    Poland

    Major Tourist Attractions: Wieliczka Salt Mine, Tatra Mountains, Malbork Castle, Copernicus Science Center

    Budget friendly and becoming popular among travelers, Poland is a place to find History, Castles, Mountains and Beaches.

    History. Castles. Mountains. Beaches and all the pierogi you could possibly eat. Believe it or not, you can find all of these (and more) in the Central European country of Poland.

    This budget-friendly destination is fast becoming popular among travelers to Europe, both for its price tag and its attractions. Visitors to Poland are often surprised by the country's beautiful architecture, especially considering that most cities (Warsaw included) were completely destroyed following the German occupation during WWII.

    Couple this history and rebirth with large green spaces and a wealth of UNESCO-recognized sites, and you'll probably be surprised by Poland's cities, too. If castles and museums aren't your thing, though, Poland also has plenty of national parks, ranging from those in the mountains to those near the Baltic Sea coast.

    Polish people on the whole are eager to welcome visitors and share their country's unique history, though not everyone you meet here will speak English. Thankfully, it's quite easy to get around in the country anyway, especially by train.

    Lodging in Poland ranges from backpacker hostels to luxury hotels, with plenty of options available in the major tourist cities like Krakow and Warsaw. Other popular destinations include Wroclaw, Gdansk, Poznan, and Zakopane.

    You could easily spend a month in Poland and not see it all. So here are some of the highlights:

    • Soak up the charm in Krakow's UNESCO-recognized old town.
    • Learn about the Warsaw Uprising at the Warsaw Rising Museum.
    • Visit a cathedral made entirely of salt at the Wieliczka Salt Mine.
    • Visit former concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau in Oswiecim.
    • Roam through the massive Malbork Castle just outside Gdansk.
    • Eat ALL the pierogi you can.
    • Go hiking in the mountains in Tatra National Park near Zakopane.
    • Admire Wawel Royal Castle and Wawel Cathedral in Krakow.
    • Hunt for dwarf statues peppered throughout the city of Wroclaw.
    • Visit sand dunes at Slowinski National Park.
    • See some old neon signs and billboards at the Neon Muzeum in Warsaw.
    • Go rafting down the Dunajec River near the border with Slovakia.
    • Tour some wooden churches in the Bieszczady Mountains.
    • Sun yourself on a beach on the Baltic Sea.
    • Spend some time in Poznan, Poland's first capital city.
    • Have a meal at a traditional Polish milk bar.
    • Enjoy the mild climate in Gdansk.
    • Search for tranquility at the Masurian Lakes.
