Tour prepared specially for military fans will lead you through different places connected with World War II (and Cold War) in the Eastern Europe
The itinerary connect three countries that played very important role during the 2nd World War:
Germany – we start the tour in Berlin that is a living museum of WWII and the Cold War. You will enjoy a full day sightseeing focused on 20th century history in Berlin (Nazi era monuments, war monuments, Holocaust monuments, division of the town during the Cold War, Berlin Wall…). The next day drive to Potsdam, a little town some 25km from Berlin, where the Treaty of Potsdam was signed in 1945. Here you will also visit the Schloss Sanssouci and the Glienicker Brücke – „spy bridge“ – where the spies used to be exchanged between the USA and the USSR.
Poland – visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial, touring Krakow city centre (the Royal Route, St. Mary’s Church…) and its Jewish Quarter + Wawel Castle. You can also drive to see the Wieliczka Salt Mine (UNESCO).
Slovakia – visit Dukla pass, a place of one of the heaviest battles of WWII in Central Europe, located in the very north eastern part of the country. Visit the local memorial there and some of the military cemeteries around Stropkov. Continue driving to Bratislava and enroute visit Strecno Castle – a strategic spot in the Fatra mountains and site of heavy fighting during WWII (memorial to the French partisanas who fought here alongside Slovaks), or Banska Bystrica – the centre of the Slovak National Uprising in 1944 (memorial Museum of the Slovak National Uprising). Depart home from Bratislava or nearby Vienna Airport.
