Your itinerary

Day 1

Fly direct to Warsaw. On arrival make your own way to your hotel. (Instructions on how to reach your hotel using public transport will be provided. Alternatively, airport transfers can be pre-booked at a supplement.) Spend the rest of the day getting to know the Polish capital.

Day 2

Warsaw: There is much to see and learn in Warsaw.  An absolute must is a visit to the Stare Miasto (Old Town).  Although completely obliterated during the war, the area has been painstakingly reconstructed with the look and feel of the city prior to its destruction, even using the original bricks where possible. The Rynek Starego Miasta (Market Square) dates back to the 13th century and has a lively atmosphere and a choice of cafes, bars and restaurants to just sit, relax and watch the world go by.  You might want to continue with a visit to the Jewish Cemetery. It is amongst the largest in the world and has become the final resting place of rabbis, intellectuals as well as local people.

Day 3

Warsaw: Another popular attraction is the park-palace complex of Lazienki Park, the largest park in Warsaw, which links the Royal Castle, itself a national monument and UNESCO World Heritage Site, to the beautiful Wilanow palace, nicknamed the Polish Versailles. The park also contains its own Palace on the Water, a roman inspired amphitheatre and the Little White House. For many film fans and historians a trip to Warsaw will include a visit to the Jewish Ghetto where they will be able to retrace the steps of the composer and pianist Wladsylaw Szpilman, whose story was told in Roman Polanski’s film, The Pianist. Music lovers may want to remember one of the city’s most famous residents and the Fryderyk Chopin Museum dedicated to his life is housed at the Ostrogski Palace. A visit to Warsaw’s former Gestapo HQ museum is a stark reminder of man’s capacity for cruelty, and a telling reminder of Poland’s recent history.

Day 4

Check out of your hotel and, if time permits, enjoy a few final hours in Warsaw before making your own way to the airport for the return flight to the UK.  Of course, if you feel three nights isn't long enough to discover all that Warsaw has to offer you may wish to stay a little longer. Extra nights can be added to your holiday at a supplement.
