See the highlights of Warsaw with me: local guide born in this city. Warsaw is a green and clean town, so you will be taken to Lazienki Park (18th century) where you can stroll and admire palaces and pavilions hidden in thick greenery. Drive along Royal Route, almost completely rebuilt after WWII to its previous historical design. Walk in Warsaw Old Town, also rebuilt to its historical style and put on the UNESCO cultural heritage list as the only place not original but reconstructed. See the house where Madame Curie was born, and where Chopin lived. We will also visit what was once the ghetto area.
With me you will see great contrasts of pre-war Warsaw, districts kept in socialistic-realistic style and recently constructed modern downtown called sometimes Warsaw Manhattan.
After Warsaw city tour and after lunch time we will drive to the suburbs of Warsaw to visit the interior of Wilanow Palace built in the 17th century by king Sobieski who defeated Turks in the battle of Vienna. Later belonging to aristocrat families, the palace became one of the very first museums in Poland.
This splendid Baroque palace (often called Polish Versailles) survived all wars, so you can still see its original interiors and stroll in its charming park in English and Italian style.
Instead of visiting the Palace you have the option to visit Royal Castle, which although rebuilt in '70, shows a lot of miraculously saved original paintings, furniture and objects of art. This is where Polish kings lived, where sessions of Parliament took place, and where now you can see Rembrandt's paintings and other precious masterpieces.
- Car transportation
- Explanation in English.
If you want to visit both museums, it can be done; additional hour of guide's service costs 50$.
Also if your party consists of more than 4 persons, I can arrange another, more suitable mean of transportation, then the price will be changed, being the subject of mutual agreement.
