Jan Kiepura fell in love with Krynica and became a permanent part of the cultural landscape of the health resort. So the Aria tour will surely become a permanent part of the Krynica’s calendar. Kiepura was called the king of Polish tenors, and the tenor as we know is the highest male voice. This means that the bar must be suspended high. It will be high and it will be uphill… not once, of course! Jaworzyna, Runek, Łabowska Hala, Wierchomla, Pusta Wielka and at the end again Jaworzyna will make you sweat…a lot! Oh you will sing on this route! Your voice will improve (some will start to falsetto) and your feet will feel all that and you will taste the beautiful, wonderful Beskid Sądecki! Of course there will be ski lifts going in the opposite direction again. On your way you will be lucky to meet a real treasure of the Sadecki region – mineral waters! When you taste those precious minerals and they flow down your thirsty throats to strengthen your tired bodies, you will surely regain your strength, which will carry you straight to the Pump Room in Krynica! The force will be with you again!
