Perhaps best known for its increasingly popular ancient towns and cities rich in history, Poland also in fact surprises many visitors as place to visit if you’re looking for breathtaking landscapes peppered with hilltop castles and stunning lakes. For a Poland holiday with a twist, combine a city break in Krakow with a trip into the mountains where well-marked walking trails criss-cross the Tatras, or venture to Poland’s Baltic Coast to discover a landscape of windswept sand dunes.

Lovers of architecture rarely fail to be taken in by the charms of the well-preserved centres of Krakow, Wroclaw and Gdansk, with each home to enough cobbled streets, Medieval churches, imposing castles, quaint cafes and fascinating museums with which to fill several days.

Having navigated a fascinating, if at times also tragic, path through the recent few centuries, Poland is a fascinating destination for travellers with an interest in culture and history. Discover Jasna Gora Monastery, home to the miraculous icon of the Black Madonna, or visit the State Museum of Auschwitz-Birkenau whilst based in Krakow, for a sobering insight into the most notorious Nazi concentration camp.

Poland's cities offer a multitude of options for short breaks, but if you have the time there's actually loads to do and see out of the towns. The Wielicza Salt Mine, not far from Krakow, might not initially sound like a holiday must - until you discover that it houses an entire underground cathedral carved from the rock salt by miners. Here salt chandeliers adorn the ceilings and intricate carvings decorate the walls.

Fergus's Tips
1
Nature-lovers should head for the Tatra Mountains, the highest range of the Carpathian Mountains.
2
Set aside a day to visit the notorious concentration camp complex, the uncomfortable but important Auschwitz.
3
Visit the spendid neo-classical palace, Lazienki Residence, the summer residence of King Stanislaw.
