where shall I go on Holiday? Try Poland for a fascinating holiday
Krakow main square is lined with pavement cafes and restaurants, a permanent flower market, atmospheric Cracow Christmas Market selling mulled wine and festive gifts, the inevitable pigeons. Sylwester celebrations New Years' Eve are superb. There are always street performers and a lively atmosphere. Hundreds of small individual restaurants each serving up their specialites.

There seem to be equally high numbers of pubs and beautiful churches so that you can drink first and repent in heavenly surroundings later.


Where shall I go on holiday this year?

If you're asking yourself this question, and would like to try a different destination, then do consider a holiday in Poland, in Eastern Europe.

It's a wonderful location for a touring, sightseeing, nature holiday or outdoor sports oriented holiday.

Poland's tourist logo shows mountains, rivers and forests, and that is an accurate portrayal of the countryside.

Poland's historic cities, especially Krakow, have much to interest tourists. It was not bombed during the second World War, so that historic buildings remain intact.

A walk on the wild side

Most people who have never visited Poland before are surprised at what they find. Bears and wolves no longer terrorise the villagers but are restricted to the national parks, along with wild boar and a myriad of other creatures that are extinct in the west.

People express surprise at the advances in technology and development of the country. There are superb shopping malls like the Krakowska Centre in Krakow, a state-of-the-art aquapark in Zakopane, wonderful Internet banking, and the trains run on time even though travel is cheap.

Polish tradition and culture

If you visit southern Poland, the Zakopane, Tatra and Cracow area, you will discover a Poland where the cuisine is still traditional highland, where people perform in national costume or waitresses wear it in restaurants, where they dance in a very Polish way in the pubs and clubs.

It's a taste of Polish tradition and culture but different to people from the west, which makes it interesting.

Attitudes and the nature of the people is different. Sometimes this is good, and other times not so good. Many people still smoke, Polish drivers are dreadful, and yes, the menu is dominated by pork. But, if you look beyond this, you will discover stunning unspoiled countryside where hay is frequently gathered in by hand, a strong tradition of folk culture expressed in song and dance, handsome architecture, multi-screen cinemas, internet cafes... the world of yesterday married with the hi-tech of today.
