POLAND:  POLAND Kraków:  Kraków Kraków came through WWII unscathed; the 20th century's impact having been confined to acid rain. It has retained a wealth of old architecture from different periods; the tallest structures dominating Krakow's skyline are the spires of old churches. It's a city alive with character and soul. Ringed by parkland, the Old Town is both charming and compact. The Main Market Sq is flanked by historic buildings, museums and churches. St Adalbert's Church is one of the oldest, dating back to the 10th century. And the museum of museums, Czartoryski Museum, exhibits a fascinating and impressive collection of European art. Royal Castle in Warsaw:  Royal Castle in Warsaw Walking through the Royal Castle, one has to constantly remind oneself that most of it was reconstructed between 1971 and 1984, although the darker elements of the decor were actually salvaged from the ruins. The castle, located on a plateau overlooking the Vistula River, was built for the Dukes of Mazovia and expanded when King Zygmunt III Vasa moved the capital to Warsaw. From the early 17th until the late 18th century, this was the seat of the Polish kings. It subsequently housed the parliament and is now a museum displaying tapestries, period furniture, coffin portraits and collections of porcelain and other decorative arts. Work is underway to recreate the castle gardens, set on the slopes of the Vistula River, which were also badly scarred when the Nazis levelled the rest of the castle complex. Toruń:  Toruń Toruń, city and port in central Poland, capital of Toruń Province, on the Wisła River. A road and rail hub, the city is also an industrial center, with manufactures including chemicals (especially fertilizers), textiles, machinery, tools, armatures, and furniture and wood products. Toruń has been famous for its honey cakes and gingerbread ever since the Middle Ages. Preserving many medieval Gothic and baroque buildings, the old city still has a leaning tower, gates, and walls along the river. Among the old buildings of interest are the rebuilt town hall (13th-14th century), containing a museum; the churches of Saint John, Our Lady, and Saint James; ruins of a castle of the Teutonic Knights (1231); an ethnographic museum housed in a former arsenal; the Pomeranian Theater; and Gothic and baroque mansions. Łódź:  Łódź You will have the opportunity to take pictures of local historical monuments, visit the old church or cemetery. Even finding your family that remained in the land of the fathers is possible. We will be your guides and translators during the trip. Genealogy is not everything. Certainly you will be interested in seeing other tourist attractions of Poland, too. We are able to show you not only the "standard" ones, mentioned in all guides for foreigners, but wonderful sights that only "the locals" know. Come see Greater Poland, the cradle of Polish history, region of breathingly beautiful old churches, castles and palaces with its 1000 year old capital - Poznan. Poland is a wonderful adventure any time of the year and each region is worth a visit Częstochowa - Jasna Góra:  Częstochowa - Jasna Góra Jasna Gora sits on a hill above the city, and consists of a complex of buildings including the chapel where the painting resides, the basilica, the monastery, and other buildings. The complex is enclosed with fortified walls. The painting is hung above an altar in the Chapel of Our Lady. It is often dressed with decorative overlays made of gold and precious jewels. Many visitors also enjoy viewing the Baroque Basilica, with its ornate altars. Those who are fit can climb the 519 steps of the bell tower to get a magnificent view of the complex and city. Also of interest are the Treasury, the Knights Hall, and the 600th Anniversary Museum, which has on display Lech Walesa's Nobel Peace Prize among other historical artifacts. Szczecin:  Szczecin View of the Chrobry Embankment from the Castle terrace. On the top of earthwork stand three distinctive buildings: the offices of the regional government with two towers. The National Museum building together with the Contemporary Theatre with its massive tower and the buildings of the Maritime Academy. The composition of the Embankment is embellished by two pavillions and the monumental flight of steps with its fountain and semi-circular terrace with a statue of Hercules and Centaur.
