Trip plan

This is an example of Trip Plan. It is not automatic. I need time to prepare it for you. It does not cover all attractions in Warsaw & surroundings but the ones which match a profile made up by myself. If your profile is similar and you arrange similar logistics, you have the ready Trip Plan for Warsaw without taking any action and for free! Photos for each day of Trip Plan are not always available. Number of attractions & cities and their quality in your Trip Plans can be different than in this example!

Useful tips

 

  Alternative to one day trip to Cracow is: Gdansk, Torun
  or Poznan.

 

  You can visit Warsaw for one day while visiting Gdansk
  or Poznan !

 

  A day trip from Warsaw to Kazimierz Dolny nad Wisla
  and Janowiec Castle is also an option. It is 1,5 hour
       drive from Warsaw.
