Dear Travelers:
We invite you to explore the rich heritage of Central Europe, including Poland, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia, with local expert Dr. Christopher Skutela, this fall! Magnificent castles, stunning river gorges and cosmopolitan cities awaitDr. Christopher Skutela you!

Our journey will begin in Warsaw, the capital of Poland. Today the city is vibrant and dynamic, with more than a quarter of its area occupied by parks. We’ll visit Marie Curie’s home in New Town, and also the UNESCO World Heritage Old Town, including the Royal Road and Royal Castle.

We’ll then travel south to Krakow to marvel at Ojcow National Park en route to the Eagles Nests castles, perched on limestone cliffs. In Krakow, we’ll find the legendary den of the dragon at Wawel Castle, and visit one of Europe’s largest market squares. We’ll visit the thriving Jewish Quarter and the Auschwitz-Birkenau memorial the next day.

Near Zakopane, we’ll float leisurely through the Dunajec Gorge on traditional rafts that will give you a unique perspective of the stunning countryside.

We’ll enjoy a Highlander feast, sampling traditional food and entertainment of the Goral people of Southern Poland. We’ll also explore the awe-inspiring Tatra Mountains by cable car to the top of Kasprowy Wierch.

In Slovakia we’ll see the majestic Orava Castle and historic Bratislava on the Danube River.

We’ll marvel at the geologically magnificent Punkva Cave and Macocha Gorge in the Czech Republic, a wonderland of stalagmites & stalactites.

Our journey concludes in Prague, the very heart of Europe. We’ll stroll along the Charles Bridge and delight in the charms of this world-renowned city.

Please join us for a very special look at Central Europe with a superb leader.

We hope you will join us!
