Historic Walking Areas · Historic Sites · History Museums
Taking its name from the larger historical region, Lesser Poland Province, or voivodeship, is often seen as the hub of all things Polish. The provincial capital Krakow offers up nearly a millennium's worth of royal and political history. Beyond Krakow, be sure to include historical cities Zakopane, Krynica, Koscielisko, and Bukowina Tatrzanska in your holiday itinerary. The mostly hilly province is full of national parks, high mountain ranges, underground waters and spas, medieval castles, and cultural museums. Dozens of World Heritage Sites are spread throughout the province, from medieval wooden churches and the famous Wieliczka Salt Mine to Wawel castle in Krakow and the monastery of Kalwaria Zebrzydowska.
