Enduring a rough historical period over the last century, Poland has reshaped itself and has become one of the main destinations for anyone travelling through Europe.
Between the white-winters which are amazing during the Christmas period, through to the scorching hot European summer, we’ll show you why there’s no place quite like Poland.
CK Browar, Address: 7 Podwale Street, Krakow
There is no denying that that Polish are famous for their delicious pierogi and cold-meat dishes which form the basis of their traditional meals. For genuine Polish food, you can’t go past a tasty Borscht soup which is hearty and healthy and the same time!
Visit C.K Browar for a traditional Polish pub-meal, with their world famous beer to wash down your food.
Krzywy Domek, ul. Haffnera 6, 81-717 Sopot
Influenced by the heavy Gothic influence at the time, Polish Architecture is among one of the oldest styles in the world. Houses are still very much influenced by the Gothic themes of the 13-14th century, and are easily characterised by their high upper reaches and timber-framing on doors and walls alike.
For a little modern architecture instead, visit the world-famous crooked house in Sopot. It’s bound to give you an interesting Insta-snap!
Czersk Castle, 05-530 Gora Kalwaria, ul. Ks. Sajny
Escape to the Polish countryside if you want a real slice of paradise! Life in the country has remained the same as it was hundreds of years ago, and many families are looking towards this for their ideal rural vacation.
There’s plenty to do here without succumbing to your phone or computer – horseback riding, mountain-climbing and canoeing are all great options if you love the great outdoors.
If you find yourself travelling to Poland during the summer seasons of June through to early September, then you definitely don’t want to miss the white sand beaches of Sopot. Bathe in the Baltic sea, or simply catch some rays and enjoy the warm weather at a nearby café.
This county is easily accessible by private car or taxi, and railway line if you prefer to save a bit of shrapnel.
Chimera, UL. Podwale 29, Warsaw
Known as the birthplace of vodka, the Polish definitely know how to whip-up a drink (or two!). Grab a delicious cocktail at Chimera in Warsaw, (ask for the vodka-orange), and dance the night away to jazz tunes played by the local DJ’s.
