Later, you can visit Old Kleparz market, bursting with aromatic smells and vibrant colours, a real paradise of fresh fruit, vegetables and a variety of local cheeses. The rest of the day is at leisure. Maybe spend time browsing the shops for traditional folklore products? By night, don't miss the chance of enjoying a Polka Party with dinner and wine.(BB)

Day 4 Across the High Tatras Mountains to Zakopane

Journey into Tatras, the highest range of the Carpathian Mountains. Stay in the resort town of Zakopane, famous for its wooden houses and winter sports.

Day 5 Reflect on Auschwitz then on to Wrocław, the Venice of Poland

Travelling past the homeland of Pope John Paul II, your first stop will be the city of Oświęcim, better known throughout the world by its German name, ‘Auschwitz'. With a Local Expert, experience a moving visit to the memorial and museum of Auschwitz and a stop at Birkenau. Move on to the banks of the river Oder and the city of Wrocław, known in Polish as ‘Miasto Spotkań', the ‘meeting place'. During its long history, Wrocław has belonged to Poland, Bohemia, Austria, Prussia and Germany. See the brightly coloured façades of the noble mansions and the flower markets on the Plac Solny, the Baroque splendour of the ‘Rynek', and be introduced to Wrocław's cheeky gnomes. In the evening, you can dine at one of Europe's oldest restaurants.(BB)

Day 6 Poznań, Cradle of the Polish nation

Journey to the region of ‘Wielkopolska', considered the birthplace of Poland in the 10th century. In Poznań, enjoy free time for lunch in the old market square. Then meet a local resident who knows every nook and cranny of the Old Town. After a pleasant walking tour, drive out to Poznań's cathedral island, a fascinating place of legend, often overlooked by other visitors. Here, some of Poland's first kings are buried. For a local insight, you are guided through the beer production process at the Lech Brewery to learn the tricks of the trade, and for a well-earned taste of the ‘wondrous golden drink'.(BB / DW)
