From cultural festivals and medieval market squares to secluded lakes and primeval forests, a hotel break in Poland guarantees unforgettable experiences.
With tourist numbers increasingly annually, Poland offers plenty to discover for nature lovers and culture buffs alike. Whether it’s marvelling at the flora and fauna of the Białowieża National Park, sunbathing on one of the country’s 27 Blue Flag-certified Baltic beaches or exploring the picturesque Masurian Lake District by kayak, a hotel break in Poland is a paradise for fans of the Great Outdoors. Winter sports enthusiasts can head for the ski resort of Zakopane, situated in the foothills of the Tatra Mountains, which is excellent for hiking in the summer. However, Poland also offers many exciting urban destinations such as Kraków, which is famous for its beautifully preserved medieval market square, as well as other attractions such as the gothic Wawel Castle and the vibrant Kazmierz district. Meanwhile Warsaw is an intriguing blend of modern architecture, communist tower blocks and a meticulously reconstructed Old Town, with many excellent museums detailing the city’s tumultuous history. Further west, Wrocław was named European Capital of Culture for 2016, and this vibrant university town is home to many islands, bridges and canals, as well as galleries, theatres and cultural festivals. Other important sights in Poland include the remarkable Wieliczka Salt Mine near Kraków, which features four underground chapels and dozens of statues carved from rock salt, and Malbork Castle, an imposing medieval fortress of the Teutonic Knights.
