Discover Poland's pivotal cities from sleek Krakow and Warsaw hotels - includes flights, intercity train travel and optional tours

Experience two sides of Poland with a fascinating break and optional tours, which delve into the country’s solemn past and thriving modern culture. You’ll fly into Krakow, where you'll make your own way to the hip Metropolis Design Hotel. Then, you’ll travel by train to the country’s vibrant capital, Warsaw, for a stay at the central Leonardo Royal Hotel Warsaw before flying back to the UK.

Arriving in southern Poland, you can explore Krakow’s well-preserved medieval core and Jewish quarter. Its old town – ringed by Planty Park and remnants of the city’s medieval walls – is centred on the vast Rynek Glowny, Europe’s largest market square that buzzes with hundreds of restaurants, bars and clubs come sundown. In the former Jewish quarter, remnants of synagogues reflect the tragedy of the 20th century, while lively squares and backstreets look to the future.

A short walk from the main square is the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winning Metropolis Design Hotel, which lives up to its name with LED mood lighting, rain showers and hand-picked furniture. Both Polish and International cuisine is available in the colourful terrace restaurant and the garden is a lovely spot to unwind in. From here, you'll have the chance to visit the haunting Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp with a seven-hour tour that includes the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Auschwitz Memorial Museum. You’ll learn about the origins of the camp, its history and the everyday life of its prisoners.

You’ll then get to enjoy a scenic train journey to Warsaw for a stay at the elegant Leonardo Royal Hotel, in one of the capital’s tallest buildings. A three-hour morning tour offers a concise round-up of the must-see sights, taking in the widely varied architecture that reflects the city’s long and turbulent history. From Lazienki Park and Theatre Square, past Belvedere Palace and the Presidential Palace, you’ll take in Gothic churches and neoclassical palaces to Soviet-era blocks and modern skyscrapers. Fascinating museums interpret Warsaw’s complex story, from uplifting Chopin music to the tragedy of the Jewish ghetto.

You’ll end your tour in the heart of the old town at Market Square, with its attractive pastel buildings and open-air cafes facing the iconic Monument of the Warsaw Mermaid. It’s not all about the past though - Warsaw’s restaurant and entertainment scenes are the most vibrant in the country. Take your pick of cuisines from around the world and revel in lively bars and clubs.

Good to know


Your trip includes train travel between Krakow and Warsaw, however it's recommended you plan ahead to arrange independent airport and train station transfers to and from your hotels before you travel.
