One of Europe’s most beguiling and beautiful cities, Kraków is the perfect choice for travellers in search of a New Year break with a difference. Join us to appreciate the elegant Gothic and Renaissance buildings of the perfectly-preserved old town, visit the Jewish Quarter which bore witness to both horror and heroism in the 1940s, explore the sobering, poignant site of Auschwitz, which marks the 75th anniversary of its liberation in 2020, and marvel at the 700-year-old UNESCO World Heritage-listed Wieliczka Salt Mine. Also awaiting discovery are churches and cathedrals, castles and monasteries – 1,000 years of history written in stone. Fine dining and fine art (including Leonardo Da Vinci’s celebrated Lady with and Ermine, now returned to the Czartoryski Museum) complete a memorable stay at a magical time of year associated with live music and colourful confetti – the Krakowian alternative to fireworks.

Tour highlights:

  • Head down into the extraordinary, centuries-old Wieliczka Salt Mine, with its vast rooms, statues and adornments, all carved from salt.
  • Explore the dramatically situated Tyniec Benedictine Monastery with its mixture of architectural styles
  • Trace centuries of Jewish history in Kraków, visit the ghetto area and take a guided tour of Auschwitz in the 75th anniversary year of its liberation.
  • Admire great works of art, including the Leonardo masterpiece Lady with an Ermine, at the Czartoryski Museum.
  • Join in with the city’s unique New Year (St. Sylwester) festivities.
