Many people undeservedly consider Poland only as a transit country on their way to the Czech Republic or Germany. Or simply choose Warsaw as a weekend destination. Meanwhile, in Poland, there are so many beautiful and interesting places.
Food in Poland
Be prepared to put on a few kilos after this trip. The meals are oversized. And even with a bowl of soup, you can be full the whole day after. Divide one dish for two and you won’t be mistaken. If you are not a fan of everything flour and meat, then try to choose simple menu items. But you must try something from the list below:
- Mushroom soup in bread;
- Cold soup;
- Polish dumplings;
- Stuffed cabbage;
- Potato pancakes;
Transport in Poland
If you are on a tour around Poland, then it is better to do it by car, so as not to miss the wooden tavern-motels on the road. But trains here are also very convenient for long distances. In cities, the taxi is pretty cheap. Take UBER.
Top 5 must-visit places in Poland
Malbork Castle.One of the largest castle structures in the world. In the Middle Ages was the base of the Teutonic Order.
Olsztyn is a tiny town with the most beautiful promenade. A place to relax on the weekend.
Warsaw. Walk around the city center and chill in one of the parks. Spend at least 2 days in a city. And don’t forget to prepare for the trip.
- Listen to the dog waltz and read about the relationship between Chopin and the French writer J. Sand. In Warsaw, the name of the great composer Chopin will be mentioned a lot.
- Learn more about Jewish ghettos from the Second World War.
- Find the little mermaid.
Krakow. The city with a very beautiful historical center and garden ring. You can explore Krakow in 1 day. Be sure to go to the fortress, look at the picture of Da Vinci and find out more about the Pope from USSR.
Auschwitz. Museum in a former concentration camp located between Katowice and Krakow. One of the strongest historical monuments that I visited. A really creepy place. I think that everyone should at least once visit a museum in concentration camps. This makes it clear the terrible nature of the human soul and the cruelty of war.
Hotels in Poland
I still remember the charm of the motels in Poland. My favorite is the Hotel Fox. It is a giant wooden taverna with fireplaces and other attributes on the way from Warsaw to Katowice. So my advice if you’re in a car, don’t stop in the cities. Poland has the most atmospheric motels in the world! It will be very tasty, a lot and cheap to feed.
