The most beautiful little town near Warsaw!


It is one of the highlights in the vicinity of Warsaw as one of the most beautifully located little towns in Poland. Its greatest prosperity dates back 16th and the first half of the 17th century, due to the trade in grain conducted along the Vistula. It became an economic backwater after that trade declined, and this freeze in economic development enabled the town to preserve its Renaissance look. Since the 19th century it has become a popular holiday destination, attracting artists and summer residents since 14th century town was inhabited by Jews. Until WWII Jewish community grew up to 1400 people which were half of the city's population. By the end of 1942 there were no more Jews living in the town as all of them were gathered in the ghetto and later sent for extermination in Bełżec Extermination Camp. During this tour we will visit 16th century Parish Church, ruins of medieval castle and tower, pictures streets and squares of old town, granaries, synagogue and wooden butcher place, Jewish cemetery.

A Recent Review of this tour

An excellent tour! Monika is enthusiastic, very knowledgeable and most pleasant. Something special we noticed about Monika's tour was the depth and breadth of her historical knowledge - she is able to speak of Renaissance events to recent history in a seamless fashion. We also appreciated the comfort of the van we were driven in, and the safe courteous skills of our driver, who was excellent! This was a very high quality tour, and when we return to Warsaw, we'll be asking for Monika!
