4 Nights in Krakow

Krakow may not be the largest city in Poland, but it is by far the most popular with travelers. Less industrial than Warsaw, Krakow was once Poland’s royal capital, and unlike the rest of the country, came out of World War II with its gorgeous architecture mostly unscathed. One glance at the city’s perfectly preserved and restored Old Town and it will be abundantly clear why Krakow is on the UNESCO World Heritage list. This compact historical district houses the largest square in Europe, where you can stroll, shop from the market and sample some tasty Polish delicacies. And, if you’re in the mood you can also sip some of Poland’s famous vodka infused with tangy buffalo grass. Krakow’s cultural life is rich and there are more than enough classical and jazz concerts to attend during your stay. Just walk through Old Town any evening and you’ll find warmly lit cafes, restaurants and bars. Of course, not all of the city’s history is happy, and both the Jewish Heritage in Krakow as well as nearby Auschwitz concentration camp are a chilling and vivid reminder of World War II. You can also explore Poland’s natural wonders from Krakow, with visits to the atmospheric Wieliczka Salt Mine, and the Tatra Mountains all comfortable day trips.

Prepare to be amazed at the devotion that drove miners to carve figures, monuments and altar pieces into the walls of an 800-year-old salt mine. This underground world has earned a place on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage list. As you descend 360 of the tour's total 800 steps into the salt mine, you'll feel like you're entering a vast underground city complete with huge caverns and underground lakes, 135 meters beneath the surface. One of the most unique aspects is the largest underground chapel, devoted to Saint Kinga, a Hungarian princess who is said to have spurned a marriage proposal by the Polish king by tossing his engagement ring into a salt mine in Transylvania. When Wieliczka's devout miners miraculously found the ring, she took the hint. After walking for 3 kilometers/2 miles, you'll visit the snack bar and souvenir shop, then ride an elevator back to the surface. We do not recommend this tour for people with mobility issues.

Wroclaw is a city of colorful culture and a variety of influences in the architecture and cuisine.

From nightlife to historical explorations, there’s an abundance of ways to enjoy Wroclaw. The compact historical center can be explored on foot, and there are many fascinating buildings here to appreciate, as well as an abundance of restaurants, bars and cafes.

For many people in Poland, Poznan is a city for doing business. But there's another, more interesting side of Poznan that's visible at any given time in the city's Old Town.

Poznan is also known as the capital of the Saint Martin's croissant, a famous local delicacy that's mostly eaten on November 11, Saint Martin's Day, though you can certainly find it all year round. If you'd like to explore the surrounding region, there are very good transport connections and opportunities for fun day trips. All in all, this charming city will capture your heart with an atmosphere you can feel on every street.

Gdansk has a rich and volatile history, due mostly to its position at the mouth of the Vistula River on the Baltic Sea. That has been bad news for the city’s inhabitants throughout history, but today it’s good news for visitors. With its rare blend of historic architectural styles from varied cultures, Gdansk offers reminders of Polish, Prussian, and Napoleonic rulers. While some of the city recalls Poland, other parts will remind you of Amsterdam and other port cities from the north of Europe. You’ll have a great time exploring all the various corners of the city on foot, but there’s much more to do here than just look at interesting buildings. Old Town and Westplatte are two areas you won’t want to miss. Don’t forget to pay a visit to Long Market, where you can find many local arts and crafts. And outside of the city, Malbork Castle is one of the most popular day trips. History will come alive for you here as you explore the different tours and museums on the castle grounds. Or you could go a little farther afield with a tri-city day trip including visits to Gdansk, Sopot and Gdynia, all of which have a unique charm that’s even more impressive when compared with the other nearby cities.

Once you leave the camp, you'll visit Lublin's Old Town, full of charming historical buildings, and a unique neoclassical castle. Once one of Poland's wealthiest cities, it was a symbol of culture and higher learning for centuries, and one of the prides of a vanished empire.

We plotted our honeymoon to Poland (yes, our honeymoon!). Been everywhere in Europe except where my family came from, and Igor and Jared set up an AMAZING 3 weeks of easy travel. The perfect mix of urban and countryside getaway, with prompt pick ups, great tours, fantastic (over the top) accommodations. (Poland is VERY inexpensive and you can live like a king there. Some hotels you never want to leave! I highly recommend Poland as a destination and I can not recommend JayWay Travel any higher...they are professional, in touch and just perfect. I cannot thank them enough!
