1. Krakow: Princes Czartoryski Museum Ticket and Guided Tour
Visit one of Poland’s oldest museums, The Princes Czartoryski Museum in Krakow, on this guided tour. Discover its permanent exhibitions, among which the most well-known painting is the 500-year-old 'Lady with an Ermine' by Leonardo da Vinci. Meet your guide and head over to the 'Lady with an Ermine' portrait. Learn the story of how it came to be a part of Krakow's history when, in 1800, Prince Adam Jerzy Czartoryski bought it as a present for his mother, Queen Isabella. Appreciate the painting’s many qualities and da Vinci’s high standard of artistry in a live setting. Some things to definitely observe include the eyes, the shading on the neck which give the woman a 3D appearance, the blue of her dress, the pose, and more elements you can only experience first-hand. Uncover some of the mystery and intrigue around the backstory of the lady in the portrait, an educated noblewoman called Cecilia Gallerani. Apart from this highlight of the Museum, explore the equally immersive permanent exhibitions like the 'Landscape with the Good Samaritan' painting by Rembrandt van Rijn and other paintings, sculptures, and applied arts. Explore a huge collection of souvenirs showcasing Polish history.
