Poland, one of the most budget-friendly places in Europe, is a country steeped in medieval castles and
folklore, with royal palaces and parks where legends and pagan myths vie
with wartime stories. Our tour of castles and palaces starts with a
visit to Wawel Hill in Krakow, the ancient capital, and then to Warsaw,
the current capital, where we stop at Wilanow Palace. And then onto the
largest castle built in the world – the Malbork Castle.
