You must Visit Poland

Many Beautiful Old Towns

Beauty and Poland aren’t two words most people put in the same sentence, but that’s a mistake. Despite considerable destruction during WWII, some old towns survived, and others have been rebuilt in much the same way as they existed before the war.

Most travelers think of only Krakow. Granted, the old town of Krakow is as beautiful as it is overrun with tourists. The old town of Warsaw is very underrated. While most (or all) of it had to be rebuilt after the war, it is still a beautiful and interesting place to explore, filled with restaurants, pubs, churches, and monuments.

Hiking in the Tatra Mountains

Poland has amazing hiking. Who knew? An (optimistic) two hour bus ride south of Krakow brings you to Zakopane, and alpine town that wouldn’t be out of place in Austria or Switzerland, but happens to be in the Polish Tatra Mountains. The views from popular Mt Giewont are stunning if you can deal with the crowds coming up the cable car on busy summer weekends. Try going in the shoulder season for a quieter experience.

Oh yeah, and the Food

Pierogies. What more do you need? You like savory? Done! You want something sweet? No problem. How can such a simple dish be so delicious? For the real connoisseur, get to Krakow for the annual Pierogi Festival every August.

And lastly, the Beaches!

Yes, you read that right. Beaches. In Poland. Granted, the Baltic Sea can be a bit nippy, but those Poles are hardy people. The beach at Sopot, near Gdansk, was beautiful and busy.
