Poland Travel Guide

The Republic of Poland is located in Central Europe. It is bordered by Germany to the west; the Czech Republic and Slovakia to the south; Lithuania, Belarus and Ukraine to the east; Russia and the Baltic Sea to the north. The population, over 38.5 million strong, occupy an area of 312,000 square kilometres. Polands landscape is very diversified. The Carpathian and the Sudety Mountains stretch in the south. Lowlands and uplands occupy the central part of the country. The northern part of Poland, comprising Pomeranian and Masurian Lakelands, is gently undulating, relatively well forested and covered by hundreds of lakes; still further to the north are the sandy beaches of the Baltic Sea coast. Polands national emblem is a white eagle with a golden crown on a red background. The national flag is white and red. The people of Poland use the Polish language. Its capital and the largest city is Warsaw, which has a population of over 1,700,000 and is located upon the longest Polish river, the Vistula. The major Polish cities include Cracow, Gdansk, Katowice, Ldz, Poznan, Szczecin, and Wroclaw. Poland is divided administratively into voivodships, counties and communes.

While the countrys cities rapidly modernise, its countryside continues to retain its rustic allure. In Polands southern reaches, dominated by tree–clad mountains, the clich of horse–drawn carts transporting hay from the fields still holds true. Bucolic splendour spreads from the outskirts of urban centres as far as the eye can see, and pockets of primeval forest in the northeast shelter herds of wild bison. The clear waters of the Great Masurian Lakes prove irresistible to sailors and kayakers, and the long, sandy beaches of the Baltic coast provide ample opportunity for summer seaside sojourns.

Culturally, you can visit and/or experience many churches, museums, ceramic and traditional basket–making workshops, castle ruins, rural centers and many more. A journey through the Polish countryside gives you a perfect opportunity to enjoy and absorb local knowledge about its landscape and people.

But dont take our word for it: spend some time here and youll discover a unique land where East meets West and helpings of joy and sorrow have been served up in equal proportions. And youll come away with new–found admiration for this unbreakable country.

Things to do

With 23 national parks and a number of landscape parks spread all over the country, natural attractions are never too far away. Bialowieza National Park, on the Belarus border, is a World Heritage site for it comprises the last remains of the primeval forest that once covered most of Europe. It's the only place where European Bisons still live in the wild. If you're fit and up for adventure, take the dangerous Eagle's Path (Orla Perc) in the Tatra Mountains, where you'll also find Poland's highest peak. Pieninski National Park boasts the stunning Dunajec River Gorge and Karkonoski National Park is home to some fabulous water falls. The mountainous Bieszczady National Park has great hiking opportunities and lots of wild life.

The impressive Gothic Wawel Castle in Krakow may be one of the finest examples when it comes to Poland's castles, but most of the others are located in smaller countryside towns. The large, red brick Malbork castle (in northern Poland) is perhaps the most stunning one in the country, built in 1406 and today the world's biggest brick Gothic castle. The castle of Ksiaz, near Walbrzych is one the best examples in historic Silesia, which also brought forward the now semi–ruined Chojnik castle, located on a hill above the town of Sobieszw and within the Karkonoski National Park. After surviving battles and attacks for centuries, it was destroyed by lightning in 1675 and has been a popular tourist attraction since the 18th century. The picturesque Czocha Castle near Luban originates from 1329. A bit off the beaten track are the ruins of Krzyztopr castle, in a village near Opatow. The Wooden Churches of Southern Lesser Poland are listed by UNESCO as World Heritage, just like the Churches of Peace in Jawor and Swidnica. The Jasna Gra Monastery in Czestochowa and the beautiful, World Heritage listed Kalwaria Zebrzydowska park are famous pilgrimage destinations. The lovely Muskau Park in Leknica, on the German border, has fabulous English gardens and is a UNESCO listing shared with Germany.
