• Our journey starts in Dresden at 10:00 am, our first destination is Wroclaw
Wroclaw is one of the largest, most beautiful and oldest cities in Poland, which offers all the prerequisites for a trendy destination: perfectly preserved medieval buildings and modern districts. The city has an age-old tradition and was first mentioned around the year 900, the region of Silesia, in which Breslau (Wroclaw) is located, was found at Tacitus in 98 AD.
Our walk begins on the medieval market square (Polish: Rynek). Many events take place here throughout the year. We visit the historic town hall, the adjoining churches and the restored town houses, which tell of a living history of the city. During our excursion we take a look at another specialty of Wroclaw - the approx. 230 bronze dwarfs scattered around the city. These little residents appeared there in the 1980s under the motto "Humor is the best weapon against oppression" and served as a symbol of protest against the communist state.
• Overnight in Wroclaw
• Breakfast; Visit to the "Panorama of Racławice" and the National Museum
We start the 2nd day with a visit to the "Racławice Panorama". This unique Polish work of art contains a panorama picture with a total area of 1,710 m². It depicts the victory of the Polish over the Russian army in Racławice on April 4, 1794. The picture has long been a tourist highlight of the city of Lviv (today western Ukraine). In 1946 it was dismantled under strict secrecy and shipped to Breslau. For political reasons, it could only be shown to the public again from 1985 and is now one of the most famous sights in the city.
Near the panorama is the Wroclaw National Museum, whose collection includes around 120,000 objects from the Middle Ages to the present day. Overall, the National Museum is one of the largest collections of historical objects in the country, in which i.a. many paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, handicrafts and photographs can be viewed. We get an introduction to the history of the country and its art history and we also get to know outstanding personalities.
In the afternoon you have free time to explore the city and other sights on your own. We recommend i.a. the "Galeria Neonów" or the Botanical Garden. Of course, you can also enjoy the city with a leisurely stroll and visit some of the local shops.
• Overnight in Wroclaw

• Breakfast and drive to the port city of Gdansk via Poznan
Poznan is the capital of the Greater Poland Voivodeship and the fifth largest city in Poland. It offers an interesting mix of history, an exciting cultural life, remarkable architecture, lively parks and a colorful variety of cafés and restaurants. As in many historical cities, all of Poznan's main attractions are concentrated in the center. And since the history of the city spans about 10 centuries, Poznan offers its guests a fairly extensive collection of historical monuments. During a walk we take a look at the most important of them. We start with the Altmarkt, on which the beautiful Renaissance town hall is located. It was built in 1551, the clock tower is famous for its two moving billy goat statues. Our walk then takes us to the former imperial palace. This is the last and youngest royal residence in Europe and was built for Wilhelm II at the beginning of the 20th century. In the summer we also have the unique opportunity to visit the Martinshörnchen Museum, where we can see how the most famous Polish biscuits are made. This is a kind of croissant and is one of the products with a protected designation of origin in the EU, so this specialty can only be baked in Wielkopolska according to a precise recipe.

On the 4th day of the trip we stroll over the cobblestones of the cozy Hanseatic city of Gdansk. We visit the old town with its flair of the old Hanseatic League, enjoy its historical and at the same time sophisticated ambience, which is often rounded off with classical music by street musicians. Many splendid merchants' houses await us, one of the largest brick churches north of the Alps - the Marienkirche - and the "right town hall". From here we have a wonderful view over the whole city. In many historical buildings we find cozy cafés and restaurants in which we can enjoy the impressions of this enchanting city and try various fish specialties of this region. Another specialty of the city is the salty air and the sound of the Baltic Sea surf, which gives Gdansk its special charm.
• Overnight in Gdansk

• Breakfast, excursion in Marienburg and drive to Mikolajki (Masuria)
The Marienburg (Polish: Zamek w Malborku) in the city of Malbork is a medieval castle of the Teutonic Order built in the 13th century on the Nogat River, an estuary of the Vistula. To this day, the Marienburg is the largest brick building in Europe and is also considered the largest brick Gothic work. This castle complex was the seat of the Grand Masters of the Teutonic Order from 1309 to 1457 and is also considered the most powerful fortress of the 14th century in Europe. In addition to its impressive appearance, Marienburg is also closely linked to the spread of Christianity in Eastern Europe, especially the Christianization of the Baltic peoples.
Heavily destroyed in World War II, it was first class restored by Polish specialists and is home to historical exhibitions and an amber museum that are well worth seeing. Our personal opinion: One of the best museum complexes in Europe and a must for anyone interested in history!

We drive to the capital of Poland, where we encounter a diverse architecture that reflects the long and turbulent history of the city. During World War II, Warsaw lost almost three quarters of its entire architectural heritage. Thanks to its citizens, over the decades the old town has literally been revived from the ashes. Today Warsaw is one of the most modern and beautiful capitals in Europe. During our city tour we get to know the history of the reconstruction of the city and visit the historical center. On the way, our guide tells many of the capital's exciting legends, especially the story of the mermaid, one of the most important symbols of Warsaw.

Of course, we make appropriate stops in restaurants and cafes in the capital.
