Day 1 Wroclaw – The “Polish Venice”
Wroclaw (in Polish: Wrocław) – one of the biggest and most beautiful Polish cities. Wroclaw is located on 12 islands that are connected by 220 bridges, that is why the city is often called the “Polish Venice”. It has the fourth largest number of bridges (and footbridges) in Europe locating it just behind Amsterdam, Venice and St. Petersburg. One of the attractions is the ride on the nineteenth century historic tram.
Overnight in Wojanów Palace which is a modern hotel situated in the buildings of a historical romantic manorial residency.
Day 2 Villages in Rudawy Janowickie and Sokoliki
The Rudawski Landscape Park is situated in the southern part of Lower Silesia, on the border of the Western and Central Sudetes mountains, part of an ancient range. The Rudawy Janowickie landscape features a number of picturesque river valleys (such as the Janówka or Hutniczy Potok), scattered rock formations like Sokoliki (Falcon Stones), numerous hills, steep slopes, and gorgeous forested terrain with abundant streams. They also provide fantastic views over the beautiful Giant Mountains and the Kamienna Góra Valley, especially from Skalnik. Throughout the Rudawy Janowickie there are many interesting cycle tracks, differing in landscape and level of technical difficulty. Some cyclists might choose to test their abilities on one of the so-called ‘walls of tears’, running from Janowice Wielkie via Mniszków to Polana Mniszkowska. Sokoliki is the most beautiful vantage point of Rudawy Janowickie. Among many atracttions we visit the Palace and the Museum Lomnica (in Polish: Łomnica).
