Poland in Autumn

Some parts of Poland look best dressed in the reds and golds of autumn. The mixed woodland of Poland displays all shades of autumn from pale golds through to rich reds and browns. Birches show up gold, sycamores and oaks turn a glorious red.

The photograph on the left, taken at the end of October, shows Dunajec Castle on Lake Czorsztyn in southern Poland.

The weather can still be very pleasant at this time of year, excellent for walking.

The Pieninski National Park lies to the south east end of Lake Czorsztyn. There are 2 other national parks within half an hour's drive of the self-catering accommodation in Rabka-Zdroj, convenient for all three national parks, plus numerous walks around Rabka-Zdroj itself.
