If you’re looking for a holiday destination with history, culture, vibrant cities and natural landscapes that vary from beaches to lakes to mountains then Poland is the perfect place for you. Full of stories, scenery and character, it showcases a fascinating crossover between Eastern and Western Europe, and it also offers huge diversity, so there is really something for everyone here. The natural first stop for a holiday in Poland? Warsaw. Brimming with landmarks of its wartime heritage, it is a fascinating and atmospheric city, but it also has museums, shops and nightlife on offer. And of course there are other wonderful cities to visit – Krakow is a magical place with beautiful architecture and a bustling Old Town, and Gdansk, with its picturesque harbourside and cobbled streets, is well worth a trip.
But a holiday in Poland is not just about historic cities, it’s about natural beauty. In the north you will find the Baltic Coast, where there are sunny sandy beaches galore, and the stunning Mazury region, where the lakes and rivers are an endless playground for kayakers and wild swimmers. In the south you have the world-famous Tatra Mountains, where you can hike in the summer, ski in the winter and wildlife spot all year round. And of course we can never forget the heartbreaking memorial and museum at Auschwitz-Birkenau. A holiday in Poland can be one of many layers, all of which make for beautiful and unforgettable memories.
