Introducing Poland

Travelers to Poland will discover chocolate box towns surrounded by towering mountains and elegant town squares veiled by church structures. The Wieliczka Salt Mines and the Kraków Old Town are two of Poland’s 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Poland offers countless possibilities to learn more about the amazing history of the nation, which was left behind as a result of its participation in both world wars and numerous prior revolutions. The pace slows down dramatically outside of Poland’s busy cities, and stunning views of nature become the norm. The Tatra Mountains, Poland’s mountainous region, is located south of Kraków, while the small town of Zakopane, located at its base, impresses with hilly trails and a stunning lake.

Top Locations in Poland

Schindler's Factory, Krakow
Oskar Schindler's enamel and metal factory is now the site of two museums. The Historical Museum of the City of Krakow has opened a branch in the building that formerly housed Schindler's office and the factory floor, thanks to Spielberg's film Schindler's List. A portion of the structure has been transformed into the Museum of Contemporary Art.
Crooked Forest, Gryfino
The Crooked Forest, which lies close to the hamlet of Gryfino, is an amazing natural miracle that cannot be explained. Several pine trees stand alone in this location, each bending northward and growing at a 90-degree angle at the base. The pine trees were first planted in this location in the 1930s, but it took roughly 10 years for the trunks to begin to exhibit their distinctive bend.
Wawel Royal Castle, Kraków
Wawel is a castle with a diverse architectural style; it was built with Renaissance and Baroque components. The castle has always played a significant role in Polish history and was one of the first locations in the country to be designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Today it is a significant art museum, concentrating mostly on paintings and curatorial activity. King Sigismund I the Old, who resided at the castle in the 16th century, was an ardent art collector.
Morskie Oko Lake, Tatra National Park
The lake, which is tucked away in the Tatra National Park and surrounded by Swiss pines and high mountains, is a popular spot for tourists. It can be reached on foot. All through the year, the lake's colour alters, shifting from a dark blue to a lighter turquoise tone.
