Hotel and restaurant in town. On the shores of the Baltic Sea, the port city of Gdynia is in full resurgence. Within one of its magnificent parks, Quadrille sits in a small 18th-century palace to which the Górski family has brought new life. They imagined a decor that would surpass the ordinary, inspired by the world of Alice in Wonderland. The tunnel that connects the two sections of the hotel invites guests to pass from one side of the mirror to the other, where the rooms, each bearing the name of a famous writer and his novel, are found. Their choice for originality has not diminished the quality of the service, with the magic of the atmosphere evident in every detail. The restaurant, carried by the enthusiasm of its young chef, invites you to follow the white rabbit into the dunes of the Pomeranian Voivodeship. ... Learn moreless

For the traveller, the name of Gdansk evokes above all the naval shipyards and the trade union Solidarność. It is perhaps here that modern Poland was born. Today Gdansk remains a town of contrasts, between the bustling activity of the port and the gentle atmosphere of the roads dominated by patrician houses. Built in the 17th century, the Golden House has survived all the wars and still displays the richness of Dantzig, the former Prussian town.
To get to know Warsaw’s many facets, you have to climb to the 30th floor of the Palace of Culture and Science, an imposing tower of 230m. Vestiges of the Stalinist era contrast with high-tech buildings and baroque edifices. Built between 1952 and 1955, the sky scraper today houses two museums, three theatres, a multiplex cinema, a swimming pool, bars and restaurants. As much a crossroads as a tower…
Hotel and restaurant in town. Krakow was once the capital of Poland and it still has many impressive monuments from this period, such as the Royal Castle overlooking the Wawel Hill, where the country’s monarchs lived. Copernicus Hotel is located on Kanonicza, the city’s oldest street. For centuries, this building was a part of the cathedral chapel and hosted the intellectual and financial elite of Krakow. It owes its name to the famous Polish astronomer Nicolas Copernicus, who was one of the guests of the house. He, too, must have admired the precious polychrome paintings and inscriptions dating from 1500 and, in the evening, the flaming sunsets that seem to set the city alight. After visiting the city, relax at the Copernicus Spa by L’Occitane with a range of custom treatments. ... Learn moreless
A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1978, Krakow has withstood time, destruction and invasions: just follow the "Royal Road" into the historic city centre to see for yourself. From Matejki Square to Wawel Castle and Cathedral via the Main Market Square (Rynek Główny), the Royal Road was once taken by monarchs visiting the city.
Symbols of Nazi horror, the former Auschwitz and Birkenau camps west of Krakow are much more than a museum, they stand as a necessary memorial reminding us that over a million Jews were exterminated here. Take a deeply moving tour through the various camp buildings, the ruins of the crematoria and the gas chambers, where you will discover photographs taken at the time and some belongings of the deportees.
