WARSAW – 3 DAY TOUR

WARSAW TOUR

Visit the buzzing capital of Poland. Once called “Paris of East” and the World’s capital of Jeddish culture, the city lots its ‘old’ beauty in the WWII. However, it didn’t stop “Warszawianie” (in Polish: the citizens of Warsaw) from rebuilding it. Nowadays the reconstructed Old Town is listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List next to the Egyptian Pyramids and the French Versailles. Having the population over 2 million citizens, Warsaw offers all the attractions of the European metropolis, but because of its complicated history and unconventional beauty it is more demanding to appreciate it after the visit to the charming Cracow. Let’s enjoy Warsaw highlights with our tour!
