Poland for World Heritage : Exhibition
The Wieliczka and Bochnia Royal Salt Mines and the Historic Centre of Krakow are among the first twelve sites inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1978. Poland currently has fourteen sites inscribed on the List, and has worked for decades at protecting not only these places, but other sites of outstanding universal value. This exhibition is dedicated to the contribution of Poland to the protection of World Heritage sites through several initiatives in Africa, Asia, Europe and South America. Since the 1980s, with the support of various partners, Polish archaeologists, conservationists and scientists have conducted training and research workshops, participated in research and shared their expertise with their counterparts (institutions or NGOs) around the world.
