Day 5

Polish mountains or Czestochowa

Decide by yourself how you would like to spend this day. You can choose between one of two equally interesting, but different complimentary tour options. Both are private, so you’ll travel with in comfort by car with a professional and personal English -speaking driver/guide
1st Option:  ZAKOPANE
Zakopane is the main Polish mountain resort at the foot of the majestic Tatra mountain range (over 2,000 metres above sea level). A car tour around Zakopane, admiring the exquisite and very characteristic local wooden architecture and making a funicular railway trip up to one of the most beautiful places in the Tatras: Mt. Gubalówka, facing the astonishing beauty of Zakopane. During the day, you will also have enough time to walk down Krupówki Street for souvenir-hunting.
2nd Option:  CZESTOCHOWA
We set out on a journey to the south of Poland and visit Częstochowa, its spiritual heart. The monastery is famous for the miraculous painting of the Black Madonna and you will be taken on a guided tour of the grounds by a Pauline monk.

Day 6

The end or continuation

Depending on your flight/ train schedule, our driver will take you either to the airport in Kraków or to the railway station. If you plan to continue to Warsaw or to other destinations in Poland or Central Europe to extend your tour, we will be glad to assist with further arrangements.
