More about Poland

Top destinations to visit in Poland

There are only a few countries in the world that stand on the stalwart pillars of the past with a fruitful promise for the future. Poland is one of them. It stands on the ashes of WWII and holds the key to its marvelous regal past in the form of castles and palaces.

 

If you want to conquer the beauty of this country, here are 4 destinations that you should check out.

1.   Warsaw

Warsaw is a perfect name for a city that was left in ruins in WWII. Most of its buildings were demolished or completely wiped out by Nazi forces. However, the city is resilient and it started a massive construction spree after the war ended. Now, Warsaw holds the biggest collection of paintings of Poland in the National Museum.

 

It also boasts some of the most sought after sites, including the Lazienki Palace that is surrounded by more than 76 hectares of gardens and forest.

2.   Tatra Mountains

For hikers and mountain lovers, these mountains bear trails of several kilometers. Forming a natural barrier between Poland and its neighboring country, Slovakia, Tatra mountains are known for their exquisite beauty and serene environment.

 

Besides rolling hills and lush green pastures, there are more than 500 caves dotted here and there. The biggest among those is the Wielka Sniezna, which is 23 kilometers.

 

3.   Krakow

Krakow (plan Krakow itineraries) came into existence in the 7th century and it still stands. The city is home to a staggering number of parks, including those that were established during the 19th century. Unlike other cities that were almost devasted by the Nazi forces, this one retained its signature architecture and you can see that in the Wavek Castle and the Old Jewish Quarter, formally called Kazimierz.

 

There are 28 museums in the city that you must visit to indulge in the glorious past of Poland.

4.   Bialowieza Forest Reserve

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Bialowieza Forest Reserve once spanned on the whole of Europe. Now, only limited to the areas between Poland and Belarus, the forest is a sight to behold. There are plenty of bird species to bird-watch, but the main attraction are the bison. After saying hello to these, you can visit the Museum of Wooden Architecture and the village of Bialowieza.

 

Of course, there are many other sites and cities to visit, but these 4 cities should stay at the top of your itineraries. Do not forget to respect the culture and enjoy your stay in Poland.
