Resilient, devoted, and charging towards the future – Poland is one of Europe’s most intriguing countries
Tours in Poland
Poland has disappeared from the map of Europe many times over the centuries, a casualty of the battle line between East and West. But it has emerged as a newly confident and welcoming nation, sure of its place in the world. Visit the grand capital of Warsaw, the cultural heart of Krakow, its 14th century Wawel Castle rising above the Old Town – and the gritty port city of Gdansk, where the Velvet Revolution of 1989 started. History here is rich, endowed with literature and culture and whose fervent religious faith has survived the ravages of both Nazi Germany and Communist Russia. But it’s all the richer for the juxtapositions. Pay a visit to the sobering Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, and take in the beauty of the Tatra Mountains in the delightful spa town of Zakopane.
