Warsaw
Poland is a proud country bearing both the tears and triumphs of its turbulent history. There is plenty to discover in the resilient capital, Warsaw including the Palace of Culture and the Chopin Memorial.

Berlin
Berlin, the cosmopolitan German capital, may have experienced some of history’s most radical changes, but today it is widely known for its knowledge, tolerance, museums, palaces, street art, architecture, and energetic approach to the arts and culture. Nearby is beautiful Potsdam, former residence of the Prussian kings.

Prague
A major cultural centre, the Czech capital, Prague is also one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
