage and sustainable tourism – “UNESCO World Heritage Journeys”.
The Wieliczka mine ended the last year with a record number of 1.7 million visitors. Will 2018 be better? The results for the first five months of the year show that this will indeed be the case. By the end of May, the historic underground was visited by 598,500 tourists, which is 46,600 more than in the corresponding period of 2017.
