There is free time built into the schedule of the conference so that you can explore Warsaw. We encourage you to make plans with new friends and visit places not included in the group tour. Before you arrive at the conference, we will give you a packet of information on interesting sites and maps, and we will do our best to communicate these opportunities even before you arrive via Facebook and email. However, it is always good to do your own research before the trip and scope out the places you want to see, the restaurants where you want to eat, etc. This way you can make sure you experience all you intended for your trip!
There will also be a private guided tour of Warsaw’s famous sights and history scheduled for the conference. This city has incredible Jewish history, and our guided tour will take the time to explain important places to remember. All other entrance fees are at your expense. Please account for this in your financial planning. Again, there are many places to eat, explore, and shop at reasonable prices throughout Warsaw.
We recommend exploring the Old Town, the POLIN Jewish History Museum, Mila 18 Bunker, the remains of the Warsaw ghetto walls, and tasting delicious perogies, potato pancakes, and goulash.
