    Sounds like a great trip Amey! I went to Krakow a few years ago and loved it! Although, that was before I got into growing orchids so I didn't know that they had such an amazing orchid house.

    Hi Amey, I'm happy you enjoyed your trip to my home country. You are right Krakow is a beautiful old city with one of the oldest University in Europe.
    Interesting for me is the fact, that in rich western countries like Holland or even Germany some botanical gardens are closed, because of money, and Poland, for sure not rich county is willing to keep such huge orchid collection. It's always a question of priority. What do you think?

    Tak Mietek ! LOL That was the only word I picked up. I think it is not only the question of priority, but also of culture and history. The orchid collection was a part of the history of the castle as it was started by the royal Potocski family, also the collection included some historical plants. Secondly it is a major tourist attraction for a town which has no other major tourism angle, thats why I think that funds are diverted for the running of such wonderful orchid houses.
