Poland & Slovakia Tour
19th - 26th October 2014 (8 days)

Poland and Slovakia lie at the heart of Eastern Europe and are both enjoying successful economic growth in contrast to much of the rest of Europe.  The farms that were once part of the state-run economy under Communism, have developed into a mix of large co-operative and private operations, although there remain many small farms supporting individual families. 

 

Our tour will include a diverse selection of both countries as you travel north to south taking in Warsaw, Krakow, the High Tatras mountains, Polona and Bratislava.
