The Chapel of Saint Kinga, the most famous underground chamber of the salt mine in Wieliczka.

"The Saint Kinga’s Chapel is the most impressive and opulent of underground temples. The chamber, carved in a block of salt, has been a place of worship since 1896. The chapel ornamentation has been created over a period of more than a hundred years. From late 19th century until 1963, the sculpting was conducted by self-taught miners-sculptors, Józef and Tomasz Markowski and Antoni Wyrodek. Their work is continued by the new generation of miners, who create new sculpting projects." (From the official website).

"The Ark of the Saved": an installation in the former office of Oskar Schindler in his factory in Kraków-Zabłocie.

"The main object is a high (reaching the ceiling) glass quadrangle which from the outside appears to be jam-packed with with metal pans pressed in the Factory. However, one can get into it from two sides - into a small circular area - where on a metal wall enclosing the interior of the object, names of the Survivors rescued by Schindler are inscribed. The names are whispered from the speakers."
