While this central European country isn’t usually front of mind when planning a Euro jaunt, it should be: affordable, diverse, and beautiful – with friendly locals to boot – there’s a lot to love.
Whether you’re interested in the great outdoors, visiting historical sites, sampling the diverse cuisine, or photographing the unique architecture, Poland offers plenty to the first time (and fifth time) visitor.
Poland is home to plenty of UNESCO World Heritage Sites – Kraków’s historical centre, Auschwitz, and the Wieliczka Salt Mine to name a few. And of course, in December, like it’s neighbouring Germany, comes alive with enchanting Christmas markets, skating rinks and the notable tradition of eating the 12 dishes that make up a Polish Christmas supper – one dish for each month to symbolise abundance in the coming year.
