Poland

Posted on May 9th, 2013.

From the Carpathian Mountains in the south to the Baltic Sea in the north, with lake districts, forests and a desert in between, Poland has it all. For the hiker, pathways criss-cross the country, through ancient forests, mountain passes and alongside vast rivers. The lake districts of the north east offer kayaking and canoeing, in pristine countryside.

 

Gdansk, sits in the north, a Polish port, displaying the influences of centuries of visiting merchants who helped mould this unique city. Wander between the red-brick churches and elegant buildings, along the cobbled streets, visiting museums, shops and the distinctive bars or cafes. Gdansk is diverse, exciting and when you’re ready a great place from which to explore the Baltic coast or other parts of Poland. Our Highlights of Poland tour takes you across the country from Gdansk in the north to Krakow in the south.

 

After over 750 years, Krakow, the former royal capital city, has a beautifully preserved Gothic centre with fine examples of Baroque, Renaissance and Art Nouveau architecture. Despite the obvious attraction of the Old Town, don’t miss Wawel Castle, the renaissance residence of past Polish rulers and now home to the National Art Collection. The hushed synagogues, found in the Jewish quarter, remind visitors of the more recent and tragic history of this captivating city. In spite of the massive destruction Poland experienced during World War II the country has miraculously managed to preserve much of its cultural wealth from the magnificent to the tragic. Today Krakow is a lively, cosmopolitan city offering cafes, restaurants, bars and clubs.

 

 

There are currently 14 World Heritage Sites in Poland from the historic centres of Krakow, Warsaw and the medieval town of Torun, or the Wieliczka Salt Mine, to Bialowieza forest and finally the concentration camps of Auschwitz Birkenau
