If you think about the Polish people you know, you’d probably describe them as colourful characters. Friendly, sociable, exuberant, natural and full of life. Visit Poland itself and you’ll find that description also fits their beautiful country.
The Poles do like a party. So join a luxury, escorted tour to Poland and - depending on when you visit – you will see how the locals celebrate St Dominic’s Fair. You’ll also be able to experience the rich heritage of the Jewish Cultural Festival. You’ll hear compositions by Krzysztof Penderecki and world class music at Misteria Paschalia and the International Chopin Piano Competition. If you’re a film fanatic, you could find yourself rubbing shoulders with the glitterati at the Warsaw International FilmFest.
Even the cities are something of a pageant; wandering through the streets of Warsaw’s Old Town is like turning the pages of a pictorial history book; the architecture illustrating the city’s past, with influences drawn from the four points of the compass.
And beyond the lively towns there’s more to charm and delight. Tiny villages have a sleepy rusticity that gives you a clear insight into the traditional country lifestyle with its rich patina of generation-to-generation folklore. The surrounding countryside is as varied as it is beautiful. So you can expect your luxury, escorted tour to take you from the picturesque coast of the Baltic Sea to towering mountains, from dense and quiet forests to open parkland and serene lakes. All naturally welcoming – just like the people.
