I visited Poland in 2004 although only on a daytrip for footballing reasons. We never seen any of the country apart from a small place called Wronki.
We will kick off our Eastern European tour in October in Krakow and I'd really like some advice of the best places to visit in and around that area. We'll probably do 4 or 5 days in Poland.
Well its good to hear more people are interested in visiting Poland. However for more detailed facts on where to visit places in Poland (especially what to do in cities), let Alicja reply. Unfortunately i dont know that much as ive been living down under for too long to help anyone out.
So as for "difbear", hope Alicja can help you out, Krakow is a beautiful city, it would come next from my first city to visit Wroclaw but still one of many cities that has so much to offer in every perspective, well worth the visit in 4-5 Days. only place i can recommend is to take a guided tour to Oswiecem (Auschwitz Concentration Camp), Graphic but a must see tour close to Krakow. Hope Alicja can assist you furthermore!!
Thank You very much Daniel for your replay.I have written message to difbear about his trip to Poland.Daniel has got right-it's good to visit Auschwitz and Birkenau,because of history of this place-Auschwitz and Birkenau Concentration Camp,but if difbear are planing to travell to Poland in October,I think it isn't a good season to visit this place,because of that the weather can be not good and Auschwitz is a very large camp and you should going a lot,because olmost everything is on open air.So if you want to see a lot,the weather must be quiete nice.
I'm waiting for your replies,questions and opinions about Poland.
My husband and I visited Poland for two weeks in September of 2004, and we loved it. We have been to most of the western European countries now, and Poland holds its own with any of them. It is very inexpensive, the good is great, the people are friendly and helpful. In spite of our guidebook warning that the Poles don't speak English, they all seemed to speak it reasonably well.
We spent several days in Warsaw, which was much nicer than I expected, a week in Krakow, which was fantastic, and three days in Zakopane, hiking in the mountains, which is one of the most fun hikes we've ever taken. Did I mention the food is really good? And they have red beer, where they put raspberry syrup into beer - it sounds awful, but it's this great cross between a beer and a snowcone.
We will definitely return to Poland again, and hope to visit Gdansk next time. I only hope it stays untouristy - the lack of other Americans was definitely a plus.
I am very happy because of sknight_copost replay.That opinion about Poland is very nice and true,because it was written by tourist,not for me-I can be not objective,because Poland is my country.I am still wainting for your questions about Poland and opinion about this beautiful country
Thank you komigirlfor your post.I still think the most beautiful cities in Poland are:Wroclaw,Krakow and Warsow.As far as mountains are concerned-Bieszczady of course,but also Klodzka Valley with beautiful Stolowe Gory.Tatry are nice,but I like the most BIESZCZADY.
