Poland + Czech Republic Private Tour

Local Time

Why You Should Go

A Poland/Czech Republic private tour offers a culturally compelling snapshot of two contrasting Eastern European countries. Though we enjoy Warsaw, we fully admit that Krakow is our favorite, engaging city in Poland. In addition to being a lively walking-city, there is the haunting and sobering Auschwitz Concentration Camp. A half-day visit here is an unforgettable experience, and most instructive of the horrors of the Holocaust.

While Paris is perhaps our favorite city on the European continent, Prague remains our most well-like city in Central Europe; think of a more Bohemian, less ____ version of Paris. Similar to Paris, Prague was heavily undamaged in WWII and offers views of striking Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque architecture. We enthusiastically recommend a full-day excursion to beautiful Cesky Krumlov, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and considered by many to be Bohemia’s prettiest city.

Day 4

Warsaw/Czestochowa/Krakow
Following breakfast, you will be privately driven to Krakow. For several reasons we feel Krakow to be perhaps a more engaging, interesting city than Warsaw. Up until 1596, Krakow was the capital of Poland and has maintained its role as one of the leading centers of Polish cultural life. You may stop at the Jasna Gora Pauline Monastery, the holiest site in all of Poland.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Accommodations: Sheraton Krakow Hotel

Museums, restaurants, and artisanal shops abound, you will have your choice of sites to visit. Of special note Oskar Schindler’s Factory and now museum, that tells the story of the Jewish people during Nazi occupation.

Day 6

Auschwitz Berkenau Concentration Camp
Following breakfast, you will be driven to the haunting and infamous Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp, the most notorious site of the Third Reich, for all day touring. The camp was preserved as a memorial to the millions who perished (among 28 nationalities). Despite the history of this place, we feel a visit to Auschwitz is most instructive of the horrors of the Holocaust.

Hotels

Opened in 2004, the 61-room boutique 5-star Mamaison Hotel Le Regina has been our favorite luxury property in Warsaw for quite some time. Close to the Old Town in a nice quiet area of the city, the hotel is actually a restored 18th century palace. We particularly like the rooms’ Italian-made custom furniture and the marble floor bathrooms – please note the bathrooms come with a tub/shower as one unit. Nice indoor swimming pool.

Although we have used the smaller Hotel Copernicus and Hotel Stary, we prefer the Sheraton Krakow, as it is the only international class hotel in the city. The Sheraton folks rate this hotel as 5-star; we more judicially rate this property as mid 4-star. We particularly like the Sheraton’s location near the Wawel Royal Castle, on the banks of the Wisla River.

This evening, we have arranged for you to eat at Tetmajerowska Hawelka Restaurant, a traditional Polish restaurant situated on Market Square. Enjoy Polish classics, like fillet of pork cooked in the style favored by the goodly King Stas. The roast duck is a favorite.

Although we use Four Seasons properties throughout the world, many of our clients prefer more historical, unique, boutique 5-star hotels, if possible. In the case of Prague, we feel the smaller, luxury Augustine and Aria Hotels offer a more enriching high-end overnight experience when staying in Prague. This sleek, modern 51-room luxury boutique property is located in the quaint Mala Strana (Little Quarter) area, near the Charles Bridge, Prague Castle, and Old Town Square. We prefer the contemporary-designed deluxe rooms, with views of either St. Nicholas Church or the winter garden atrium. We very much enjoyed the rooftop restaurant during our stay here (weather permitting!)
