Poland is a country with a 1000 year history, which has seen its fair share of wars, yet despite the vast destruction during WWII, a lot of cultural wealth and rich traditions remain. The capital, Warsaw, went through huge reconstruction and is now bustling full of cafés, restaurants, galleries and the walled UNESCO Old Town. Stooge through antique shops and luxurious boutiques, enjoy a reflective coffee amongst the bookshelves in a café-bookshop. Somewhat miraculously, Krakow emerged from WWII totally unscathed, its eclectic mix of cobbled streets, castles, church spires, and the largest medieval square in Europe stand perfectly preserved. The tree-lined promenade encircles the centre of the city, leading from the Florian gate to Wawel Castle. There is a whimsical charm existing across the city for your discovery. Littered with monuments, museums and holocaust memorials, Poland’s painfully blighted past cannot – and should not – be ignored. But it’s not history alone that shapes this revered country.
Whether you’re tramping from cities to towns, or Baltic coastal villages and ethereal forests, seek out a traditional Polish way of life. Frequent the many milk bars (bar mleczny) and eat wood grilled sausage with a side serving of cabbage. Stand before the windows of elaborate cake displays and salivate over poppy cakes, cream cakes and fruit filled strudels, and experience orchestras, operas and choirs in the grandest of concert halls. If you tire of town life, venture away from the hustle and into Poland’s rich countryside which is teeming with woodland, rivers and forests, Carpathian hillside and a network of lakes and waterways perfect for kayaking and canoeing.
Enjoy a more intimate look at this vibrant city on a walking tour. Explore the Old Town, admire the Royal Castle and pay a visit to the former Jewish ghetto whilst hearing of the history and the imprint left by the communist era and WWII.
Discover Warsaw’s Jewish heritage from the seat of a Fiat 125p. A local guide will lead you on your adventure abroad your vintage vehicle to see the Jewish Cemetery, Nožyk Synagogue and the Ghetto Wall.
Ride at leisurely pace following a guide to see attractions such as Warsaw Old Town, the Palace of Culture and Science and the Vistula River.
This UNESCO World Heritage-site is one of the most fascinating Polish monuments. The underground trails lead through numerous drifts, galleries and chambers, where traces of mining activity have been preserved.
Learn about Auschwitz, one of the most well-known concentration camps in the world; approximately 1.5 million people were killed here during WWII. Every year, millions of visitors walk through the gate bearing a fallacious inscription: Arbeit macht frei - Work sets one free.
Escape the bustle of the city and head to the top of Mt Gubalówka on the funicular railway for incredible views. Discover Zakopane’s traditional mountain architecture, shops and the Tatra Museum.
A great way to discover the culinary delights around Rynek Główny is on a walking tour with a guide. Check out eateries, cafés and local stalls to sample Polish favorites, including ‘pierogi’ (stuffed dumplings), ‘obwarzanek’ (an Eastern European spin on the bagel), sour rye soup, pickled cucumber and cabbage and homemade liquor.
