NEW! Join us for this presentation of the Old World. We will partake of the wonders of the medieval Market Square alive with Christmas and Santa Claus, and visit the open-air cloth market filled with wonderous gifts. We’ll view a 1,100 year- old church that has sunk up to the 2nd floor, and the Church of the Virgin Mary that was the scene of a deadly competition between two brothers as they vied to build the tallest tower. And no visit to Krakow would be complete without a visit to Wawel Castle where we will encounter the fire-breathing statue of Smok, the Polish dragon, that lived in a cave underneath the castle. As part of our Christmas adventure we will join a gala VIP event, attend a New Year’s Eve concert, and sample the cuisine in one of Krakow’s historic restaurants. And throughout our virtual armchair tour of a Krakow Christmas we will be exploring some of the history and legends that make up the rich tapestry of Polish culture.
