The Polish American Numismatic Society (PANS) is organizing a grand European journey that will take participants through Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Russia. The trip will introduce participants to the rich numismatic and cultural heritage of Eastern Europe and Russia. The tour, titled “PANS Numismatic Educational Tour of Hands Across The Borders of Eastern Europe and Russia,” will take place Sept. 9 to 25. PANS president Les Rosik promises it to be a “once in a lifetime” opportunity.

The trip includes a full schedule of numismatic sites, including a visit to the Numismatic Cabinet at the Hutten Czapski Money Museum in Krakow, Poland; the Royal Castle numismatic cabinet in Warsaw; the Warsaw National Museum’s numismatic department; the Warsaw Mint Museum; the Money Museum of the Bank of Lithuania in Vilnius, Lithuania; the National Museum in Riga, Latvia; the Bank of Estonia Museum in Tallinn, Estonia; the Hermitage Museum’s numismatic department in Saint Petersburg, Russia; and the Pushkin State Museum in Moscow; along with various non-numismatic stops and tours.

The price of the tour, which starts in Krakow, Poland, is $3,700. While the price includes the tour and tickets, the flight back from Moscow to Warsaw, and hotels along with breakfast and dinner, the price does not include airfare to Warsaw.
