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.
