    Description

    Kraków, the former capital of Poland, is one of the most beautiful medieval cities in central Europe. It is dominated by St. Mary's Church, where buglers mark each hour, and the Cloth Hall with its unique stalls displaying handicrafts, silverware and amber. Experience an included magnificent Chopin concert in opulent surroundings during your stay. For those interested in World War II Kraków is home to the Oscar Schindler factory and a poignant visit to the former Nazi concentration camp of Auschwitz is an option.

    A short distance away is one of Poland's most famous attractions, the stunning Wieliczka Salt Mines which you will visit en route to the Tatra mountain resort of Zakopane. Here wooden chalets nestle amidst crystal clear glacial lakes. Our historic hotel is in the heart of the resort and the local markets, cafés and the funicular are within a few paces. Considered an industrial country, few realise the beauty of Poland's historic cities and natural wonders that this eight-day two-centre holiday offers.
