Poland is a country that is becoming more and more popular with tourists every year. They come here to look for interesting monuments, wild nature, as well as valued cuisine. Currently, the most frequently visited are cities such as Kraków, Warsaw, Gdańsk and Wrocław, as well as the Białowieża Forest, the Baltic Sea coast and Masuria.
The capital of Poland, Warsaw, suffered heavily as a result of World War II, but many of the most valuable buildings were successfully reconstructed. Tourists are drawn here by the picturesque Old Town, the 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 the most famous abroad. Krakow impresses with its wonderfully preserved Old Town and Wawel Castle, as well as the former Jewish district, Kazimierz, which today is full of bars and art studios. Wrocław is a city whose architecture has been strongly influenced by the years of belonging to Germany. In turn, Gdańsk, in addition to historic buildings, also offers unique museums, the Museum of the Second World War and the European Solidarity Center.
Monuments can be admired not only in cities. Many of them are located in smaller towns. These include, first of all, locks. The most famous of them is the castle in Malbork, entered on the UNESCO list. The castles of the Eagles' Nests Trail in the Kraków-Częstochowa Jura are also very popular.
Poland is known for its beautiful nature and picturesque landscapes. The most famous is the Białowieża Primeval Forest, entered on the UNESCO World Heritage 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 practice water sports or rest in 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 and Karkonosze Mountains.
