Your Essential Travel Guide To Poland
Discover Things To Do In Poland
The most popular areas to visit are the capital, Warsaw, and Krakow, Poland’s second city. Outside of the city, Poland has lush, green landscape including forests and lakes - all of which are suitable for outdoor activities. As well as its medieval history, Poland was also caught right in the middle of the Second World War, something which it still bears the scars of to this day.
East of Germany, Poland’s clime resembles the continental European climate in the south. Summers are usually warm and sunny, while winters often see the landscape beneath a beautiful blanket of snow.
Why visit Poland?
The warm Polish welcome is legendary and with literally hundreds of bars, restaurants and cafes to choose from in Krakow, Gdansk and Warsaw, you’re sure to find somewhere to enjoy a drink and take in the friendly atmosphere.
Just 60km from Krakow lies the site of Auschwitz, the infamous Nazi concentration camp. The site has now become a symbol of terror and genocide, as well as a stark reminder of the horrors of the holocaust and the Second World War. A large number of tourists visit Auschwitz and the neighbouring Birkenau camp each year and entry after 3pm is free.
