After the sighsteeing and lunch break you are going to head for Gdańsk.

For some of you Gdańsk may be the most familiar city in Poland. It is the home of Lech Wałęsa, Solidarity and former Lenin Shipyards...
It is believed to be the most beautiful city of Nothern Europe. It outstands with precious historical sites as well as with turbulent history. In 1939, the first shots of World War II were taken here.

Wrocław – the capital city of the Lower Silesia region is the fourth largest city in Poland...
Throughout centuries, different influences and the changing Polish borders affected the city. Needless to say, before World War II the city belonged to Germany! Now, you can admire those multicultural influences of the city and its architecure. We will start the sightseeing with a walk around the marvelous Main Market. Our English- speaking guide will take you round to show the eye-catching Old Town Hall built in the 13th century, the gothic Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, the impressive building of the University of Wrocław with the magnificent baroque hall of Aula Leopoldina.

It is an Evangelical Church, built in the 17th century – the largest timber-framed religious construction in Europe. The next stop is the Książ Castle – one of the best-preserved castles in the Lower Silesia region. This majestic residence was transformed into a bomb-proof bunker for Hitler during the war. Return to Wrocław in the afternoon for the overnight.

While there, you can stop to visit the oldest shopping mall – the Sukiennice cloth hall, and then the Church of the Virgin Mary with its magnificent Gothic wooden altar by Veit Stoss. The tour finishes at the fortified city walls beside the Barbican Gate. After a quick moment of rest, prepare to be amazed at the devotion and faith, not to mention superstition, that drove miners to carve figures, monuments and altarpieces into the walls of an 800-year-old salt mine in Wieliczka. As you walk down the 360 steps into the salt mine, you get the impression of entering a vast underground city, complete with huge caverns and underground lakes. This subterrean world has earned a place on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage list. You will visit the largest chapel, devoted to St Kinga, the patron saint of salt miners. The underground church is richly decorated with chandeliers, sculptures, and religious figures carved out of salt.

My father and I recently returned from our Ultimate Poland tour and we really cannot express how impressed we were with the RealPoland coordination, staff, accommodations, food, local guides and transportation. The itinerary was filled with visits to key historic and cultural sites along with some fun activities like making our own Polish pottery and a pierogi workshop - admittedly, my father and I still need to work on these skills. The accommodations were top class European standard hotels. Breakfast each day was provided in the hotels and dinners were pre-planned at various interesting restaurants in whichever city or town we happened to be staying. Lunch was on us, this may seem daunting but the tours are arranged so that a convenient lunch break happens in a square or Old Town area with an ample choice of cafes and restaurants. As for the Polish cuisine, don’t expect kielbasa and pierogis for every meal - they like to mix it up for you.

Our original intent for taking the tour was to learn more about our Polish heritage. We asked to add an extra day on the end so that we could visit my great grandparents village - the Real Poland staff took care of everything for us, an extended itinerary with hotel, transportation and a local guide.

I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed the beautiful county of Poland. It's clean, safe and very affordable. Additionally, the staff at RealPoland are amazing - especially all of the "Magdas". If you are considering a trip to Poland and are worried about getting around or finding the right tour I would highly recommend RealPoland they are first class.

Natalia' and Magda's quick responsiveness was tremendous! Overall, my total xperience with Real Poland was excellent. They were helpful during setting up my tour plans, and also very helpful when we had to cancel. Natalia researched my grandfather and found lots of information about him that I did not know. I am satisfied with the work she did and I look forward to traveling to Poland in the future. I hope to visit the area where he was from and maybe meet some of my relatives.
