Krakow. After breakfast we will meet our guide for a half day walking tour of Poland’s former capital, considered by many to be the most beautiful city in the country. Our centrally located hotel is ideally positioned only a five minute walk from the main market square with the historic Cloth Hall in its centre. Other attractions include Wawel Royal Castle, built on Wawel Hill, where people have been living for 50,000 years and where, over the past 1,000 years, Polish Kings decided to take up residence.

Wieliczka Salt Mine & Zakopane. This morning, we will leave Krakow behind and travel to the Wieliczka Salt Mine, a stunning “underground town” located on nine levels with chambers connected by
corridors. We have the chance to visit twenty of the historic chambers with their saline lakes, remarkable salt sculptures and the marvellous St Kinga Chapel. There is a shortened tour available by lift for groups who are not able to manage the stairs (there are 800 of them!). After perhaps enjoying lunch in the underground ‘Miner’s Tavern’, we will re-board our coach and make our way southwards to the Polish resort of Zakopane and our second hotel, the Grand Nosalowy Dwor Resort & Spa located at the foot of the Tatra Mountains.
