The places of interest that are worth seeing during a bus tour to Poland are,
obviously, the castles. One of the most famous castles in Poland is the Royal
Castle in Warsaw. It is located on Castle Square and it is a reconstruction of
an architectural ensemble, which was destroyed during the World War II. Today
it is one of the most famous historical museums in the country.
Continuing the theme of castles, we cannotbut mention the Royal Castle in
Krakow - it is the very placewhere every tour begins. Interesting fact: this
royal castle is no less important for Poland than the Kremlin for Russia. The
only difference is that the Kremlin has the status of the main symbols of
statehood, but the castle in Krakow lost
it when the capital was moved from Krakow to Warsaw.
Pride of Poland is theMalbork Castle, recognized as the largest Gothic castle
in Europe (with an area of 20 hectares). The castle is located in the same
city, near the border between Poland and Kaliningrad. It is known that the
castle was built in the 13th century by the Knights of the Teutonic Order. In
German it sounds like MalborkMarienburg.
Wroclaw is another city that is popular among tourists. It is here where the
famous Wroclaw Zoo is located, recognized as the largest in Poland. The zoo was
founded in 1865 - back in the days when Wroclaw belonged to Prussia. In
addition to lions, hippos, crocodiles, monkeys, rare butterflies, visitors can
see many buildings that have been preserved since the 19th century.
If you are a fan of religious sites, we recommend you to visit Palace of
Bishops of Poland. The history of the palace is directly connected with the
history of the life of Karl Wojtyla - Pope Paul II. The priest lived here in
the 60s-70s, and continued coming to the palace even after his election as
Pope. In the courtyard of the palace there is a monument dedicated to the
famous Polish priest.
