“A lot of people are surprised by Poland because they do not know what to expect. However, Poland has it all, vibrant colorful cities, beautiful landscapes, mountains, beaches, great food and so much history to uncover. You just get every aspect of travel, and all of your senses are engaged.
“The cities are amazing. For example, every time you see a list of must-see destinations in magazines, you’ll always find Kraków and Gdańsk in the top ten. Krakow is a beautiful cultural city, a former royal capital which hasn’t changed much in the last 500 years. Gdańsk, a beautiful port city on the Baltic coast, is one of the real hot spots of Europe from a historical point of view – the first shots of WWII were fired there, and it played a crucial role in the fall of communism. These are just two of Poland’s beautiful historic cities that we visit, many of which have had an extensive facelift and restoration process undertaken since the fall of communism, creating colorful, exciting destinations that just blow people away.
“Top highlights of the tours are the visit to Gniezno Cathedral with its magnificent, sculpted bronze doors, an absolute treasure of 12th-Century Romanesque artwork that tell the story of Bishop Adalbert of Prague, who bought Christianity to Poland. We visit the museums and the monuments of Auschwitz, which guests find very a moving experience. Then in Poznań guests can enjoy a traditional croissant making demonstration and have a go themselves, definitely a fun Insight moment – St Martin is the patron saint of Poznań and the St Martin’s croissant is filled with white poppy seeds, a local specialty, about 2000 calories and totally delicious!”
