tour highlights

Gdańsk

Like a mini-state all to itself, Gdańsk has a unique feel that sets it apart from the other cities in Poland. Centuries of maritime ebb and flow as a port city; streets of distinctively un-Polish architecture influenced by a united nations of wealthy merchants who shaped the city’s past; the to-ing and fro-ing of Danzig/Gdańsk between Teutonic Prussia and Slavic Poland; and the destruction of WWII have all bequeathed this grand old dame a special atmosphere that millions of tourists now come to enjoy.

Gdańsk

Main Town Hall, Gdańsk

The Town Hall spire, with a golden replica of King Zygmunt August on its pinnacle, dominates ul. Długa's skyline. Built in the late 14th century as the seat of city authorities, the Town Hall hosted many Polish kings. It was almost completely destroyed during WWII but rebuilt with extraordinary care. The tower contains a 37-bell clarion which was inaugurated on New Year's Eve 2000. The interior of the building, home to Gdańsk History Museum today, is lushly decorated with painted ceilings, colourful frescoes and elaborate furniture and carvings.

Main Town Hall, Gdańsk

St Mary’s Church, Gdańsk

Dominating the heart of the Main Town, St Mary’s is often cited as the largest brick church in the world. Some 105m long and 66m wide at the transept, its massive squat tower climbs 78m high into the Gdańsk cityscape. Begun in 1343, St Mary’s didn’t reach its present proportions until 1502. Don't miss the 15th-century astronomical clock, placed in the northern transept, and the church tower (405 steps above the city).

St Mary’s Church, Gdańsk

Malbork

Malbork – a scenic city on the River Nogat, famous around the world for its gigantic Teutonic castle. Its breath-taking panorama draws tourists like a magnet and invites them to stay longer. The castle can be viewed at various times of the day and from various angles. Malbork was granted incorporation charter in 1286. The Town Hall in the Old Town, John the Baptist Church and a defensive wall complex with Garncarska Gate and Mariacka Gate were built south of the castle area. The medieval castle is evidently the city’s landmark, yet Malbork has much more to offer to tourists at all ages.

Malbork

Frombork

Tucked away on the northeast edge of coastal Poland, just a few kilometres shy of Russia’s Kaliningrad enclave. Its impressive walled complex overlooking the tranquil town and the water beyond is what people come to see, and the town makes for an enjoyable day trip from Elbląg or even Gdańsk if you plan things right.

Frombork

Wormditt (Orneta)

Wormditt, a village of Old Prussians, was first mentioned in 1308. The town coat of arms depicts the worm (English: worm, dragon). The bishop of Warmia Eberhard von Neiße ordered the building of a city which received town rights in 1313 and was mainly populated by settlers from Silesia.

Prior to 1945 the area was part of Germany (East Prussia). After World War II the region was placed under Polish administration by the Potsdam Agreement under territorial changes demanded by the Soviet Union. Most Germans fled or were expelled and replaced with Poles expelled from the Polish areas annexed by the Soviet Union.

Pilgrimage Święta Lipka (Heiligelinde)

Swieta Lipka (Heiligelinde) is a small village surrounded by forests and lakes in Mazury region, northern Poland. It is known for Poland’s oldest Marian sanctuary which has been attracting pilgrims since the Middle Ages. The church is also a historic monument of outstanding value listed as one of the most magnificent examples of Baroque architecture in Poland. It enchants with its beautiful interior with rich décor and a unique 18th-century organ with moving figurines and bells. The importance and popularity of Swieta Lipka can be shown by the fact that it is sometimes called “Czestochowa of the North”.

Wolf's Lair, Kętrzyn

Wolf's Lair, Polish: Wilczy Szaniec was Adolf Hitler's first Eastern Front military headquarters in World War II. The complex, which became one of several Führer Headquarters in various parts of eastern Europe, was built for the start of Operation Barbarossa – the invasion of the Soviet Union – in 1941. The top secret, high security site was in the Masurian woods about 8 km east of the small East Prussian town of Rastenburg (now Kętrzyn, Poland). Three security zones surrounded the central complex where the Führer's bunker was located. These were guarded by personnel from the SS Reichssicherheitsdienst and the Wehrmacht's armoured Führerbegleitbrigade. Despite the security, the most notable assassination attempt against Hitler was made at the Wolf's Lair on 20 July 1944. Hitler first arrived at the headquarters on 23 June 1941. In total, he spent more than 800 days at the Wolfsschanze during a 3½-year period until his final departure on 20 November 1944. In mid-1944, work began to enlarge and reinforce many of the Wolf's Lair original buildings. The work was never completed because of the rapid advance of the Red Army during the Baltic Offensive in late 1944. On 25 January 1945, the complex was blown up and abandoned 48 hours before the arrival of Soviet forces.

Wolf's Lair

Great Masurian Lakes

Canoe Trail on the River Krutynia

It is one of the most stunning waterways in Europe.  The varied route, measuring some 100km, is one of the largest “active” attractions of the Masurian Landscape Park. The Krutynia trail is considered one of the most beautiful water routes in Europe. It is very interesting and varied not only does it pass through the Piska Forest, but also from the Mokre Lake through the Mazury Landscape Park which was created in December 1977. The River Krutynia has a cult status for kayakers as the venue for organising the most picturesque kayak safaris and attracting thousands of tourists each year.

Warsaw, Old Town

Walking the streets of the Old Town and New Town allows you to rest from the bustle of central city life. Atmospheric alleys, squares, and cosy cafés create a unique sense of history, and in the summer, the Old and New Town Squares become stages for musical and theatrical performances and open-air galleries.
