Two capitals of Poland - Warsaw and Krakow City Break
Warsaw/Warszawa - the capital of Poland with approx. 1.8 million inhabitants. A city that was almost completely destroyed during the 2nd World War and rebuilt after the war with great self-sacrifice. The history of Judaism is directly connected with the war history of Warsaw. The Germans built the largest ghetto in occupied Europe in Warsaw, whose destruction and struggle are still alive in the city's consciousness today.
Cracow/Krakow - the old capital of Poland, its intellectual and cultural center, is generally considered one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. It is also called the "city of kings and saints". It is home to the oldest Polish university. A treasure chest of works of art and architectural monuments.
