Day
1-3
Our tour begins in the beautiful, mythical city of Krakow​. ​According to legend,​ Krakow was founded after the defeat of a man-eating dragon, and ​​its​ mythical atmosphere ​lingers still in its picturesque streets and squares. Take a walk through the colourful market square​, Rynek Glowny. ​We will also pay a visit to the Former Auschwitz Nazi Concentration Camp, and explore the site’s poignant museum and memorial. Explore the Wielczka Salt mines, that reach 135 meters underground and even have chapels inside!
Day
4-5
We leave the large cities behind, and head up into the mountain region of Podhale - an enchanted world of regional arts and crafts. Our destination is Zakopane, home to a rich folk culture, and the center of a proud Polish highlander tradition. This is most clearly noticed in the mountain dwellings, folk costumes, lively music, and distinctive cooking. Music makes up an integral part of this highlander culture.
Day

SAs we head through the Polish countryside on the way to Sanok, we’ll stop in the small town of Krynica Zdroj that is known for its healing mineral waters, and for being the main hub of Lemko culture.

For those who would like a little extra medieval history, we also offer the option of a day trip to the castles of the area.
Day

We finish our tour in the heart of Ukraine: its bustling and historic capital, Kyiv! Discover one of the oldest and most beautiful cities of Eastern Europe.
