Poland has a sad story to tell, as one of the most oppressed countries in Europe during many centuries, but is now looking forward and becoming an increasingly popular addition to those enjoying a European circuit. In the fine city of Warsaw you can enjoy a cafe culture, New World cuisine and clubs that never close. This is one of the towns that never sleeps! While new building projects develop, the Old Town remains antiquated and a delight to explore.
Gothic castles and Medieval towns mark the landscape, especially in the north.
Despite development in the towns, the countryside rests very rural. Amid the mountains, arable fields and villages, it is not unusual to see horse-drawn carts.
The polish people are proud having fought through some of the darkest periods of modern times, but very warm and welcoming too. They will happily insist on sharing their vodka and even their dinner with you!
