<strong>Krakow</strong><br />

During World War II, <strong>Krakow</strong> was the only major Polish<br />

city to escape devastation, leaving the beautiful<br />

architecture of its Old Town intact. On your guided<br />

sightseeing tour of this former capital, see Wawel<br />

Cathedral, where Polish kings were crowned and<br />

Pope John Paul II once served as archbishop. Stroll<br />

through Glowny Square, passing beautiful Sukiennice<br />

Cloth Hall and the Jagiellonian University. Then,<br />

take a somber visit to the concentration camps at<br />

Auschwitz and Birkenau. Now the site of a memorial<br />

museum, you can view a film about the horror of<br />

Auschwitz and Hitler’s Third Reich here. Before you<br />

leave, observe a moment of remembrance for the six<br />

million victims of the Holocaust.<br />

Academy Square<br />

<strong>Berlin</strong>, Germany<br />

<strong>Prague</strong><br />

Encounter the legendary beauty of <strong>Prague</strong> on your<br />

tour of the former capital of the Holy Roman Empire.<br />

Located on the Vltava River, <strong>Prague</strong> gracefully balances<br />

the classical features of old Europe with a<br />

lively, Bohemian spirit. Pass the concert hall where<br />

Mozart conducted the premiere of Don Giovanni.<br />

Walk the quaint, cobbled streets of the Mala Strana<br />

and visit the 13th-century Stare Mesto (Old Town)<br />

and Market Square. Here you’ll see the famous 15thcentury<br />

astronomical clock. From St. Vitus Cathedral<br />

to the Baroque statues of the Charles Bridge, you’ll<br />

explore the celebrated art and architecture of the City<br />

of One Hundred Spires.<br />

Wawel Castle<br />

<strong>Krakow</strong>, Poland<br />

<strong>Berlin</strong><br />

Poised at the cutting edge of European culture, this<br />

German capital has been transformed since the <strong>Berlin</strong><br />

Wall fell in 1989. On your tour, visit the Checkpoint<br />

Charlie museum, named after the checkpoint station<br />

that once guarded the border between East and<br />

West Germany. Here you can see escape cars, hot<br />

air balloons and even a submarine—all used in risky<br />

border crossings. Your walking tour will take you past<br />

cafés, restaurants and embassies along Unter den<br />

Linden, <strong>Berlin</strong>’s most elegant boulevard. Continue to<br />

the imposing Reichstag building, the historical seat of<br />

Germany’s parliament, and head to the massive glass<br />

dome that overlooks the cityscape.<br />
