Krakow: Lancut Castle & Rzeszow Tour

This fantastic tour allows you to see amazing Lancut Castle and city of Rzeszow during only one day from Krakow. Lancut Castle is renowned for its striking architectural design, splendid interior decor, and an exclusive assortment of horse-drawn vehicles. Initially constructed in the latter part of the 16th century, the castle underwent transformations into a palace-like residence. It is also celebrated as the historic home of two prominent Polish lineages: initially the Lubomirski family until 1816, followed by the Potocki family until 1944. Presently, the castle is encircled by a scenic park designed in the English style, dotted with various pavilions and agricultural structures. Despite being less famous, Rzeszów offers a captivating tourist experience. This hidden gem in southeastern Poland is rich in history and culture.
