Luxury Gdansk and Krakow tour

Gdansk river and city centre private tour to Poland

I was addressed by Lady June Chichester once a director of Covent Garden Opera in London to organize an eventful tour of Gdansk and Krakow.

Guests arrived on location by a private plane of Mr. Donald Gordon (In 2004, Gordon gave the Royal Opera House and Wales Millennium Centre a collective donation of £20 million. This was one of the largest single private donations ever made to the arts in the UK).

I booked several rooms in one of the top boutique hotels in Gdansk. This stunning city with its ancient harborside and multicultural history has a lot to offer. To top it all off we ventured into a small, enchanting amber atelier where we adored the craftsmanship of the local jewelry artist.

The famous and aged castle of Malbork erected by the infamous order of the Teutonic Knights was the destination for the next day. After the amazing journey through history, we headed to a restaurant where we enjoyed the local traditional cuisine of which the Polish delicacy known as ogorek kiszony (a kind of pickled cucumbers) made an absolute furor among my guests. Great deal of ogorki kiszone were purchased to the delight of the restaurants’ owner to be consumed as a treat with champagne the following evening.

The next point in our itinerary was a trip to Oliwa where in local cathedral we had a delight of listening to Roccoco pipe organ concert. From there we drove to Sopot where we had a lovely constitutional while taking in the fresh and wholesome Baltic breeze on its reputed pier.

Once everybody developed a proper appetite, we headed straight o my uncle’s famous fish joint (Bar Przystan) where I had my uncle set out a special fancy cutlery and china crockery instead of usual disposable one.

The next day we flew to Krakow where apart from the city sightseeing, I managed to arrange an exclusive tour of one of the oldest edifices in town the Collegium Maius where through pulling a few strings we were allowed to enter the normally closed to public halls.

In one of these rooms hidden from public viewing Lord Chichester graciously tickled the ivories of a grand piano that once belonged to Frederic Chopin.
