1. Wroclaw: Giant Mountains & Valley of Palaces Day Tour
On this full-day excursion you’ll visit the Karkonosze Mountains, also known as the Giant Mountains, and the fascinating Valley of Palaces and Gardens and unique 19th-century mansions. Most of the sites are situated at the foot of the largest mountain range in the Sudetes. The scenic route takes you from Wrocław to the extraordinary 14th-century Siedlecin Tower House. Admire one of the most outstanding examples of medieval art: the 14th-century polychromes that portray scenes from the Arthurian legends of Lancelot. The next stop is a late baroque palace in Staniszow where you'll sample Echt Stonsdorfer (traditional herb liqueur) from the village. From here, travel to Karpacz, one of the most popular mountain resorts, situated directly at the foot of the Karkonosze range. Here you'll visit the Vang Stave church, considered to be the oldest wooden church in Poland and a unique relic of Nordic Romanesque architecture dating back to the 12th century. It was originally built in Norway and was moved to Silesia by a Prussian king in 19th century.
