    Poland and Ukraine Tours & Travel | September 2021

    Date:  6 September to 2 October 2021

    Poland’s borders have changed many times over the years. The original state started in 966AD when a Slavic tribe called the Polans, established rule. In 1939 Poland was invaded by Nazi Germany and suffered greatly when millions were killed. After the war, Poland remained a communist Eastern Block state with close ties to Russia. The capital of Warsaw is becoming a metropolitan city with a global culture. Ukraine has been left off the traveller’s list for too long. There are many reasons to visit including its beautiful cities and villages, and rich culture of writers, painters, song, dance, food, architecture and religion.
