fascinating tour that awaits you. (WR)

This city is the 700-year-old political and cultural capital
of Poland. A sightseeing tour here includes a drive

Palace of Science and Culture (known as a “wedding
cake”), the Saxon Gardens, the Tomb of the Unknown
Soldier, the Monument to the Heroes of the Warsaw
Ghetto, and the Barbican. Then we embark on a
walking tour of the Old Town passing the Old Market
Square, and St. John’s Cathedral. Next, we visit a
chocolate factory, for a tour and for some sampling.
You can taste some hot chocolate, cocoa beans and

chance to concoct your very own chocolate bar and
take it home as a souvenir. The rest of the day is free. (B)
