The Auschwitz camp, established by the Nazis in 1940 in the suburbs of the city of Auschwitz, has become a symbol of terror, genocide and the Holocaust.  Historians estimate that in less than five years of the camp's existence 1-1.5 million people were killed in Auschwitz, most of them - approximately 1-1.35 million - were Jews. In the former camp there are still ruins of the gas chambers, miles of barbed wire fence and the railway platform where the doomed people arrived, all of which greatly impress the visitors.  The tour of the Museum, included on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1978, comprises both parts of the former concentration camp - Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II-Birkenau - and a documentary film presenting the first moments after the camp was liberated.

As you descend the 380 steps into the depths of the salt mine you get the impression that you are entering a magical underground city full of mysterious grottos and subterranean lakes. As you walk along the 3.5-kilometre route you will be able to admire original appliances and mining equipment as well as chapels forged out of salt, including the largest and most beautiful of them all – the Chapel of St. Kinga, the patron saint of salt miners. This subterranean church is richly adorned with candelabras, sculptures and figures of saints carved in salt. You return to the surface via the lift in the Daniłowicz shaft, which is another attractive part of the mine, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lunch in Salt Mine.

How to get to Krasne - Map

The region of its activity consists of 4 voivodeships: malopolskie, opolskie, podkarpackie and slaskie. This region is characterised by beautiful landscape and wonderfull tourism, the national culture and variety of folklor. Its agriculture is differentiated either in area or in production. The area is rich in greenland, what predestines it to produce milk cattle and also high quality beef. MCB in Krasne fullfills all needs of such differentiated agriculture, offering genetic material of the highest quality in all breeds. The scale of inseminating services throughout a year is as follows: - insemination of cows and heifers - 250,000 - insemination of sows - 90,000 - insemination of bees - 9,000 - a low scale of insemination of goats and rabbits.


The region around the Bieszczady, in the far southeastern corner of Poland, is one of thick forests and open meadows. Scantily populated and unspoilt, it’s one of the most attractive areas of the country. As tourist facilities are modest, roads sparse and public transport limited, the Bieszczady region retains its relative isolation and makes for an off-the-beaten-track destination. It’s popular with nature-lovers and hikers.  Among many historical and cultural sites, the most popular  is Sanok Open Air Museum - one of the biggest skansens in Poland. It was established in 1958  and contains 200 buildings which have been relocated from different areas of Sanok Land (Bieszczady, Low Beskids, Pogórza, Doły Jasielsko Sanockie) . The museum shows 19th and early 20th century life in this area of Poland. The park is divided into distinct but similar-looking sections – each featuring an ethnic group living in the region prior to the post-WWII forced resettlements. (Boykos, Lemkos), Dolinians (Dale Dwellers) and Polish Uplanders (pl. Pogorzanie) homes and churches have been transported there from surrounding villages, restored to original condition and furnished with authentic objects of the period.  Bieszczadzka Forest Railway is another exciting attraction of the Bieszczady mountains. It was established at the end of the 19th century. In the past it was used for transporting timber, at present, it carries tourists. We organise for all participants the ride through the Bieszczady forests.


Under the patronage of the Polish Simmental Cattle Breeders Association, an annual exhibition of Simmental cattle is organised in Rudawka Rymanowska. On the one hand, the exhibition provides an opportunity for presenting the breeding and production accomplishments, as well as production efforts and effects of perfected utility features. On the other, it is a great occasion for exchange of thoughts, beliefs and experiences in the course of conducted meetings and discussions attended by farmers, breeders and representatives of breeding associations, agricultural services, as well as academics from institutes and universities related to agriculture. Discussions refer to current problems and the perspective of further development of animal production. The participation of breeders/ farmers, presentation of best and most beautiful animals and distributed distinctions and prizes mobilise the participants to obtain better and better results. Looking at the animals presented at the exhibition, one can be certain that breeding animals in good environmental and nutritional conditions ensures milk, meat and eggs of high quality.
