Poland as a fascinating holiday destination attracts more and more visitors every year. And this is not surprising at all, because the diversity of the landscape is reflected in the beautiful white sandy beaches on the Pomeranian coast of the East Sea in the north, and in the snow-covered winter sports centers of the Tatras, Carpathians with Beskids and Giant Mountains in the south.

Thi amazing country can offer you a wide range of destinations, from surprisingly beautiful cities like Krakow, Gdansk and Zamosc to the Bialowieza Forest National Park and the Masurian Lakes in the north. Poland has a rich cultural heritage in almost all areas.

Warsaw is one of the cities with the most tragic history in the world. It was conquered and demolished several times, and its population went through horrible horrors. That is why Warsaw is often called the "City of the Phoenix", which always rises from the ashes. It was first mentioned in the thirteenth century, and it received the status of a city in 1334. Until 1596, it was the center of the Masovian Voivodeship, and since then it has become the capital of Poland. The greatest credit for that goes to the then King Sigismund, who transferred the capital from Krakow.

Who is looking for untouched nature rich in landscape should visit Kaschubische Schweiz or Masuria in the former East Prussia. Those who are more interested in art and culture will visit Danzig, Warsaw or Breslau. Several large rivers flow through Poland: the Vistula, the Odra, the Warta ... Poland has about 9,300 lakes, mostly in the northeastern part of the country.

Precisely for this reason, with the development of the entire tourist infrastructure, there has been an enormous growth in the offer, whose range includes beautiful villas, holiday homes and apartments on the Polish East Coast, lakes rich in Kashubian or Masurian plateaus, and in Silesia.

Polish cuisine is rich and characteristic, including traditional dishes such as pieroga, gołąbki, borscht and bigos.

A country of this size is so large that it can be visited all year round, but most people visit it mostly when the weather is warmer, from May to October. The peak of the tourist season is in July and August, when schools and universities are on vacation and most employees take their vacations. If you want to avoid the crowds, the best time to tour Poland would be in late spring and early summer.

All this makes Poland an interesting and fascinating holiday destination with a lot of content for fans of active and quality holidays.
