"Cultivation, old civilization, beauty, history! Whoever speaks of Paris has never seen Warsaw."

Novelist Cynthia Ozick

Poland may not be the most obvious holiday destination…

...but this resilient country has a fine collection of elegant cities rich in culture, as well as many lovely national parks to explore. Battered by the events of the 20th century, Poland is a fascinating place for history buffs, particularly those with an interest in the events of World War ll. There are many museums and monuments dedicated to this dramatic era, as well as castles, palaces and churches paying testament to around a thousand years of history before it. Kraków and Warsaw rival any European city for the grandeur and quality of their architecture, while the cuisine tempts with hearty home-cooked fare and an abundance of cream cakes and strudel - visit Poland and be prepared to loosen your waistband!

Things to do

Book a Baltic cruise and stop off in the picturesque medieval town of Gdańsk, or travel along the Oder River, cruising through the Szczecin lagoon and onwards into Germany. Explore the pristine Old Town of Warsaw, or the 14th century Wawel Castle and elaborate Cloth Hall in Kraków. See chandeliers carved from salt at UNESCO-listed Wielickza, take in the impressively turreted Malbork Castle, or tour the many islands of Swinoujscie on the sea border with Germany.
