Let's make a plan to get out of town and Meetup!!
This trip is an AMAZING Eastern European journey.
It has all the best elements.
The basic thumbnails are St Petersburg, Moscow, Warsaw, Krakow and Wieliczka.
We will be visiting at the top of summer - a time called "White Nights" The sun never really sets. It's amazing!!!
Add to this:
We will be taking Night Trains from St Petersburg to Moscow and then from Moscow to Warsaw. This brings in the romance train travel of a bygone era.
We start in St Petersburg. A city dripping with history.
First of all . . .there is the Hermitage. And there is the rest of the amazing city too (rsvp or message us to find out city options)
After our time in St Petersburg we travel by night train to Moscow.
In Moscow we will have two full days to soak in the city with guided tours. (rsvp or message us to find out city specifics)
After our fill of Moscow we make our way by Night Train to Warsaw. If you don't know much about Warsaw . . . you will, after we get there.
It is truly a historic city. (rsvp or message us to find out city options)
We continue to Krakow. This may very well be the gem of the entire trip.
From Krakow we do take a day trip to Wieliczka. This is NOT to be missed.
