    INCLUDED EXCURSIONS


    En Route: Lichen
    On our journey to Warsaw, we call at the small village of Lichen Stary, which is home to the impressive and lavish basilica, whose huge golden dome is visible from a distance and whose belfry houses the largest bell in Poland.
    En Route: Modlin
    Travelling from Warsaw, we call at the town of Modlin, where we can see Poland’s largest fortification complex. Set on the Vistula River, the original structure here was built on the order of Napolean Bonaparte in 1806, and later expanded by the Russians. The last defence of Modlin took place in 1939 against invasion from the Germans, where 1,700 Polish soldiers were killed and are commemorated today.
    Warsaw
    Evening Chopin Concert

    After dinner at a traditional restaurant in the city’s Old Town, we can relax and enjoy a small private concert, taking in the music of Chopin, who was born and grew up in Warsaw.

    Willanow Palace
    Full Day: Wilanow Palace and Uprising Museum
    Stunning Wilanow Palace survived both World Wars, and is one of Poland's most important monuments, as well as a member of the international association of European Royal Residences. Discover this historic building, with its fascinating museum and enjoy a stroll in the royal gardens. We’ll go on to Warsaw’s Uprising Museum, dedicated to the uprising of 1944 and contains hundreds of artefacts, ranging from weapons used by the insurgents to love letters, in order to present a full picture of the people involved.
    Half Day: Poznan-Wolsztyn Railway

    After World War II, steam power continued to be viable in Poland due to the low cost of operation and the fact that it did not require the electrification of the rails in order to run. With huge shipments needing to get from the industrial towns in southern Poland to the northern ports on the Baltic coast, steam was the answer and regular steam-hauled services ran across Poland. The steam depot in Wolsztyn still remains and thanks to dedicated volunteers, we are able to enjoy one of these  nostalgic journeys, as we travel between Wolsztyn and Poznan.

    Torun Boat Cruise
    Relax and enjoy the scenery as we enjoy a short cruise along the River Vistula, which goes through this wonderful city.

    OPTIONAL EXCURSIONS


    Half Day: Chopin Museum

    The Polish composer and pianist Frederic Chopin was born and raised in Warsaw, and is most famous for his beautiful Romantic-era piano compositions. Chopin left Warsaw for Paris just one month before the November 1830 Uprising for the Polish–Russian War.

    The Chopin Museum in Warsaw keeps the memory of Chopin alive, by showcasing his musical works. Here, we’ll gain a better understanding of the musician’s life in Warsaw, as well as exhibiting selected personal items, photographs taken by and of Chopin, and much more besides. This is a must for fans of Chopin’s music, and those interested in learning more about his life. 

    Half Day: Warsaw Castle
    Warsaw’s royal castle dates from the 14th century, and was once the residence of Poland’s kings. Featuring classicist-era architecture, the palace has been beautifully restored following its destruction during the Second World War. Inside, we’ll discover worked of art that have been salvaged from Warsaw’s old Castle, including Rembrandt's paintings ‘Girl in the Picture Frame’ and ‘Scholar at the Desk’.
