    DAY 1
    Arrival-Warsaw
    • Arrive at Warsaw Chopin International Airport in Poland.
    • Pickup from Airport and transfer to the hotel.
    • Check-In to the hotel and rest (Evening free at leisure).
    • Back to hotel and overnight stay.
    DAY 2
    Warsaw
    • Breakfast at the hotel.
    • Pickup from the hotel for your full day tour.
    • 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 Stanisław II Augustus’ New Town at the end of the 18th century, this square was the epicentre 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.
    DAY 3
    Warsaw
    • 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.
    DAY 4
    Warsaw
    • 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.
    • Back to hotel and overnight stay.
    DAY 5
    Warsaw – Krakow (Approx 4 Hours Drive)
    • Breakfast at the hotel.
    • Check out from the hotel and get transferred to Krakow the second busiest city of Poland by the tourist.
    • Arrive and Visit Saint Mary’s Basilica: Built on the foundations of an earlier church also leveled by the Mongols, this Brick Gothic wonder is from the beginning of the 14th century, and would be reworked over the next few decades.The St. Mary’s Trumpet Call is played from the top of the taller of the two towers, on the hour every hour. This is in memory of the 13th-century city trumpeter sounding the alarm for the Mongol attack.He was shot in the throat mid-way through the call, which is why the tune breaks off abruptly. Within, the stained glass windows and the gold stars on the blue background in the vaults are sublime.
    • Next explore the Ryney Glowny Main Square, Krakow: One of the largest medieval squares in Europe, Krakow’s central marketplace has been the commercial, social and administrative focal point of the city since the middle of the 13th century.This grand plaza measures 200 metres by 200 and was laid out in the years after Kraków was razed by the Mongol invasion, so is also an enduring piece of medieval urban design.A few of the monuments on this list are on or near the square, like the Cloth Hall and St Mary’s Basilica.At the borders of the Main Square are long rows of townhouses.And although these took on Neoclassical facades at the turn of the 20th century, the buildings within are usually far older.See for instance Wierzynek, a restaurant going back to medieval times, and where the Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV and Elizabeth of Pomerania celebrated their wedding in 1364.But the star of the show is the largest Gothic altarpiece in the world.Completed in 1484, it was carved over seven years by German sculptor Veit Stoss, with lime-wood sculpted figures up to 2.7 metres high.
    • Transfer to hotel, Check-in and overnight stay
    DAY 6
    Krakow
    • Breakfast at the hotel.
    • Pick up from the hotel for your full day tour.
    • Visit Wawel Castle: A monument of immeasurable national importance, the UNESCO-listed Wawel Castle completes an ensemble with the cathedral on its lofty perch above the Old Town.The castle has architecture of every style from Romanesque to Baroque and was the seat of the King of Poland from the 13th century to the 17th century.A fallow period then arrived, after the capital was moved to Warsaw and the castle was damaged by the Swedish invasion in the 1650s, but since the 1940s Wawel Castle has been a national museum, presenting the riches of the Polish monarch through sumptuous interiors, painting by Veronese, Lucas Cranach the Elder and Domenico Ghirlandaio, Gobelin tapestries and a marvellous treasury and armoury.One piece that must not be missed is Szczerbiec, the coronation sword for almost every monarch from 1320 to 1764.
    • Visit Wawel Cathedral: A monument of real national importance, Wawel Cathedral is the site of the coronation and burial of numerous Polish monarchs, national heroes and cultural figures.The current building was completed in the 14th century after the previous two were destroyed or burned down. And because of its many royal burial chapels, the cathedral has taken on a captivating variety of styles.Sigismund’s Chapel, the funerary chapel for the last of members of the Jagiellonian line, is a wonder of 16th-century Tuscan Renaissance architecture: Under a golden dome the chapel is rich with detailed carved ornamentation, stuccowork and tomb monuments by some of the leading sculptors of the day.The cathedral’s status is also underlined by the mausoleum to the Polish patron saint St Stanislaus, in which his silver sarcophagus rests under an exuberant canopy with gilded columns.
    • Next you will Visit Manggha Museum: You may not have counted on immersing yourself in Japanese culture in Kraków, but that’s just what’s on the menu at this museum across the water from Wawel.The museum and cultural centre was the initiative of film director Andrzej Wajda: He became enamoured of Japanese art after viewing the collection assembled by art critic Feliks Jasieński in the 1940s.More than four decades later Wajda, on receiving a film prize, opted to donate the money to set up a new museum for the collection. Manggha opened in 1994 and Japanese architect Arata Isozaki’s airy, oscillating design has dated very well.There are now 7,000 pieces in the collection, counting woodcuts, paintings, ceramics, furniture and samurai armour; Emperor Akihito paid a visit back in 2002.
    • Back to hotel and overnight stay
    DAY 7
    Krakow
    • Breakfast at the hotel.
    • Pick up from the hotel for your full day tour.
    • Visit Franciscan Church: This monastery church took shape in the aftermath of the Mongol Invasion, and was consecrated around the middle of the 13th century.It was the first example of Krakow’s hallmark brick and sandstone architecture, even if only the rib vaults remain from that initial building.The church suffered a near-catastrophic fire in 1850, but that handed an opportunity to the artist Stanisław Wyspiański to work his magic.The founder of the Young Poland movement, Wyspiański produced eight Art Nouveau stained glass windows for the apse and choir, and painted stunning murals with geometric and floral motifs in the transept.These are accompanied by more traditional paintings in the nave and chancel, by the landscape and historicist artists Władysław Rossowski and Tadeusz Popiel.
    • Second to visit Cloth Hall: One of the symbols for Kraków, the Cloth Hall has existed in some form since the 1200s, and the Renaissance monument at the centre of the Main Square today is from the 1500s.A trading hall for 800 years, the cloth hall testifies to Krakow’s position in the middle of Central Europe’s medieval commercial network. Most of the goods sold here came from the east, like spices, silk, wax and leather. The Cloth Hall is still a market, and if it doesn’t quite have the same cachet, it’s the first place to come if you’re stuck for gift or souvenir ideas.You can idle past stalls with handmade lace, amber jewellery and wooden handicrafts, and then head upstairs for the Sukiennice Museum.Mainly for Polish 19th-century painting, there are individual rooms devoted to Romantics like Piotr Michałowski, Academic artists in the vein of Henryk Siemiradzki and Realists like Józef Chełmoński.
    • Last you will Visit the Smocza Jama (Dragon’s Den): Burrowing through Wawel is Poland’s most famous cave, a karst formation known to all for its legendary dragon.You can meet a sculpture of this dragon in front of the entrance, installed in 1972 and even breathing fire.According to folklore the dragon was slain by King Krakus before he founded the city.At the entrance to the cathedral there are bones hanging from a chain dating to the Ice Age and claimed to belong to the dragon. The cave itself isn’t to be taken too seriously, but is a light-hearted detour if you’re overwhelmed by all the history of the Old Town.You’ll enter from the courtyard of the castle to venture through three chambers measuring 276 metres before being deposited by the Vistula at the bottom of the hill.
    • Back to the hotel and overnight stay.
    DAY 8
    Krakow
    • Breakfast at the hotel.
    • Today you will be picked up from the hotel for your full day tour.
    • Visit Tyniec Abbey: Ten kilometres southwest of the Old Town, but still belonging to Kraków, Tyniec is a village on a limestone canyon by the Vistula.You’ll know why you made the trip when you catch sight of the towers of this Benedictine Abbey posted on the cliff top. This is a functioning monastery, but you can go on a guided tour and visit a small museum, displaying objects from recent excavations. Tyniec Abbey dates to the 11th century, and has been left with a Baroque design after being ransacked by Tatars and Czechs in the 1300s and then the Swedes in the 17th century.You can come for concerts and vespers at the church in the summer, while there’s a little cafe on the belvedere, and a gift shop selling items of specialty food and cosmetics made by the monks.
    • Next you will Visit Saints Peter and Paul Church: Completed in just 20 years at the start of the 17th century, this Mannerist and Baroque church was the work of Italians, both inside and out.Giovanni Maria Bernardoni finalised the initial plan, which was modified by another Italian Giovanni Battista Trevano, who was responsible for the dome, facade and much of the interior. The facade is fashioned from dolomite and has statues of saints in its niches and on the pedestals in front. Yet another Italian Giovanni Battista Falconi produced the vibrant ornamental stuccowork in the interior, as well as the scenes from the life of St Peter and St Paul in the apse.The church has also had a Foucault’s Pendulum since 1949. This is hung from a height of 46.5 metres, and if you visit on Thursday morning there are demonstrations on the hour showing earth’s rotation.
