The Lesser Poland Voivodeship is located in the south of the country and belongs to the most attractive tourist areas in Poland. Its capital, Krakow attracts millions of tourists from all over the world every year, and the Tatra Mountains in the south are the capital of winter recreation. There is no shortage of mountain areas for active tourism, picturesque cities, villages and spas.
Royal Krakow is a city with a diverse tourist offer, from magnificent monuments from the time when it was the capital of the country to socialist realist Nowa Huta. Tourists are also attracted by the former Jewish quarter, Kazimierz, which is now a restaurant and club area as well as an artistic mecca of bohemia.
The area around Krakow also has a lot to offer. Here are the historic salt mines in Wieliczka and Bochnia, a beautiful limestone region of Jura with numerous castles called the Eagles' Nests and the former German extermination camp in Oświęcim-Brzezinka, which induces reflection and reflection.
The south of the region is a mountain area of a very diverse nature. The highest, rocky and the most spectacular are the Tatras with the highest Polish peak, Rysy (2499 m above sea level), above the Dunajec gorge, through which rafting rafts rise Pieniny, and the remaining part is occupied by the obese, forested Beskids.
Active tourism, hiking, biking and horse riding flourish in the mountains. In winter, numerous cross-country ski runs are available, and there are several dozen larger and smaller ski stations in the region. The richness of Małopolska is also the mineral waters used in health resorts such as Krynica Zdrój, Piwniczna, Muszyna-Zdrój and Szczawnica.
