Tours

 is a story of rebirth. Once you’ve travelled around Poland, you realise this: Warsaw is different. Rather than being centred on an old market square, the capital is spread across a broad area with diverse architecture: restored Gothic, communist concrete, modern glass and steel.
This jumble is a sign of the city’s tumultuous past. Warsaw has suffered the worst history could throw at it, including virtual destruction at the end of World War II – and survived. As a result, it’s a fascinating collection of neighbourhoods and landmarks. Excellent museums interpret its complex story, from the joys of Chopin’s music to the tragedy of the Jewish ghetto.
It’s not all about the past, however. Warsaw’s restaurant and entertainment scene is the best in Poland. You can dine well and affordably here on cuisines from around the world, and take your choice of lively bars and clubs. This gritty city knows how to have fun.

The history of the Royal Castle and the Old Town  goes way back to medieval times. Since 1656, when the capital of Poland was moved to Warsaw, the castle became a royal residence and home of the Polish Parliament. This is the place where the Four-year Gathering of Parliament passed the Constitution of the 3rd of  May in 1791. The constitution was at the time a very modern type of document, first of such type in Europe, and second in the world.  The visit to castle includes: Court and Parliament Halls from the 16th and 17th centuries, as well as the Royal Apartment, the Great Apartment, and the abode of the old Parliament.
The tour continues from the Castle Square, and the monument of King Sigismund III Vasa to the Market Square. The characteristic sculpture of the king on a tall column is the oldest secular monument in Poland. Next we pass by the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist, the oldest church in the capital. The market square welcomes us with many colourful tenements of interesting architectural design. In the middle of the square there is a monument presenting the Mermaid – the heraldic crest of Warsaw. In 1980 the Old Town and the Royal Castle were brought into UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
