Krakow & The Tatra Mountains

7 Day Tour, from £545 per person

Nestled at the foot of the spectacular Tatra Mountains, Zakopane is the winter sports capital of Poland. Plentiful snow and challenging runs make for excellent skiing, while the summer months offer walkers mountain lakes, glacial valleys and stunning waterfalls. Enjoy three days in historic Krakow before taking the bus - a journey of around two and a half hours - to Zakopane. A town full of folklore and bearing the legacy of Poland’s artistic set from the 1930s, this independent alpine getaway in the shadow of the spectacular Tatra peaks can be as relaxing or as active as you choose.

Ask a Regent Poland Specialist for more information.

Imposing hilltop Wawel Castle looms over the city and the ancient Market Square which is at its hub. Saunter through the Jewish District, home to Schindler’s Factory, browse the stalls in the Cloth Hall market and try some heartwarming Polish specialities. After dark choose between highbrow opera, classical music and a puppet show or head for the Market Square jazz clubs, ultra-cool nightclubs in the Kazimierz district or the cosy cellar bars and restaurants which pack the Old Town.

DAY 3
KRAKOW
KRAKOW

Free day in Krakow to explore at leisure or book optional excursions. It is not a difficult decision to make whether to go to Auschwitz when visiting Krakow as you do feel it is your duty to remember and in some small way honour all those lives lost. It is a place that everyone should visit once in their lifetime. Nothing prepares you for the sight of those grim words Arbeit Macht Frei ( "Work makes you free" ) as you make your way silently though these gates trying to imagine how prisoners must have felt years before. Choose to book a private excursion or travel on one of the many well-run coach trips. (B)

Reviews

Ellie Marr took on board our basic requirements and seemed happy to tailor a holiday to suit – offering suggestions but taking note of our wishes. I found this pleasantly unusual and reassuring.

All aspects of the holiday went smoothly. As planned with transfers to/from the Airport and Hotels.

We would like to go to Russia and would certainly consider using Regent Holidays based on our recent experience in Poland.
