Poland is a land of contrasts, marking the imaginary boundary between east and west. Whatever your tastes in holiday, from sun drenched beach holidays to cultural or sporting breaks, there is a holiday in Poland to suit. The hospitality is very warm, and travel cheap, yet the facilities and entertainment options are first class. There are remarkably few places where modern living and traditional cultures merge so effortlessly, and the combination is both fascinating and very comfortable to investigate. This is only a very rough guide to Poland, as there is simply too much on offer on a Polish holiday to mention in one sitting! However, one thing is for certain, if you take accommodation in Poland, you will be very tempted to return every year.

Things to do on holiday in Poland

There is always a huge amount of things to do in Poland, but what entertainment is available is dependant on the season.

The Baltic Sea is lined with fine sandy beaches which become very popular when the sun shines. As with the vast majority of Poland, the Baltic Coastline remains wonderfully unspoilt, yet you can find all the facilities and water sports options you could wish for along the coastal resorts like Gdansk, Slupsk and Koszalin. A tour of Poland’s Baltic coastline will also allow you to visit some of the finest health resorts in Europe.

The mountains of southern Poland are ideal for adventures of many sorts. Mountain biking has found a home in Poland’s Sudety Mountains, especially on the highest peak, Mount Sniezka.

However, it is Poland’s hiking options which have caused the mountain accommodation of Poland to become some of the most popular places to stay in Europe.

There is a small brewery, with a restaurant, next to the apartment. We ate at the restaurant on our first night and thoroughly enjoyed the meal and beers. There is a really good, reasonably sized supermarket very close to the apartment, which was useful for buying water, beer, wine and fresh bread. We were spoilt for choice with restaurants in Krakow. All were very good but Starka was the best restaurant we ate at. It was full, on a Monday night, and they turned many people away - it is, therefore, essential to reserve a table. We went to the salt mines, which was a good half day trip and we visited Auschwitz where we felt humbled. Four nights wasn't quite enough time to see end experience everything Krakow has to offer.
