Pretty Poland

There are few countries in Europe that bear a history as rich as Poland’s. Stroll into its heart and you will find enchanting medieval cities, fairytale castles and untouched wilderness…

Poland is surprisingly big with plenty to explore. Lying at the crossroads between East and West, it is a modern, rapidly developing European nation that has been successful in retaining the magic of a bygone era. Rich history and culture, rolling plains, pristine beaches, emerald lakes, wild mountains, endless forests with rich flora and fauna, cascading waterfalls, beautiful national parks that are home to lynx, wolves and golden eagles, medieval towns, baroque castles, vibrant cities, delicious local cuisine and friendly people make it an ideal holiday destination.

So where does one start? Warsaw and Krakow are two of its biggest cities and a must see. While Krakow has the looks, the brains and the vanity that comes with it, Warsaw has the dynamism, the commitment and the scars to prove it. Wroclaw, Poznan and Lodz are happening cities and each has its own devotees. Here’s an overview of the best places to visit in Poland.
