More so than many countries Poland has endured periods of oppression and internal struggle, but with EU membership money has begun to flow into the country. On a holiday to Poland you will find vast wildernesses, breathtaking mountains, unspoilt forests peppered with lakes and windswept sand dunes on the Baltic coast. Across this huge expanse you will encounter towns and cities rich in history both glorious and tragic.
Lovers of old architecture will be charmed by the well-preserved gems of Krakow, Wroclaw and Gdansk, with enough cobbled streets, medieval churches, castles, cafes and museums to lose yourself for days in. Poland is also a proud brewing nation with many establishments housing their own microbreweries, so beer enthusiasts are extremely well-catered for.
Admire the painstaking reconstruction of Warsaw's Old Town which contrasts so vividly with the Stalinist architecture. Take in the treasures of Krakow whose imposing castle peers down on a maze of medieval streets and follow the struggles of Solidarity amidst the rebuilt Renaissance delights of Gdansk. On your holidays to Poland, don't miss enchanting Wroclaw, spread over twelve islands with over 100 bridges spanning the network of canals, full of dramatic Gothic architecture.
Poland holidays can also be about the great outdoors; head into the mountains and the winter sport resort of Zakopane where you can follow the walking trails through the nearby Tatra National Park. Delve underground into the cavernous chambers of a salt mine, stop at Jasna Gora Monastery, home to the miraculous icon of the Black Madonna, and contemplate the suffering of those who passed through Auschwitz.
