Enjoy Great Memories of a Perfect Vacation in Poland

Since the fall of communism in Poland in the 1980s, tourism continues to rise steadily. More than 18-million visitors from abroad visited the country in 2017, making it a record-breaking year for tourism.

A lush, beautiful country in the heart of the European continent, Poland is a land of contrasts with sandy beaches on the Baltic Sea coast in the north, rolling lowlands in its center, more than 1,300 lakes throughout the country, and the snowcapped peaks of the Carpathian and Sudeten Mountains to the south. Its large expanses of dense, forested lands provide protection for brown bears, wild horses, the continent’s largest population of gray wolves, and many more of Europe’s endangered species. It is bordered by Germany, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine, and Russian Kaliningrad.

A City in Ruins Is Born Again

Warsaw was virtually destroyed during World War II. Then an amazing thing happened. The fearless and resilient Polish people decided to rebuild their historic Old Town area. Their gargantuan efforts became the first attempt in history to reconstruct not only individual monuments, but to re-create the entire historical fabric of a city. Old Town became a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Today Warsaw is not just a city—it’s a celebration of the human spirit. The modern metropolis sparkles with beauty and energy. Visitors come to see its historic castles, churches and cathedrals. World-class museums celebrate art through the ages. Other museums pay tribute to Warsaw’s fighting spirit and the history of Polish Jews. Visitors enjoy strolling the city’s popular shopping areas and dining on traditional Polish foods and on the latest creations of chefs leading Poland’s culinary rebirth.

For lovers of history and culture, world-class vodka and cuisine, natural beauty and wonderful people, Poland has all the ingredients for a dream vacation.
