Through the recently aired BBC programme 'The Hariy Bikers Northern Exposure' we get re-accquainted with our colourful neighbours from the Baltics. The Hairy Bikers serve up a dish full of the splendour of Baltic culture, history, architecture and last but not least, the traditional Baltic cuisine. The programme shows us all there is to know about comfort food from across the Baltic Sea region. Poland, with the coastal region toward the Baltic sea, offers great traditional dishes with fresh fish and sea food, homemade pierogi and vodka, alongside wonderfully coloured salads and pickled condiments drawing on both Russian and Baltic influences.
There are many places to visit in Poland that are very interesting from many perspectives and we highly recommend exploring Krakow Poland, Gdansk and Warsaw which are placed all worth a visit - and even reasonably priced as well, which is not always the case. We also highly recommend Zakopane in the Tatra Mountains for either summer or winter holidays. You get the feel for the true authentic holiday. Journalist Mr. Gimlette travelled with us and you can read his blog on http://www.baltictravelcompany.com/blog/index.php/poland/the-guardian-and-financial-times-article-on-zakopane-by-john-gimlette. Do contact us for more information.
If you are interested in getting acquainted with Poland and some of its famous people, we recommend the Scenic Poland tour, which is increasingly becoming popular among our clients. This guided tour will introduce you to the home of Frederic Chopin, Krzysztof Penderecki, Lech Walesa and Holy Father John Paul II.
Our Highlights of Poland tour takes you across the country from Gdansk in the north via Warsaw in the middle to Krakow in the south, don't miss out Sopot Poland either. Its a great way to visit a variety of regions and cities of Poland.
