- Guided tour of Old Town: When you tour a historic city centre you’re normally out for genuine, untouched architecture and monuments. But after Warsaw’s experiences in the 20th century, the magic of this quarter is in the detailed and faithful reconstruction carried out up to 1962. After almost nine tenths of the city was wiped out, the Old Town’s rebirth was an incredible feat that has earned it Old Town UNESCO World Heritage Status.As you pick your way along alleys and passageways, past guildhalls, churches and burgher houses you’d never imagine that this was all just a pile of debris 70 years ago.A couple of sights that we haven’t included on the list below are Canon Square, a triangular plaza enclosed by tenements that once houses canons of the Warsaw Chapter, and St John’s Arch cathedral, holding the tomb of Stanisław II Augustus, the last King of Poland.
- Next explore Old Town Market Place: Up to the creation of Stanislaw II Augustus’ New Town at the end of the 18th century, this square was the epicenter of commercial life in Warsaw. It is the most historic part of the Old Town and is enveloped by tall Renaissance and Baroque merchants’ houses in a spectrum of colours. All of these buildings are post-war replicas of what came before, as the square was first bombed by the Luftwaffe and then blown up by the Germans at the end of the Warsaw Uprising in 1944. Immediately after the war the square was rebuilt as it had been, including the bizarre but charming vertical extensions that cap some of the houses. The mermaid figure on the fountain in the centre holds special meaning for Warsaw, while in summer you can park up at a restaurant table and watch the city going about its day.
- Second half to be spent in Polin Museum of the History of Polish Jews: Seven years in the making, this museum fully opened in 2014 and documents the millennium-long history of the Jews in Poland. POLIN is at the northern part of the former Warsaw ghetto in Muranów, and was designed by Finnish architect Rainer Mahlamäki.In eight galleries, the core exhibition uses a mixture of genuine artefacts, reconstructions and interactive displays to explain how Poland became home for Europe’s largest Jewish community
- Back to hotel and overnight stay.
- Breakfast at the hotel.
- Pickup from the hotel for the tour.
- Visit Royal Castle: At the southern entrance to the Old Town you’ll be met by the 90-metre facade of the Mannerist and Baroque castle, the seat of the Polish monarchs for hundreds of years. The castle has come through an eventful 700 years involving two demolitions, one by the Swedes in the mid-17th century and another by the Germans in the Second World War.Since the last reconstruction in the 1980s the castle has been a museum, where you can view the apartments of the 16th-century King Sigismund II Augustus, and visit the House of Parliament, the fountain-head of Polish democracy and where amendments made to the Polish-Lithuanian constitution ushered in unprecedented religious tolerance. There’s also a collection of paintings from the 16th to the 18th century by masters like Rembrandt, van Dyck, Joos van Cleve and Gainsborough.
- Next, Photostop at Castle square: When Poland’s capital moved from Krakow to Warsaw in 1596 the square beside the castle became the cornerstone of the largest Empire in Renaissance Europe. The man who brought about this switch was Sigismund III Vasa, who is commemorated by a bronze statue atop an 8.5-metre column.This was first raised in 1644, but was toppled by the Germans in 1944 and its original red marble was replaced with granite. There are still fragments of the marble column by the castle walls.
- Proceed to visit Warsaw Uprising Museum: This museum of the Warsaw Uprising of August to October 1944 is in the converted former tramway power station in the Wola district.On entering you can use pre-War telephone receivers to listen to the memories of participants in the uprising.Among the many clever installations is the Kino palladium, a cinema showing the footage collected by the insurgents and screened at the Warsaw Palladium during the uprising. There are also replicas of the sewers that the fighters used to get around, while ‘before and after’ photographs of the city bring home the ruthlessness of the German backlash.
- End your day at Palace of Culture and Science upon Visit: Whatever your opinion on this enormous building, it is practically ever-present in Warsaw.At 237 metres the Palace of Culture and Science is the tallest building in Poland, and on its 42 floors are four theatres, a multi-screen cinema, two museums, the 3,000-seater Congress Hall, government offices, academic institutions and private companies.Taking cues from Art Deco skyscrapers and Polish Historicism, this immense Stalinist complex was a ‘gift from the Soviet Union to the people of Poland’ in 1955, and that’s just one of the reasons it evokes mixed feelings.
- If an international event is taking place in Warsaw there’s a good chance it will go down at the Congress Hall, while there’s an observation terrace on the 30th floor open 10:00-20:00 for the ultimate panorama of the city.
- Back to hotel and overnight stay.
- Breakfast at the Hotel.
- Pick up from the hotel for your full day tour.
- Visit Lazienki Palace: On the artificial island in the lake at Łazienki Park is the sublime Classical palace conceived in the 18th century for King Stanisław II Augustus.The property is a conversion of a Baroque bathing pavilion for Count Stanisław Herakliusz Lubomirski from the century before, and has kept some of the architecture from that first building.The north facade has a portico at the shore of the lake, while the main entrance is in a recess with powerful Corinthian columns, while the roof is hemmed by a balustrade carrying statues of mythological figures.The ground floor has lavishly decorated salons (The Solomon Room is a stand-out), and the Lower Gallery, has paintings by Jacob Jordaens, Rembrandt and Rubens.Upstairs is the Upper Gallery, as well as the King’s splendid cabinet and bedchambers.
- Free time @ Lazienki Park: Warsaw’s largest park is an anchor on the Royal Route and is an excursion of choice for families and couples on the weekend.The park started out as the royal baths (Łazienki translates to “baths”) and was enriched in the 18th century by a grand plan during the reign of King Stanisław II Augustus.In these 76 leafy hectares are palaces, pavilions, two orangeries, an amphitheatre, a planetarium, follies, promenades, water features and monuments of national standing.
- Next you will Visit National Museum: Warsaw’s biggest museum is also one of the largest in Poland and has a huge assortment of historical artefacts from many places and eras. The collection of antiquities is noteworthy, made up of some 11,000 Egyptian, Greek and Roman pieces. Also set aside an hour or two to see everything in the Faras Gallery.This is furnished with Nubian early Christian frescoes, friezes and architectural elements brought here from the Egyptian-Sudanese border before the construction of the Aswan High Dam flooded the valley. In the collection of Polish Medieval art from the 14th and 15th centuries are works produced for churches and cathedrals, including devotional paintings, altarpieces and sculptures.And there’s also lots of art from the Early Modern Age and 19th century, by well-known names like Lucas Cranach the Elder, Brueghel the Elder, Rembrandt, Courbet and Renoir.
- Free time @ Nowy Swiat Street: Also on the Royal Route, this one-kilometre artery leads southwards from Krakowskie Przedmieście down to Three Crosses Square. Nowy Świat Street’s origins lie in the 16th century when it was first used by the upper class to reach their properties in the countryside south of the old town.As Warsaw grew, the city’s wealthier and aristocratic residents built homes along the street.And by Napoleonic times these were remodelled from half-timbered buildings into fine neoclassical mansions and villas.The thoroughfare has cafes, upmarket shops and international retailers like Sephora by day and lots of nightspots with international clientele when the sun goes down
