Poland is a country as captivating as it is surprising, and there are many reasons to visit. Picturesque old towns and medieval architecture, rugged forests and fine sandy beaches, vibrant city life, and an extensive culinary scene are just some of them. Although Krakow and Warsaw almost always appear as the must-visit destinations, there are other cities that are equally worth a visit, such as Wroclaw, Toruń, or Gdansk. These cities hide a lot of museums and theaters full of activity, as well as a very lively nightlife. Poland's history is one more reason to visit this interesting country. A particularly sad history during the twentieth century, as it was one of the most punished countries in World War II and suffered the harshness of communism. The birth of Poland dates back to the year 966, and since then, it has collected countless historical moments that today make it unique and special. The salt mines of Wieliczka, the remains of the Ghetto wall, the monument to the Polish Resistance, and the remains of the Warsaw city wall from 1548 are just some of the monuments that Poland has to offer. Poland is not only its cities or its history, but there you can also enjoy incredible natural areas with breathtaking landscapes, such as Zakopane, Lake Skalki Twardowskiego, Zakrzowek, and Ojków. The richness of Polish gastronomy will surprise you: be sure to try its immense variety of soups (especially zurek), its pierogi (a kind of ravioli but bigger), its bigos (meat stew with cabbage), or its golonka (baked pork knuckle), among others.
