Start your journey:
Krakow is by far Poland’s biggest draw, and once you arrive it’ll be immediately apparent why. Once the royal capital for 500 years, the city is now a treasure trove of Gothic and Renaissance architecture...
One of central Europe’s jewels; with a history that stretches back to the 10th century. Cathedrals, castles, cafes—and a centuries-old salt mine: everything comes together in this Polish city...
At the stroke of every hour, a melodious trumpeting from St. Mary’s Basilica echoes throughout Krakow’s Old Town, a legacy that dates back seven centuries...
Dive deep into Wesele in Old Town. Mornings are the best time in Europe’s largest medieval square. Overflowing buckets of blooms are hauled to the flower market while pushcarts dispense fresh obwarzanek—a ring-like Polish bagel topped with salt. The square’s centerpiece is the 14th-century, Gothic-style St. Mary’s Basilica, featuring stained glass windows, gilded interiors, and a wonderful choir during the evening service...
The seven-mile-long Royal Route was the coronation path of Polish kings and is the main sightseeing artery for many Old Town masterpieces...
The route begins at the foot of Wawel Hill (maps are available on the street along the way) and runs through lively Grodzka Street...
Pause at Saints Peter and Paul’s Church to examine the 12 apostles who adorn its grand frontage. Walk through leafy Jagiellonian University, where Copernicus studied in the 15th century...
The path leads through the main square and St. Florian’s Gate, ending at St. Florian’s Church...
Twenty minutes from the main square lies the historic Jewish district of Kazimierz, which featured prominently in Steven Spielberg’s Schindler’s List. Pre-World War II, the area was a buzzing center of Jewish life, with nearly 65,000 residents, six synagogues, and kosher markets...
But after the Nazi occupation, Kazimierz bore the aura of a ghost town for many years. Today, the district has been reinvented as one of Krakow’s trendiest enclaves, full of bohemian caffees, hip bars, and high-energy nightclubs. The district maintains a large part of its Jewish heritage...
One of the most valuable art collections in Europe, the Czartoryski Museum includes a bit of everything: masterpieces of European painting, sculpture, applied arts, Egyptian artifacts, Far Eastern art, Polish historical memorabilia, priceless books and documents from the Czartoryski Library...

The Wieliczka Salt Mines is a UNESCO World Heritage site and virtual underground city, with magnificent chambers chiselled from rock salt, amazing underground saline lakes, majestic timber constructions and unique statues sculpted in salt. The mine combines many centuries of tradition and modernity, the history of several hundred years and an underground metropolis with extensive infrastructure.
During the tour, you’ll also have the opportunity to see a completely different image of the mine and learn about the legend of Princess Kinga and how she brought the salt treasure to Polish land. Half way along the route, you can see the wondrous chapel dedicated to the princess and the saline works of art decorating the chapel.
And at the end of the tour take a moment for reflection with a light and sound spectacle on the shores of one of the saline lakes
Wrocław ‘s past is unbelievably complex, and over the last 1,000 years it has come under the control of eight different kingdoms and empires.
Under the Hapsburg Monarchy in the Early Modern Age Wroclaw gained much of its Baroque architecture and cultural institutions like a university that has produced nine Nobel prize winners.
You might also hear Wroclaw described as “Poland’s Venice”, as the Oder River breaks off into separate arms, crossed by more than 100 bridges.
Frederick the Great chose this Baroque palace as his residence after Prussia took over Silesia in the 1740s.
Over the next century each Prussian king would make extensions and add his own touches, from Rococo to Neoclassical and Neo-Renaissance.
You can get up to speed on the complicated 1,000-year history of the city, ponder a wealth of artefacts and view the palace’s sublime interiors.
The Market Square and Cathedral Island in Old Town have to be your priorities, but Wrocław will also reward people who just want to wander and see in this wonderful city.

Lodz was once a small village that first appears in written records in 1332. In 1423 it was granted town rights, but it still remained a rather small and insubstantial town. It was the property of Kuiavian bishops until the end of the XVIII-th century, when Lodz passed to Prussia as a result of the second partition of Poland. After spending about ten years within the borders of the independent Duchy of Warsaw, the city joined the Russian-controlled Polish Kingdom.
The XIX-th century brought with it constant industrial development for Lodz. The first cotton mill was opened in 1825 and soon the city grew into being the most powerful textile centre in the Russian Empire. Workers came from all over Europe, creating a multinational population with three dominating groups: Poles, Jews and Germans...
It is the second largest Polish city, and has its own unique atmosphere. It is also sometimes known as the Polish Manchester due to its size and the fame of the textile industry that developed there in the XIX-th century.
Unreasonably overlooked, Lodz is worth a visit and definitely deserves promotion. It features fine Art Nouveau architecture, a rowdy nightlife and the most famous Polish film school. A visit to Lodz will undoubtedly leave you with memorable impressions and a better understanding of Poland.
Warsaw is the capital and largest city of Poland. Rather than being centred on an old market square, modern-day Warsaw is spread across a broad area and includes an eye-catching range of architecture: restored baroque, Gothic, neoclassical and Renaissance in the Old and New Towns; gems of the post-WWII socialist realist period.
This jumble reflects the city’s tumultuous past and makes for a fascinating collection of neighbourhoods and landmarks.
As the royal capital for several centuries, Warsaw is blessed with the beautiful palace and parklands at Wilanów, aptly described as Poland's Versailles, and the park and serene Palace on the Isle of Łazienki. Greenery also abounds at the central Saxon Garden, Krasiński Garden and the rooftop garden of the University Library. Not to be missed is a stroll beside the Vistula River: on the west bank runs the Vistulan Boulevard, a contemporary promenade dotted with waterside bars and cafes, while on the eastern Praga side nature holds sway with meandering, wooded pathways leading to sandy beaches.
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
