Private Warsaw Tour: Raised from the ashes
This is an extended option of the Warsaw city tour.
After visiting Lazienki park, where you can admire palaces and pavilions, then driving along Royal Route, walking in the Old Town - a site on the UNESCO cultural heritage list, seeing the houses where Madame Curie was born and where Chopin lived, we will stop in one of Old Town small cafés for lunch where you can savor Polish typical food, then visit Royal Castle, which although rebuilt in '70s, shows a lot of miraculously saved original paintings, furniture and objects of art. This is where Polish kings lived, where sessions of Parliament took place, and where now you can see Rembrandt's paintings and other precious masterpieces.
After meeting you at your hotel, we shall drive along historical part of the city: Royal Route, where you can see former palaces, some turned into embasies, we stop at the monument to Frederic Chopin and former White House from XVIII c. , view Polish parliament, enter Lazienki Park with summer residence of our last king (picturesque Palace on Water) and other palaces and pavilions. Come back to the town to cross Vistula River to see National Stadium at Prague site, old streets remembered from famous films, then to see Unknown Soldier's Tomb, where changing the guards takes place every hour, Great Theatre (opera and ballet house), then former Jewish ghetto quarter with its memorials, and finish at Old Town (the UNESCO site) painstakingly rebuilt after WWII.
