Festival in Poland
We Are Singing Cracow
Cracow is one of the best festival cities in Central Europe. From theater, art, literature, music, dance and food, it provides its citizens and visitors with unique cultural experiences and spectacular entertainment. Though not the capital, Cracow is the cultural and intellectual center of the country — and deservedly Poland's most popular destination.
Choirs come from all over the world to take part in this festival, now in its third year. Performances are organized in the most beautiful churches of Cracow and Grand Concert at Hall of Bochnia Salt Mine.
Bochnia Salt Mine
The beginnings of the Bochnia mine as an excavating plant date back to 1248. Being a royal facility, the mine generated a huge income.The mine was first accorded legislative protection in 1981, and it has subsequently been recognised as a national monument. In 2013 it became part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site when the designation of the mine at Wieliczka was extended. The mines has 4.5 km. of galleries at 16 levels between 330 m. and 468 m. below the surface. The August Passage, almost 3 km. long, driven between 1723 and 1743 under the management of Jan Gottfried Borlach, provides access for visitors, and links a succession of chambers created by the extraction of salt. Some large wooden machines have been preserved, together with railways that were used for underground transport. The largest chamber, 225 m. long and 14.4 m.
