Departing from East Midlands

Day 1

Fly direct to Krakow. On arrival join the transfer to your hotel where you will spend 3 nights.

Day 2

Krakow: Krakow is known as Poland's "Capital of Culture" and has numerous excellent museums. The National Museum and the Czartoryskis Museum boast valuable collections of art, ancient handicrafts and memorabilia connected with historical figures. A visit to Wawel Castle and Cathedral perched on top of Wawel Hill cannot fail to inspire visitors.

Day 3

Krakow: Today’s full-day excursion takes you out of the city on a poignant journey of remembrance to Auschwitz, a name synonymous with tragedy, persecution and mass genocide. The largest of the World War II concentration and extermination camps, Auschwitz-Birkenau was specifically designed as a death camp not only for Jews but also for Poles, gypsies, Russian prisoners of war and other nationalities deemed fit to be there by the Nazi regime. Reaching Auschwitz after a 90-minute drive from Krakow, you’ll have an in-depth guided tour in English of both Auschwitz and Birkenau (including transportation between the two camps), lasting approximately three and a half hours. This is a thoroughly moving and utterly memorable tour that will resonate for years to come.

Day 4

Make your own way to the railway station for the journey by rail to Warsaw where you will spend 3 nights. Journey time approximately 2hrs 45mins.

Day 5

Warsaw: Overlooking the Vistuala River, it's hard to believe that Warsaw's prestigious Royal Castle was only completed in 1984, having been meticulously resurrected from its World War II ruins.

Day 6

Warsaw: The natural heart of the Old Town, Old Town Square (Rynek Starego Miasta) was razed to the ground during World War II, yet has since emerged as a spectacular architectural blend of baroque, Renaissance and Gothic styles and a vibrant and atmospheric meeting point.

Day 7

Join the transfer to the airport for the return flight to the UK.
