Krakow perfects the blend of old and new, welcoming tourists into its thriving heart and touching their very soul.
Krakow is, in essence, Poland. The place to be.
Billed as the cross-roads of Europe, Warsaw has found itself fought over and through for centuries. Most recently World War II left Warsaw as largely rubble, meaning even the ‘Old Town’ is only 50 years old, reconstructed with careful thought and attention to detail. However, Warsaw is the Capital of modern Poland, and is thriving and building a flourishing contemporary vibe that shakes off its former Socialist roots and instead is demarking itself as a vibrant, democratic heart of modern-day Poland and wider Europe.
Gdańsk has rebuilt itself from the heart following near complete destruction in WWII. The result is that this Baltic boom town reflects a truly modern Poland whilst restoring and incorporating the best of the past. This welcoming and encompassing outlook is reflected in every highlight of this thriving port town. Energetic and vibrant, reflecting its unique maritime culture.
Hailed the European Capital of Culture in 2006, Wroclaw is the largest city in Western Poland, nestled on the River Oder in the Silesian lowlands. Its turbulent history sets it apart and over the years Wroclaw has been known by a huge variety of names. The result is a city that is culturally diverse and architecturally rich, even if this is largely due to post World War II restoration.
Poznań is a beautiful renaissance old town, rich in colour and atmosphere, on the Warta River. The array of cosy cafes situated alongside trendy bar offer prime spots to sit and relax watching the world go by. Poznań is ideal as a base for exploring the surrounding areas rich in natural beauty and leisure activities.
