Places worth visiting


We have a few natural regions - the mountains (Carpathian and Sudeten Mountains) in the south, the plains in the middle, the lake district (Mazury) in the north-east and the Baltic Sea coast in the north. Every region and city offers unique places to visit. The list below gives an idea of how varied they are:

Warsaw - visiting our capital city you should not miss a chance to visit the Old Town with its unforgettable Marketplace and the Royal Castle (both completely destroyed during the World War II and carefully reconstructed afterwards). Łazienki Park, a big romantic 18th century park close to the city centre and summer residence of the last Polish king Stanisław August Poniatowski, the Palace on the Water, the amphitheatre, and the Monument to Chopin where the piano concerts are held in summer

Cracow - former capital of Poland (11-17th century) and one of the most beautiful cities. You can visit the Wawel Cathedral and Castle with the legendary dragon, the Jagiellonian University, St.Mary’s Church in the Market Square (the largest mediaeval square in Europe) and the Jewish Kazimierz district.

Wieliczka - a medieval (and still working) salt mine with underground galleries, halls with works of art sculpted in salt and lakes. The biggest underground chapel has room for 500 people.

Zakopane, Karpacz, Krynica, Szczyrk or Wisła are famous places to go skiing in winter and for walking, climbing and hiking in summer. The Tatra Mountains - the only mountains of the Alpine type in this part of Europe. The whole Tatra range is a part of the National Forest. Climbing Kasprowy Wierch Giewont, Rysy (the highest peak of the Polish Tatra Mountains- 2499m), trips to Czarny Staw or Morskie Oko (lakes) are very popular.

Krakowsko-Częstochowska Upland - with the Eagles Nest’s Trail, region of calcareous rocks with picturesque ruins of medieval castles.

Mazury - the land of a thousand lakes and old forests. If you like sailing this is the place for you. In Poland we have over 900 lakes with a surface area of more than 1 hectare each.

Wroclaw - the capital of Lower Silesia, is one of the oldest and most beautiful cities in Poland. Situated at the foot of the Sudety Moutains, upon the Odra River and cut through by its numerous tributaries and canals, it is an exceptional city of 12 islands and 112 bridges.
