This was the day to head back to Warsaw.
We were picked up by Zenon at 9 am for our car trip to Warsaw. It was a great time in Krakow but it was sadly time to leave. The ride to Warsaw was very nice and we traveled the scenic roads and the country side was beautiful. After a little more than 4 hours we arrived in Warsaw. Zenon was gracious enough to give us a tour around Warsaw. We toured Wilanow Palace.
Wilanów Palace is a royal palace located in the Wilanów district, Warsaw. Wilanów Palace survived Poland’s partitions and both World Wars, and so serves as a reminder of the culture of the Polish state as it was before the misfortunes of the 18th century. It is one of Poland’s most important monuments. The Palace’s museum, established in 1805, is a repository of the country’s royal and artistic heritage.
The palace and park in Wilanów hosts cultural events and concerts, including Summer Royal Concerts in the Rose Garden and the International Summer Early Music Academy. The palace, together with other elements of Warsaw Old Town, is one of Poland’s official national Historic Monuments, as designated September 16,1994. Its listing is maintained by the National Heritage Board of Poland.
After a quick ride around Warsaw past the Royal Castle and through downtown, Zenon took us to the Hampton Inn for our last night in Poland.
We expressed our gratitude to Zenon for his and PolishOrigins Tour group for a magnificent tour and a great experience in Poland. We did not have any issues, hiccups or complaints about any part of our trip. We had a great dinner and breakfast at the newly opened Hampton Inn and then it was time to pack up and prepare for our trip home the next day.
