Poland Travel Guide

Poland has been through a lot, but it has made it what it is today. Coming face to face with some of the world’s most brutal history is sobering, to say the least, but the country is so much more that. Enjoy the beautiful cities, the friendly people, the melt in your mouth savory deliciousness that is Polish food and a lot of drinks as you get to know what Poland is all about.

Things to Consider

When to go 

Like other European countries, the best time to visit is in the shoulder seasons of spring and fall. Spring has a few extra showers but bright and green for those going hiking. Fall is perfect for seeing the entire country as it has warm days and beautiful fall colors and less rain than spring. Summers are nice and warm but high season for local and international travelers. Winter is cold and bleak in some parts but there is nice skiing and enjoyable holiday activities .
