Next GIRI Meeting

Therefore we plan a touristic tour for everyone who wants/can stay one day longer. In the morning we will have a trip to Nowa Huta, a ‘pearl of socialism’, to know about Poland’s new history and experience in a funny way how life was in Poland in those times. And in the afternoon we plan a trip to Wieliczka, a famous salt mine near to Cracow. We will have a guided tour through the mine and a dinner at Wieliczka’s restaurant. Please register here, if you wish to participate.
