Trip Description

Poland is a country with castles, monuments, and museums that pay tribute to its dramatic history. 

We will spend 3 three nights in Warsaw to experience the city’s dynamic past and then onto Kraków, where we will tour the historic center of Kraków, including the Kazimierz district, the Wawel Hill complex, the Rynek Glowny, and the 14th‑century Mariacki Church.

We will journey to Poland’s spiritual heartland, Częstochowa, for a visit to the Pauline Monastery of Jasna Góra to see the Black Madonna Statute

Gohagan Poland

and experience a trip to a 1073-foot‑deep Wieliczka Salt Mine, called “the Underground Salt Cathedral of Poland” for its masterful carvings and ornamented chambers. Our program also includes a guided excursion to the poignant grounds of the Auschwitz‑Birkenau State Museum, where the Holocaust prisoners’ suffering is thoughtfully rendered.
