The famous Rynek Glowny square is the lively centre of the town. Shop for Polish souvenirs in Sukiennice (the Cloth Hall), or visit an exhibit of nineteenth-century Polish paintings. Another highlight is a visit to Wawel Castle. Take a look inside the ancient treasury and climb to the top of the Sandomierska tower. Mingle with the hip and trendy in the Kazimierz district. Admire the colourful street art and grab delicious snacks at one of the fun food trucks.

Exploring nature in Poland

If you love long walks and hikes in pristine nature, Poland is the place for you! The country is home to 23 national parks. The most famous is Bialowieza National Park, known around the world as the last large primeval forest in Europe. You may even encounter bison on your walk! Another popular destination is Biebrza National Park. The Biebrza river runs through this park, creating an environment with marshes and swamps that attract numerous bird species. Bird watchers should be sure to pack their binoculars! If you are looking for adventure, book a rafting trip on the Dunajec river. This river runs through Pieniny, forming the border between Poland and Slovakia. From the water you can marvel at the impressive steep cliffs, the picturesque Dunajec gorge and the Tri Koruny mountain top. Meaning the 'Three Crowns’, this 982-metre peak is the highest point in the National Park.

A visit to Gdansk

This ancient city in northern Poland is also known as the Pearl of the Baltic. Gdansk has an impressive history as a rich and important port city. You will find this reflected in the beautiful ornate historic buildings. The Oliwa Cathedral, St. Catherine's Church and various city gates, like the Brama Wyżynna transform this port city into an open-air museum. For a unique perspective, rent a canoe. As you paddle through the canals, you will see the city from a very different angle.
