Poland--where else to go

Jump to last reply

In May or June 2018, I plan to visit Poland--mainly Krakow, Warsaw, and Gdansk and environs. I have visited all three cities and have seen much that they have to offer.

My primary interests are WWII and the Cold War. In the Gdansk area, I want to see Malbork castle, Westerplatte, the Katyn forest museum, and the WWII museum.

In Warsaw, I want to visit the Museum of the History of Polish Jews again and see the Polish Army museum, the Powazki Military Cemetery, especially to visit the grave of Marian Rejewski, who was so important to British codebreaking in WWII.

In Krakow, I want to take the Communist tour and the WWII tour. I'd like to visit Nova Huta, to see the Gestapo Hq, and Schindler's factory. I'd also like to visit the Remuh cemetery and also see the Remuh synagogue or some other synagogues. I've visited Warsaw twice recently, so I've seen quite a lot there.

If you can think of other WWII or Cold War sites that I haven't mentioned, please tell me. I'll probably spend four or five weeks on this trip. Since I'm getting so old and decrepit, I will probably visit one main sight per day.
