Poland is a country that is becoming more and more popular among tourists every year. They come here to look for interesting monuments, wildlife, and also valued cuisine. Cities such as Kraków, Warsaw, Gdańsk or Wrocław are most frequently visited, as well as the Białowieża Forest, the Baltic Sea coast and Masuria.

The Polish capital, Warsaw suffered greatly as a result of World War II, but a large part of the most valuable buildings were reconstructed. Tourists are attracted here by the picturesque Old Town, palace and park in Wilanów, Łazienki Park and interesting museums, including the Warsaw Uprising Museum and the Copernicus Science Center.

However, other Polish cities are best known abroad. Krakow impresses with the magnificently preserved Old Town and Wawel Castle, as well as the former Jewish quarter, Kazimierz, which today is full of bars and art studios. Wrocław is a city whose architecture has left its mark on Germany a strong mark. In turn, in addition to historic buildings, Gdańsk also offers unique museums, the Museum of the Second World War and the European Solidarity Center.

Sights can be admired not only in cities. Many of them are located in smaller towns. These mainly include castles. The most famous of them is the Teutonic castle in Malbork, entered on the UNESCO list. The castles of the Eagles' Nests Trail built on the rocks in the Kraków-Częstochowa Upland are also very popular.

Poland is known for its beautiful nature and picturesque landscapes. The most famous is the Bialowieza Forest, entered on the UNESCO list, where you can see not only one of the oldest forests in Europe, but also the bison inhabiting it. In the so-called land of 1000 lakes, i.e. in Masuria, you can do water sports or relax on numerous agritourism farms. In the south of the country it is worth visiting the mountains, with the highest Tatras and other picturesque ranges, such as the Pieniny, Bieszczady or Karkonosze.
