Enjoy sightseeing with a Local Guide—an expert in the city’s history, sights, culture, and secrets—in Warsaw, Gdansk, Torun, Poznan, and Kraków. Torun is the birthplace of renaissance astronomer Copernicus and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the Middle Ages, it was a prominent trade center as a member of the Hanseatic League.. Dating back to the 7th century, Kraków is known as Poland’s most beautiful city and cultural capital. Here, your sightseeing features the Market Square, one of Europe’s loveliest squares; Wawel Hill, and St. Mary’s Church, an icon of the city. Gdansk is a beautiful port city on the Baltic Sea which played an important role in recent history by facilitating the events that brought to the fall of the Berlin wall.

On this Poland tour, you’ll visit Jasna Góra, the monastery near Czestochowa, an important pilgrimage spot. Its Black Madonna, a painting of the Virgin Mary, is a symbol of the country and venerated as the "Queen of Poland." You'll also visit what is left of the Auschwitz concentration camp, a chilling reminder of the Holocaust.
