WATCH: What is there to see in Poland?

One of the currently popular destinations for Maltese tourists is Poland.

During the programme Buckle Up, the production team goes into greater about the country’s main attractions, mainly in the city of Krakow and the regions around it.

This is one of Poland’s largest cities and ever popular with tourists. Krakow has a vast and historic heritage and culture.

In previous programmes, information was given about Rynek Glowny, a main square found in the centre of Krakow, known to be one of the largest medieval squares in Europe.

It is also fitting that Wadowice is visited, the place where the young Karol Woytila grew up and later became the late and much revered head of the Roman Catholic Church as Pope John Paul II.

Another renowned place found in this region if the former Nazi Germany concentration camp at Auschwitz, which is now a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The programme Buckle Up, also toured what is known as ‘Ghetto Heroes Square’. Spread around the square one finds 33 chairs, a commemorative symbol of the tragedy of Polish Jews in Krakow.

More was discovered about the salt mine ‘Wieliczka’, one of the main attractions in the region. This is one of the oldest mines in the world and is visited annually by more than a million people.

From ‘Wieliczka’, the journey continues to Poland’s aviation museum, an extensive showpiece of old aircraft and the engines they used. This is a highly interesting attraction for aircraft enthusiasts and is found in the Krakow region, in fact at Rakowice-Czyzyny Airport, one of Europe’s oldest military airports.

If you want to discover and learn more about interesting and popular destinations, you can once more view the programme Buckle Up on TVMi. Buckle Up is transmitted every Thursday at 4:15 pm.
