Warsaw is a dynamic metropolis in Central Europe and the capital of Poland. Painfully affected by the Second World War, the city is currently one of the most rapidly developing centres in Europe. When discovering Poland's capital city, a must-see are the 700-year-old Old Town, reconstructed after World War II with the help of Canaletto's paintings, the Royal Castle, which has been the residence of Polish rulers since the 16th century, the Warsaw Uprising Museum and the POLIN Museum of the history of Polish Jews. After two days in Warsaw, you will set off for an extraordinary land with the most sunny days of the year and an iodine concentration comparable only with seaside resorts - Roztocze, and on the way there you will visit one of the most romantic towns in Poland - Kazimierz Dolny.
1: Arrival in Warsaw. A driver will be waiting for you at the airport
to take you to your chosen hotel.
Day 2: After breakfast you will meet your private guide and set off to discover Warsaw. You will visit the historical Old Town, which is listed by UNESCO, you will visit the Royal Castle and take a walk along the Royal Route, which will lead you to Łazienki Park, where you will visit the famous palace on the water and the monument of Chopin. With our guide you will also have the opportunity to visit less touristic places and get to know Warsaw from a local's perspective.
Day 3: Today is a free day where you can explore Warsaw on your own. Following our recommendations, you should visit the Warsaw Uprising Museum and take a walk along the Vistula boulevard. If you are travelling with children, make sure to go to the Copernicus Science Centre - it is a great educational spot for the little ones, but the adults will surely enjoy it too.
Day 4: Today you will be picked up by your driver (or you’ll drive yourselves) and driven to one of the most spectacular but still little discovered geographical areas in Poland - Roztocze. On the way we encourage you to stop for a few hours in Kazimierz Dolny, an idyllic little town with a very charming old town, home to many Polish artists and painters.
In the evening you will arrive at the Hotel "Szumy Park & SPA", where you will spend the next three days.
Day 5&6: Spend the next two days relaxing. If you enjoy spending time in an active way, you can rent bicycles and take a day trip to the Roztocze National Park.
Remember that your hotel is located directly at the nature trail "Nad Tanwią" where you can admire the cascades of regular waterfalls. In the evening you can enjoy a relaxing treatment at the hotel SPA.
Day 7: Today you will drive (or will be driven) to Zamość, known as the "Pearl of the Renaissance" or the Padua of the North. You will visit the beautiful old town, a UNESCO world heritage site, the fortress and one of the largest Polish churches of the 17th century, the Church of the Annunciation.
In the afternoon you will come back to your hotel, where you will spend the last night before departing from Poland.
Day 8: Return to Warsaw (or another Polish city from where you will take a flight back home).
