Make a holiday rental home or apartment in Central and East Poland your home away from home

Central and East Poland is a vast area with few cities. It does, however, contain the most important city in the whole country – the capital, Warsaw. Whilst holidays in the central and east of the country will mainly be about enjoying the delights of this famous city, those that decide to venture outside boundaries confines will discover a combination of sprawling, unspoilt landscapes and tiny towns and villages that remain untouched and unspoilt by tourism.

Things to do in Central and East Poland

Most people who book their holiday rental accommodation in Central and East Poland are doing so to visit Warsaw, and attractions in the capital are too numerous to list here. As you expect of a city that is the ninth largest in the European Union, however, there are an abundance of old buildings, religious structures, museums, parks, gardens, bars, nightclubs, restaurants and shopping opportunities to keep everyone happy. Outside of the capital, Central and East Poland consists of kilometre after kilometre of undulating terrain and unspoilt scenery.

Places to visit on holiday in Central and East Poland

Without a doubt the main place to visit in Central and East Poland is Warsaw. The capital of the country is vast and impressive, and has a long and interesting history. The Old Town is the best place to start exploring the city, and has a number of interesting museums, castles, cathedrals and churches – many of which had to be painstakingly reconstructed after World War II. Warsaw in general is a city of culture, with art, music and theatre some of its most prominent draws, but modern tourist attractions can also be found in their droves, and the nightlife can be anything you want it to be – relaxed and laid-back or fast-paced and vibrant.

Outside of Warsaw there are few towns and cities of considerable size. An exception is Lublin, the largest city east of the Vistula River and the ninth largest in the country. Lublin is seeing considerable investment at the current time as it seeks to become the European Capital of Culture in 2016, and as a result has an increasing array of both modern and historic attractions.

Weather in Central and East Poland

Poland can be a cold country to visit, and temperatures in Central and East Poland can range from -2°C to 7°C between November and March. Summers are generally much warmer though, and if you visit the area in June, July or August it is reasonable to expect temperatures in the mid-twenties, and the odd day of near 30C weather.

Travel to Central and East Poland

Wherever you are staying in Central and East Poland, the best flight destination will almost certainly be Warsaw. Warsaw Frederic Chopin Airport (WAW), to give it its full name, is the busiest airport in the country and receives a good number of UK flights throughout the year, from airlines that range from upmarket British Airways through to low-cost Wizz Air.

There is also a mini supermarket in front of the house. The only "negative" aspect was that we had to pick up the key in an office a few minutes from the house, so it was a little uncomfortable go there with the luggage. However, recommended for a short trip in Warsaw.

Stockwerk. Diese Wohnung, ausgerichtet für 6 Personen, liegt an einer sehr großen Strasse und ist wirklich laut. Die Wohnung ist außerdem wirklich scheußlich, zwar sauber und funktional und sicher, aber von der Einrichtung her gruselig. Das sieht man auch schon auf den Fotos im Netz. Deswegen war es wirklich wirklich schade, dass wir nicht in der Siewierska wohnen konnten. Warschau lohnt sich trotzdem immer! Die Gastgeben konnten wir wegen des Wasserschadens nicht kennenlernen; die Mitarbeiter in der Agentur sind sehr freundlich.
