    Warsaw

    Today we travel into the centre of Warsaw for free time. Although the beginnings of Warsaw go as far back as the 12th and 13th century, the city was forced to completely rebuild after its near-total destruction during World War II. The symbol of the capital’s rebirth was an unprecedented post-war re-creation of the Old Town, which in 1980 was put on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. To introduce you to the sights why not join our optional guided sightseeing tour. You will see the “Royal Route” with its aristocratic residences, statues and historic churches before visiting the Old Town, the Castle Square the Barbican and such historical sites as the Ghetto Memorial, the Chopin Monument and the Belvedere Palace. Our local guide will provide an informative commentary, and reveal many of the stories behind the buildings and personalities that have shaped the often-tragic history of this fascinating city. The remainder of the day is at leisure in this remarkable city. Explore the streets of the Old Town with atmospheric alleys, squares and cosy cafes.

    • Included meals: Breakfast, Dinner
    Auschwitz

    Auschwitz

    Spend a day at leisure in Zakopane or why not join our poignant optional excursion to the Auschwitz-Birkenau complex. A site of great importance to the Holocaust story, Auschwitz will forever be seen as the centre of a vast plan to exterminate a whole race of people. Rudolph Hess was given the assignment of expanding the camp to accommodate 30,000 prisoners. In this process he built an annex that would hold 100,000 prisoners of war. As the prisoners arrived, approximately 25 percent were then and there determined to be “fit for work” and allowed to live a bit longer. The great majority of Jews, however, who were deported to Auschwitz - men, women and children - were immediately sent to their deaths in the gas chambers of Auschwitz II - Birkenau. When the SS realized that the end of the war was near, they attempted to remove all evidence of the atrocities committed there. They dismantled the gas chambers, crematoriums and other buildings. They burned documents and evacuated all the prisoners who could walk to the interior of Germany. The number of victims was approximately one million, only 667 prisoners escaped; 270 were recaptured and executed. Those who were not evacuated were liberated by the Red Army on January 27, 1945. Auschwitz is the largest of the Nazi concentration camps, and is preserved in order so that mankind never forgets the atrocities committed here. This remains a hugely emotional experience.

    • Included meals: Breakfast, Dinner
    Krakow

    Krakow

    Today our included excursion takes us to Krakow. As the ancient capital of Poland, Krakow was the royal residence for centuries. It was also the only major city in the country to escape major damage during World War II. Krakow’s assembly of monuments are listed by UNESCO as one of the world's twelve most significant historic sites. Why not join our optional guided tour to introduce you to the sights of the Old Town, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Market Square is one of the largest medieval squares in Europe and deserving of its place among the most beautiful in the world. The square is the focal point of the city and is divided by the imposing Gothic style Cloth Hall. After the sightseeing tour there will be time at leisure to explore all at your own pace. Perhaps walk up Wawel Hill to the Royal Cathedral, one of Poland’s greatest buildings, and the burial place of over 40 Polish Kings.
