Poland is a real jewel for nature and culture lovers - it offers unique landscapes and numerous cities with an amazing cultural heritage.
Those who visit the metropolis Kraków, will not want to miss out on seeing the magnificent medieval market place, Kraków Wawel - the former residence of the kings of Kraków, or the Jewish district Kazimierz. Several kilometres in front of the gates of the city, visitors can experience the city's mining history first hand: in the salt mine Wieliczka you will be amazed by the chapel of the sacred Kinga, 101 m below ground.
The biggest city, as well as the capital of Poland, is Warsaw. The best impressions can be collected from the observation deck of the Palace of Culture, which is the landmark of the city, as well as the highest building in Poland with 230 m. Furthermore, the historical city centre, the Water Palace, the Historical Museum, as well as the Chopin Museum are definitely worth a visit.
The second biggest city in the country, as well as one of Poland's cultural centres, is Łódź. Here you will find the well-known film academy, from which Director Roman Polanski graduated. Łódź even has its own "Walk of Fame" and the Piotrkowska Street is the longest (4 km) and nicest commercial thoroughfares in Europe.
One of the oldest - and nicest - cities is Wrocław, the cultural capital of 2016. It is located at the foot of the Sudetes and impresses with its numerous Gothic buildings in the historic centre. The university is housed in one of the most significant buildings in the city - among other things - due to the baroque auditorium "Leopoldina".
Furthermore, guests who have an interest in religion, will find great destinations in Poland: e.g. Wadowice, the birthplace of Karol Józef Wojtyla - Pope John Paul II, or the most important pilgrimage site in Poland, the Pauline Monastery on the Jasna Góra hill in Częstochowa. You will also find one of the biggest pope statues in this city: a 14 m high statue of John Paul II.
