Take a train to Warsaw and discover the old town, rebuilt in a Baroque style architecture after the destruction of WWII, and see the Stalinist Palace of Culture and Science. If you prefer Renaissance style than Baroque style, go to Zamosc. Are you fond of culture? Board on a train to the polish Venice, Wroclaw, and find gothic style. There is so much to see in Poland!
On the Baltic Sea, swim or laze in the sun on Hel Peninsula, or go sailing on the Great Masurian lakes. Keen on hiking? Enjoy Bieszczady National Park. You can also thrill skiing in Zakopane (Carpathian Mountains) or kayaking around Biebrza National Park.
In Warsaw you can buy contemporary artworks. Bring back home some gingerbread from Torun or some oscypki (smoked sheep milk cheese) from Krakow, where you can also get antiques. Hop on a train to Podlasie region, stop in Zubrówka and find some bison-grass flavoured vodka.
Enter a typical canteen-style “milk bar” to test soup or hearty stews. One of the traditional dishes of Poland is the bigo (meat and sauerkraut stew). Try as well pierogi (filled dumpling). Of course, you will have to taste vodkas as the Zubrówka one or the Goldwasser one (containing golden flakes!)
Travel with the steam train through Klodzko Valley and enjoy the Walbrzych-Klodzko route. On your way, you will pass Poland’s highest viaduct (Ludwikowice).
