AT: the Museum of Sydney
ON: Wednesday 3 March

Poland and the Baltic capitals

Poland is a centuries-old European treasure with a rich and diversified culture, un-spoilt
nature and monuments from a glorious past. This talk, and upcoming international tour, will
take you beyond the usual tourist locations and introduce you to the heart of Polish culture.




Our Baltic experience will focus on three cities: Vilnius in Lithuania, a sophisticated city that
has preserved an impressive collection of Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and classical
buildings and its medieval layout; Riga in Latvia, known as the capital of Art Nouveau
architecture;Tallinn in Estonia, with its dramatic medieval wall that encircles restored houses
from the same period as well as 19th-century houses, a Tsarist palace and modern tower
blocks and finish in Helsinki.




Join Barbara Konkolowicz for this illustrated lecture that gives a personal insight into the art,
culture and history of Poland and shows the highlights of the Baltic countries.




This talk is a precursor to Barbara's upcoming Poland and the Baltic Tour.

The three week all inclusive tour departs on 19 August, 2010

The complete tour itinerary will be available on the night.
