Sri Sri Radha Rasabihari Ji Temple, Mumbai

ISKCON Temple, Pune

10 top UNESCO attractions in Poland by ITS DMC Poland

It is the most prestigious distinction when a tourist destination is enlisted at UNESCO World Heritage List that enlists the most precious areas and monuments in the world. Poland is lucky to have 16 such areas in the country. One of them is the natural area of Białowieża National Park and the rest is connected to the cultural heritage. The country can still boast a few more places on a waiting list to receive this international distinction. Below we will present top ten UNESCO attractions by ITS DMC Poland, a local travel agency.

Top UNESCO attractions in Poland by ITS DMC Poland

  1. Historic Centre of Cracow
  2. Historic Centre of Warsaw
  3. Medieval Town of Toruń
  4. Old City of Zamość
  5. Wieliczka and Bochnia Salt Mines
  6. Tarnowskie Góry Lead-Silver-Zinc Mine and its Underground Water Management System
  7. Peace Churches in Jawor and Swidnica
  8. Malbork Castle
  9. Auschwitz-Birkenau former Nazi German Death Camp
  10. Białowieża Forest

UNESCO towns

UNESCO singled out 4 of Polish towns. Torun was enlisted because of its Medieval Old Town that undamaged can be seen to this day, with streets layout, town walls, castle ruins and numerous houses. Zamosc town was constructed from the beginning as an ideal Renaissance city and it retained its substance undamaged to this day. It is one of the most interesting towns at the eastern Polish border. Cracow on the other hand as a previous capital city and the seat of Polish kings provides multitude of various monuments both in the Old Town and also in Kazimierz former Jewish district. Warsaw means completely different category. It is a Phoenix city that had to be meticulously rebuilt from the ashes of WWII. UNESCO appreciated the scale of the rebuilding that took place here. All of the 4 towns are true tourist hits in ITS DMC Poland’s portfolio because of multitude and variety of attractions that they offer.

Underground attractions

Poland and especially its southern part offers numerous possibilities to observe underground mines. Four of them have been enlisted at UNESCO World Heritage List. Two of them achieved special ITS DMC Poland’s recommendation. Wieliczka Salt Mine is known internationally for its underground salt lakes, salt sculptures and St. Kinga’s Chapel also made of salt. It is a place well worth 2 or 3 h stay. Wieliczka Mine was actually enlisted at the first UNESCO World Heritage List ever. ITS DMC Poland suggests visiting also the original Brine Graduation Tower while visiting Wieliczka district. Another, mine worth a visit is Tarnowskie Gory Lead-Silver-Zinc Mine. Tourists will find here top modern exhibition with open air museum of mining machines and the Black Trout Drift, where tourists can enjoy the underground boat cruise.

Original architecture

In this category we definitely must mention Malbork Castle which in terms of the area is the biggest brick castle in the world. This intimidating Gothic building was erected by the crusaders Teutonic Knights Order. Malbork was actually the capital town of the crusaders country that existed at currently Polish lands in the Medieval times. Nowadays, the castle is opened for tourists. ITS DMC Poland states that you have to reserve at least half a day to fully appreciate it. Another unique sight is Auschwitz-Birkenau former Nazi German Death Camp Museum and memorial. The museum shows the darkest page in the human history and is a place of death of more than 1.5 million children, woman and man, mainly Jews from all over Europe killed during WWII. Standard sightseeing of both camp complexes takes at least 3.5-4 h and is deeply saddening experience. Finally, the last architectural marvels we want to mention are huge wooden structures of the Protestant Peace Churches located close to Wroclaw in Swidnica and Jawor. Both few storeys’ temples fascinate with craftsmanship, artistry and sizes.

Natural sanctuary

Bialowieza National Park is a part of cross border UNESCO natural sight. It is the last original primeval forest in Europe with great biodiversity and a population of European Bison. The central tourist point here is Bialowieza village with modern and interesting Natural History Museum of the National Park. It is also a starting point of walking trips to the park. ITS DMC Poland also recommends a visit in European Bison sanctuary where visitors can admire these magnificent animals.

Summing up, Poland has many world class monuments and tourist attractions that are still undiscovered by the masses of international tourists. They are truly worth the effort to get to this central European country. Let yourself be surprised and amazed by the modern Poland and its top-notch attractions. If any of them caught your interest, feel free to contact ITS DMC Poland and check their group offer. Professional ITS-Poland specialists will be happy to prepare a sightseeing program tailored to your needs.

4 Memorable Things to Do in Labuan Bajo

Back in the day, Labuan Bajo was a simple fishing village. However, with the building of an airport and the efforts by the authorities to transform the town from a fishing center to a tourist destination; Labuan Bajo is now just as fascinating as other islands.

Admittedly, many use the town as a gateway to Komodo island. However, next time you find yourself in Labuan Bajo, consider taking a few days to explore the town. You might be shocked at how much you can do in that small town, including the following.

1. Visit Manta Point and Swim with Mantas

Manta Point is an incredibly popular diving spot near Labuan Bajo. At Manta Point, you will get a chance to view the Manta Ray—one of the seas most majestic creatures.

Manta Rays which evolved from stingrays are a species of fish with horn-shaped fins, huge forward facing mouths and an incredible width ranging from 5.5m (18ft) to 7m (23ft). Due to the horn-shaped cephalic fins, some have given Mantas the name devilfish with the belief that they have an evil look.

However, the name devilfish does not change the fact that Mantas are amazing creatures. For one, because of their size, only large sharks, killer whales and humans count as their predators. Second, a Manta Ray can weigh as much as 3000 pounds. Third, it has a striking appearance, thanks to the white and black coloration.

Moreover, Mantas can leap up to 2m above water and scientists still have no idea why they do this. Finally, Mantas have a lifespan of between 50 to 100 years. At Manta Point, almost all year round, you can observe the Mantas as they swim and experience this fascinating creature for yourself.

2. Enjoy The View from Amelia Sea View

The Amelia Sea View in Labuan Bajo is a spot that allows you to enjoy stunning sunrises, equally beautiful sunsets and breathtaking sea views. The local government went to great measures to develop the spot for both locals and tourists, and as such, it is easy to reach.

However, for people who do not hike often, it might take a while to reach the summit. To give yourself the best chance to enjoy the hike, bring enough water to ensure you stay hydrated, wear comfortable shoes and bring a trekking hat if you are hiking in the afternoon.

Note that the area comprises of rolling hills which means in addition to the view, tourists also get to enjoy nature. For photographing enthusiasts, nature plus the view provides enough material for stunning photos.

3. Stay at Exquisite Hotels and Resorts

As noted above, the local Labuan Bajo government has done a lot to promote Labuan Bajo as a tourist destination. One of the ways they have done is to encourage the building of luxury hotels that give tourists incredible experiences.

When in Labuan Bajo, you are bound to find three distinct types of hotels, budget hotels which offer accommodation without any additional perks, mid-range hotels which offer accommodation and a few perks such as breakfast and finally luxury hotels such as Ayana labuan bajo hotel which offer uncountable perks including spas, a gym, breakfast and supper.

4. Take a Tour Around the Town

Taking a tour around Labuan Bajo is quite the adventure. To start with, it will allow you to visit Rangko Cave and Batu Cermin Cave. The Batu Cermin is a 19-hectares wide cave with a rock formation that reflects light like a mirror. Locals call it the ‘Mirror Rock’ and it a fascinating phenomenon to observe.
