1. Warsaw, the capital of Poland.


Warsaw is known to many people not for its size or beauty, but for its indestructible existence. It was a phoenix that had risen many times from the ashes of war. Heavily damaged during Swedish and Prussian occupation in 1655–56, then attacked again in 1794, when Russian troops massacred the inhabitants of the right-bank suburb of Praga.
After the Warsaw Uprising of 1944 failed, the city was leveled under the orders of Adolf Hitler; the suburbs on the left bank, controlled by the Germans, was recorded as a genocide of the decade; buildings were turned into rubble from burning flames and dynamite.

However, in 1945, the people of Warsaw (Varsovian) returned and built their homeland. Now Warsaw continues to serve as the capital, the center of Poland’s social, political, economic, scientific and cultural life. During your visit to Poland with AV Travel, you’ll see many historic streets, buildings and churches that have been restored to their original shape. https://avtravel.com/tour/eastern-europe/

2. Jasna Gora

The Jasna Gora Monastery is the spiritual “capital” of Poland, it has become a pilgrimage destination for more than 10 million people over the years just to visit and pray in front of the sacred painting “Black Madonna ”.

According to legend, this image was attributed to Saint Luke, one of the twelve apostles, who “painted a portrait of the Virgin Mary on the pine table where she had her meals.” Saint Helena, the queen mother of Emperor Constantine found the portrait during a visit to the Holy Land in Israel and brought it back to Constantinople in the fourth century. The painting was passed down as a royal heirloom until it came into the possession of Saint Ladislaus in the 15th century.

3. Auschwitz Birkenau Concentration Camp

Auschwitz Birkenau Concentration Camp

Happy Feet lost sleep after visiting Auschwitz Birkenau Concentration Camp, where nearly 2 million Jews died at the hands of the Nazis during World War II! Auschwitz Concentration Camp was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1979. Like many visitors who have come here and probably had seen movies about the Nazi era such as The Pianist, Schindler’s List and museums about genocide, race, but what I witnessed with my own eyes was incomprehensible. The cruelty of the Nazi era made me sick to my stomach for days!
