Poland is a historic destination that few tourists have discovered yet. However, it's full to overflowing with pretty towns and fascinating nature parks (the last remaining primary forest in Europe, dunes, etc.). There's lots more to do in Poland than simply remembrance tourism!
You're going to need some advice when choosing the stages of your trip. To help you, the community of travellers at Evaneos has provided their views on the country's various destinations. They'll be useful when putting together your itinerary.
Fans of history should start by visiting Warsaw and Krakow, the second largest city in Poland, over which debate is constantly raging: is it more interesting than the capital? After having completed your duty of remembrance in the sadly renowned camp of Auschwitz and spent time shivering in the Wieliczka salt mine, you can set your bearings for Tatras, the region of the lakes or the Baltic coast.
If you're looking for good hikes, opt for Tatras national park in the mountainous south, and try the impressive eagle path and other treks starting from the Zakopane ski station.
Keen to just relax and go swimming in all-natural surroundings? Head to the Baltic coast, where you can rest around Gdańsk. Malbork fortress is a must-see in this area. Fans of aquatic sports should head to the lakes region to give sailing a try. Finally, to the East of Poland, the forest of Bialowieza is home to a large amount of the bison in Europe.
There are lots of places to discover in Poland, even if they're not that well-known. We'll let you explore the Evaneos site to learn even more about this surprising country.
