Incentive travels ideas

The Małopolska Region with the City of Kraków is a unique treasure trove of ideas for incentive or integration travels. Its advantage is the perfect combination of rich natural environment, cultural and gastronomic offer, and a diverse range of hotel and conference facilities: from the luxurious facilities of Kraków, Zakopane and Krynica-Zdroj, through the Spar tan conditions of the Tatra Mountains huts, to the romantic inns, castle chambers, and reconstructed Galician towns.

  
  
 
In Kraków you can explore the treasures of the Old Town, the monuments of Jewish Kazimierz, or  the socialist-realistic atmosphere of Nowa Huta.  In  the neighborhood of  the capital city of the Małopolska, meeting par ticipants meetings can soak up the idyllic atmosphere of colorful Zalipie and Lanckorona – the town of angels, which hosts workshops of baking bread, candle making, and modeling clay angels. The nuns of the Benedictine Abbey in Tyniec will ensure a culinary adventure by preparing meals based on healthy products made according  to old  recipes. The picturesque  landscapes of  the Valleys near Kraków, of  the Ojcowski National Park and Niepołomice Forest encourage to spend time close to nature. Fans  of  active  leisure  can  do  the  rock  climbing,  cross  the  forest  on  a  bike,  or  discover  the  secrets  of  the caves. The incentive events offer is very diverse: from the great outdoor staging of knights held in the origina sets of medieval castles – including Wiśnicz, Niedzica, and Pieskowa Skała, through the exploratory urban integration games,  in which par ticipants  follow  the path of  the  kings,  ar tists,  and  scientists,  to prestigious par ties in the stylish interiors of museums.

Against the background of exceptional natural environment, the unique monuments of culture and tradition of Małopolska Region are presented perfectly. UNESCO treasures are at your fnger tips – with the 700-year-old Wieliczka  Salt Mine,  the Old  Town  of  Kraków,  the  paths  of  Kalwaria  Zebrzydowska,  and  the  gems of wooden religious architecture  in  the southern Małopolska. Also,  the heritage of national minorities:  the Polish Jews, the Gypsies, the mountaineers, the Lemkos, and the Nowy Sącz Lachs, whose infuence can be seen  in  the architecture, music,  literature, and cuisine,  is carefully cultivated. Traces of  the past are revealed by cultural  routes  (over 50). The best  known ones  include:  the Trail of Wooden Architecture,  the Trail of the Eagles’ Nests,  the Renaissance Route,  the Traditional Craft Route, and  the Lemko Churches Route. Par ticularly  notewor thy  are  the  Pope  paths,  including mountain  and  kayaking  trails, where  the  priest Karol Wojtyła  ,  later Pope John Paul  II, was walking. The enthusiasts of peaceful cultural experience can visit  the museum  collections  of  the Małopolska Region:  from  the National Museum  and  the Royal Wawel Castle, through the Museum of Aviation, the Museum of Urban Engineering, The Museum of Pharmacy, and the Sądecki Ethnographic Park,  to  the souvenirs of  the Polish mountains  in  the Tatra Museum  in Zakopane. On a map of active leisure Kraków holds a distinguished place. A network of hiking trails and spor ts grounds, such as a kayaking track on the Vistula River, is developing very well, and a stone pit of Zakrzówek hosts divers from all over Poland. In the province, the season of active leisure and good fun lasts the whole year. There are many horse stables – with centers  in Gładyszów, Swoszowice, and Raciechowice, golf courses (including club and hotel infrastructure) in Paczółtowice or Ochmanow, sailing areas on the Czorsztyn and Rożnowskie Lakes, climbing rocks of the valleys near Kraków, and swift rivers for kayaking fun (for example Dunajec). The south of the Małopolska  is dominated by winter spor ts, mainly in vivid, rich in folklore Zakopane, the health resort Krynica, and Jaworzyna, and in other resor ts where you can organize ski or snowboard competitions or a ski-tour walk. The geothermal pools and a wide range of spa treatments provide space for relaxation in 9 health resorts of the Małopolska Region. Cold nights become more attractive thanks to the traditional dog or horse sledding, held by the light of the stars, with torches, a campfre, and a Gorals’ band that will enable carousing till dawn. The par ticipants of the arranged visits to the Małopolska and its capital can beneft from the  year-round cultural offer. Many  international  festivals  are organized  in  the  region,  such  as:  the Sacrum Profanum, the Misteria Paschalia or the festival of Jewish Culture.
