Polish + Unesco

Polish + UNESCO Heritage

This course includes 20 lessons of group tuition in a closed group plus a variety of pre- and post course trips around the country tracing the UNESCO Heritage.


This may include such excursions like:

3 Days in Lower Silesia (Dolny Śląsk) including: Wrocław, with its beautiful city centre, city hall, islands and hundreds of bridges. It's a host city to the newest Polish UNESCO heritage site: The Centennial Hall. The Hall landmark in the history of reinforced concrete architecture, was erected in 1911-1913. The Centennial Hall is a pioneering work of modern engineering and architecture, which exhibits an important interchange of influences in the early 20th century. The Churches of Peace in Jawor and Świdnica, the largest timber-framed religious buildings in Europe, were built in the former Silesia in the mid-17th century, amid the religious strife that followed the Peace of Westphalia. Another place to be visited is Park Mużakowski, a landscaped park of 559.9 ha astride the Neisse River and the border between Poland and Germany. Blending seamlessly with the surrounding farmed landscape, the park pioneered new approaches to exterior design and influenced the development of landscape architecture in Europe and America.


3 days long excursion to the south, which will include the most significant historical sites of Poland. First at all we will see the historical centre of the second Polish capital: Kraków. The 13th-century merchants' town has Europe's largest market square and numerous historical houses, palaces and churches with their magnificent interiors. Further evidence of the town's fascinating history is provided by the remnants of the 14th-century fortifications and the medieval site of Kazimierz with its ancient synagogues in the southern part of town, Jagellonian University and the Gothic cathedral where the kings of Poland were buried. We will also see another 3 UNESCO Heritage sites which are situated no longer then an hour drive from the city borders: Wieliczka Salt Mine, German Nazi Concentration and Extermination Camp Auschwitz Birkenau, the Mannerist Architectural and Park Landscape Complex, Pilgrimage Park Kalwaria Zebrzy-dowska.

2 ½ days trip to the Northern part of Poland including another two important UNESCO sites plus the famous TriCity. The trip includes: Toruń which owes its origins to the Teutonic Order, which built a castle there in the mid-13th century as a base for the conquest and evangelization of Prussia. A visit in the Castle of the Teutonic Order in Malbork is planned as well. This 13th-century fortified monastery belonging to the Teutonic Order was substantially enlarged and embellished after 1309, when the seat of the Grand Master moved here from Venice.

As we are based in Warsaw, which Old Town is also listed by UNESCO on the World Heritage List – we will have planty of opportunities to see the live of the capital and it's best what can be seen during a short stay: historical monuments, beautiful parks, excellent night life and much more!

Minimum length – 10/11 days (depending on arrival/departure places and times). This option includes 3 days in Silesia trip, 5-6 days long language course in Warsaw and a 3-days long trip to Kraków and Southern Poland. Additional prolongation of 7-8 days is possible. In such case the TriCity trip will take place on weekend in between the tuition days and the Kraków trip at the end of the stay.

This programme is prepared for closed & organized groups and can be tailor made for individual needs of the group. Some proposals cannot be organized at all dates and need to be confirmed. The additional trips/activities can be removed from the programme or added a la carte according to the group's needs.
