Strolling, choosing Christmas decorations, looking for original gifts, buy local products to share them at the Christmas table, and tasting typical snacks, accompanied by hot wine, beer, or with tea flavored with spices and fruits of the season – are some of the activities Poland offers during Christmas time. In many cities the markets also become attractive cultural spaces where carol concerts and exhibitions are held, or where you can admire beautiful nativity scenes.

WarsawWarsaw

Visit of the Polish capital. During the excursion we will get to know the most important places in the city and we will have an unforgettable opportunity to learn about the past of Warsaw and the history of Poland. We will start our tour by visiting the Old City (UNESCO) and the New City. Then we will see the Palace of the Krasinscy, the Palace of Justice and the Monument to the Warsaw Uprising. Our excursion will continue in the Royal Lazienki Park, where we will admire the summer residence of the last King of Poland and we will rest next to the famous monument to Frédéric Chopin surrounded by the wonderful nature of this place. At the end of our tour we will stop at the Christmas Market. There we will invite you to try Oscypek (smoked sheep cheese from the Polish mountains) accompanied by a cup of mulled wine. Nothing better than starting Christmas like this and feeling the Christmas spirit! Free afternoon to enjoy the markets on your own. At 7:00 p.m. entry to the Chopin concert in a spectacular concert hall. In the cobbled streets of Warsaw's Old Town, you will find a unique neoclassical concert hall with original "plaster stucco" walls, glass mirrors and elegant 19th century decorations. As you walk through the gates, you will enter Chopin's era for a two-part concert of Chopin's finest pieces performed by internationally recognized pianists. After the first part of the recital you will be invited to a glass of sparkling wine or orange juice. At the end of the concert there will be the possibility to speak with the artist and take photos. This concert is a perfect start to a romantic evening in one of the old town's restaurants and bars, but also a wonderful end to a day full of sightseeing. Overnight in Warsaw.

 

Day

Warsaw - GdanskWarsaw

In the morning departure by direct train to Gdansk. Gdansk is a very beautiful city, located in the northern part of Poland on the southern coast of the Baltic Sea, which attracts millions of tourists every year. The walk  through the streets of the Old City begins in the Golden Gate and continues along Dluga street surrounded by Renaissance-style buildings and monuments such as the Town Hall, the Neptune Fountain, and the Artus Court. We will visit an amber carving workshop with a presentation of amber carving. Passing Zielona Brama (Green Gate) we reach the Motlawa River with the Crane Gate, one of the most famous symbols of the city. We finish the panoramic tour of the city in the Gothic St Mary’s Church, the largest brick church in the world. After the walk we will stop at the Christmas Market in this city that is usually held in the historic building of Zbrojownia (Arms Store), near the Carbon Square (Targ Węglowy). Speaking of a Baltic port and world capital of amber, our recommendation is to take advantage and look for souvenirs and gifts with amber as the protagonist. While in Gdansk, you must stop by for a tasting of at least a shot of Goldwasser, a brandy in which small pieces of gold float (real gold). The typical food stalls will serve herring at this time of year, one of the obligatory dishes on the Christmas Eve’s table, or a tasty Baltic fish soup. Overnight in Gdansk.
