Experience Our Poland

Our customized, private insider tours of Poland feature our favorite places and experiences in the country.

Did you know...

That the heart of famed Polish composer and pianist Frederic Chopin is interred in a pillar inside the Holy Cross Church in Warsaw?

Family history...

Artisans of Leisure can arrange meetings with expert genealogists to trace family history, as well as visits to specific places related to family heritage.

Jewish touring...

Our expert guides can help illuminate the long, complex history of Jews in Poland at the Museum of the History of Polish Jews and Jewish Cemetery in Warsaw, ancient synagogues in the Kazimierz neighborhood of Krakow, and Holocaust-related sites such as Auschwitz and Majdanek.

Unusual attraction...

In the underground caverns of UNESCO-listed Wieliczka Salt Mine is a unique chapel hewn from salt, including salt floors, salt walls carved with biblical scenes and chandeliers hung with salt crystals.

Culinary specialties...

A few of our favorite Polish flavors are fresh berries in the summer and mushrooms in the autumn; zurek, a sour rye soup; oscypek, a smoked sheep's milk cheese; and smalec, bacon fat that's spread on fresh bread.

Catholic touring...

Poland has several important Catholic destinations, including the birthplace of Pope John Paul II in Katowice, the Jasna Gora Monastery in Czestochowa and the Kalwaria Zebrzydowska pilgrimage park outside Krakow.

Giants of Polish science...

Trace the lives and pioneering work of Marie Curie in Warsaw and Nicolaus Copernicus in Torun.

Traditional wooden architecture...

We can include visits to centuries-old wooden churches in southern Poland that are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites for their medieval architecture, wood joinery and painted interiors. Seeing the log houses around Zakopane is another popular option.

For history buffs...

We can arrange in-depth touring of sites related to the history of World War II in Warsaw, Gdansk (Danzig) and many other destinations.

Solidarity...

Artisans of Leisure can arrange tours of the Gdansk Shipyards, where the Solidarity movement originated in 1980 and eventually helped usher Poland out of the Communist era.

For art lovers...

Enjoy a private tour of Krakow's many memorable art treasures, such as Leonardo da Vinci's Lady with an Ermine at the Czartoryski Museum and church interiors painted in vibrant designs by Young Poland (Art Nouveau) artists.

Historic hotels...

In Warsaw, the Hotel Le Regina is in a building that once housed the U.S. Embassy, and the Hotel Bristol is a century-old landmark next to the Presidential Palace.

For active travelers...

The rugged landscapes of the Tatra Mountains form a dramatic backdrop to the log houses dotting the atmospheric town of Zakopane. It's an ideal destination for outdoor activities and learning about the unique traditions of the local people.

Relax...

In the English-style gardens of Lazienki Park in Warsaw or at a cafe on the Market Square in Krakow.
