Girls on their way to church near Zakopane THROUGHOUT POLAND

Poland with its rich history and lovely nature is a pretty and interesting country. Wherever you go, to the south, north, east or west - you will find something interesting. Many places in Poland are real gems and thus have been placed by UNESCO on the list of world cultural heritage. You may admire lovely architecture but you can also trek in the mountains, canoe along a river, sail on large Masurian Lakes, or enjoy cycling in a scenic, unpolluted environment.
Travelling by private car with a driver - translator allows complete flexibility, with itineraries to suit you. Although we are based in Warsaw, we can pick you up from any airport or railway station in Poland.
Tell us how much time you plan for Poland and what you would like to do and we shall together prepare the itinerary of your visit.

Below you can see two samples of popular routes starting from Warsaw:

1. GOING SOUTH to Cracow and Zakopane, via Czestochowa.

  • Czestochowa - the destination of pilgrims. In the fortified Jasna Gora Monastery the miraculous icon of the Black Madonna has been kept for over 600 years.

  • Cracow Cracow - the former capital city of Poland. Not destroyed in WW II it has retained the old architecture from different periods. No other town in this country has so many historic buildings and monuments. And there is a vast collection of works of art. And a peculiar atmosphere with a bohemian touch...
    Cracow is also famous for its former Jewish District - Kazimierz. And there is a lot to see around Cracow: Auschwitz concentration Camp (now the museum); Wieliczka Salt Mine - which offers a fascinating trip down to 136 meters below the ground level where one can admire crystal chambers and chapels hewn out in the salt rock.

  • The Tatra Mountains near Zakopane Zakopane - a resort at the foot of the Tatra Mountains. The regional culture of the locals is still part of their everyday life, they wear their folk costumes and live in beautifully carved wooden houses.
    You may take a cable-car ride to the top of Mt Kasprowy Wierch (1985 m) to get a "real feel" of rocky mountains or to hike in the woods or in one of the valleys. Trekking possible.
2. GOING NORTH to Torun, Malbork and Gdansk.

  • Torun Torun - the birthplace of Copernicus, Polish great astronomer "who stopped the sun and moved the earth". It is one of the best preserved Gothic towns in the country, with superb Medieval architecture.





  • Gdansk Gdansk - a harbour located on the Baltic Sea. The cradle of the Solidarity movement. A former Hanseatic town with very refined architecture. Popular sightseeing destination.








  • Malbork Castle Malbork Castle - one of the largest fortresses of medieval Europe built by Teutonic Knights. The castle is well restored and really fascinating with its system of defensive walls, towers, courtyards, great chambers and architectural details.
