Flavor of Poland

Wroclaw, in a historic nutshell, was from the very beginning of its existence an object of desire. It's not surprising, thus, that throughout its past it was passed from hand to hand - from Czech to Polish to Hungarian, Austrian and German rule. The Walloons of Belgium settled here, alongside Jews, Italians and Ruthenians, their different nationalities, religions and cultures integrating with one another.

Poznan, Gniezno

This may be one the most sentimental stops along our route! In this episode we visit the very birthplace of Poland - it is in the Greater Poland region and the cities of Poznań and Gniezno that the early events of the Polish State took place. Countless monuments, some reaching as far back as the 10th century, tell the story of the creation of Poland. Its earliest rulers and historical figures lay buried in the crypts of some of the nation's first cathedrals found here in this region.
