Beautiful Kraków is a delight to explore. Discover its merchant past in Rynek Gówny, Europe’s largest market plaza, and the 16th-century Cloth Hall, where traders once hawked spices, textiles and goods from around the world. See St. Mary’s Basilica and its exquisite wooden altar, and listen to the song played by a lone trumpeter from its highest tower. Visit Kraków’s historic Jewish Quarter and Oskar Schindler’s factory. If you choose, learn more about Poland’s tragic wartime history at Auschwitz; as an alternative, join an excursion to a nearby model post-war communist community. Just outside the city, descend into the amazing Wieliczka Salt Mine. Take a walk in Ojcow National Park to see the unusual limestone rock formations and visit the 14th-century Pieskowa Skala Castle. Take a scenic train ride to Warsaw to explore the capital city. Enjoy seven nights’ first-class accommodations and an extensive meal plan, featuring wine with dinner.
