Holidays in Poland
The area and getting around
Poland is located in the northeast of Europe, washed by the Baltic sea to the north and sharing a land border with seven countries. Its main attractions are Krakow and Auschwitz, both located in the far south of the country. The capital Warsaw is right in the centre of the country, and the fabulous port town of Gdansk is on the northern coast. Most travellers choose to explore Poland moving north to south through these three points.Mountains galore in southern Poland
While much of Poland is flat, the far south of the country is very different, being home to the rugged Tatra mountains, which make up the most scenic section of the Carpathian mountain range. The region attracts hikers in the summer and skiers in the winter, centred around the resort town of Zakopane and the increasingly popular town of Szczyrk. Easily accessible from the city of Krakow, mountainous Poland should be a mandatory addition to any tourist itinerary
Travellers and activities
Everywhere you go in Poland, you are walking in a living museum. Historically it is most famous for its role in WW2, with Auschwitz at the centre of attention, where you can see for yourself the staggering depth of human evil. Schindler’s Museum in Krakow tells the tale of everyday life as lived under occupation, and the tale of the underground resistance. For Poland’s ancient history, head to the north of the country and visit Malbork Castle, which dates back to 1274. It is a medieval fortress that is also the largest brick castle in the world!Poland for hikers
The Tatra Mountains in southern Poland offers some of the best hiking in Europe, with the added bonus of being much less busy than other popular mountainous areas in the continent. We recommend a hike through the Strążyska Valley, a fairy-tale land with moraine lakes, babbling brooks and powerful cascades on a backdrop of stunning, rugged mountains and giant firs.
Vodka was invented in Poland, where for many centuries it was originally used as a medicine!
Top 5 travel tips in Poland
Previously a salt mine, Wieliczka is now home to an underground city carved from salt and rock, even housing a cathedral. Breathtakingly beautiful, this is one of Poland’s most inimitable attractions. Make sure to bring your coat – the average temperature in the mine is minus 14-16 degrees!2. Explore Poland’s ‘Krakow of the North’
The birthplace of the medieval astronomer and mathematician, Nicolaus Copernicus, and a UNESCO Site, Torun was untouched by WW2 and its old town is one of the most exquisite in Europe. Don’t miss the Leaning Tower to the south of the old town!3. Take a stroll around the ‘Polish Sahara’
Straggling the Baltic Coast of northern Poland, Slowinski National Park is a prodigious natural habitat that is best known for its huge shifting sand dunes and white sandy beaches. Revered by the locals who make a pilgrimage to the park every year, it makes for an easy day trip from Gdansk.4. Visit Europe’s last remaining primeval forest
Located in the far east of the country on the border with Belarus, Bialowieza National Park is a wonderful place to soothe the soul, special beyond words. A knowledgeable guide will take you into the innermost sanctuary of the park. Just watch out for the bison!5. Krakow of course
Of course, what would a trip to Poland be without spending a couple of days in Krakow?! With its vast central square, medieval cathedrals, Renaissance castle, Baroque churches, amazing variety of bars, and restaurants and the enchanting atmosphere that permeates the city, your trip to the architectural marvel of Krakow will earn you memories to last a lifetime.
