Mobility - Poland (reportage, outcomes)
Poland was the last country
we visited in the project Leonardo Agropuzzle. We arrived in Kedzier-Koźlle,
then we travelled around visiting various farms, which we were particularly
interested in. We couldn?t miss the protected areas of Natura 2000, UNESCO
Heritage Sites and Holocaust Memorial in Auschwitz.
The trip took place from 26
to 31 March 2012
Day: All delegations met in the city townhall where the welcoming ceremony took
place. Then we went to see the city centre, the school and we were introduced to
the schedule of our visit to Poland. Afterwards, we went on a trip to ?Gora sw.
Anny?, which is one of the protected
areas of Natura 2000. We learned about the management of the protected area as
well as about the rules of nature conservation.
2nd Day: The Kania
farm produces substrate for cultivation of button mushrooms. Besides, the farm
has its own research centre. Then we visited the Bulik farm, which concentrates
on pig breeding. In the holiday resort Krzywniak, we had a possibility to learn
how to exploit the EU Tourism Grants.
Day: We moved to the city of Krakow, which is one of the UNESCO Heritage Sites.
After checking in, we went on a sightseeing tour around the historical city
centre with a local tourist guide. Therefore, we could admire Wawel Castle,
several churches, old market, etc.
4th Day: The visit
to salt mine Wieliczka, which is listed among the UNESCO Heritage Sites, was
really impressive. The mine is 327 metres deep and the overall length of
tunnels is 300 kilometres. The salt has been mined there since 700. In the
national park Ojcowski, we were shown how to maintain balance between nature
conservation and tourism. In the evening, the lecture on Sustainable Development
and Natura 2000 in Poland took place.
Day: The last day of our stay was dedicated to the visit
to the former concentration camp Auschwitz. This working and extermination camp
was built during the Second World War by Nazi Germany. More than one million
people, especially Jews, were killed there. Looking at the photos, a question
comes to our mind: Has the mankind
learned its lesson or are we going to forget again?
