Visit Poland

Poland offers beautiful views of the Baltic Sea. It has faced challenging times throughout its history, but that has helped the country become one of the strongest members of Europe.

It is a deeply religious nation, which means many of the most important public holidays coincide with the Catholic calendar. Festivals that involve Epiphany, Easter, and Pentecost allow visitors to explore local flavors and customs. Each community tends to have a festival for their patron saint as well, which offers an opportunity to enjoy this culture throughout the year.

The countryside of Poland is relatively untouched compared to other European nations. You’ll find forests, beautiful valleys, and towering mountain ranges to explore. Trails for hiking, cycling, and horseback riding are readily available.

You can even explore the oldest salt mine in the world, which has been in continuous operation since the 13th century. Enjoy some local gingerbread, relax in a Gothic city, or get acquainted with the Renaissance. The choice is up to you.

The history of Poland has created a unique culture of museums and galleries that let visitors know even more about the people of this great nation and its landscapes. You’ll find infamous locations to explore, such as Auschwitz, along with the unspoiled beauty of a woodland like Bialowieza National Park.

Poland really is a one-of-a-kind experience.

From the world heritage sites in Warsaw and Cracow to the hard-working cities of Gdansk and Poznan, Poland offers something for everyone to enjoy. Wide parks, open seas, and inviting mountains are mixed with the castles and cathedrals to create a memorable holiday. Make your way here and you will not be disappointed.
