Poland

As a travel destination, Poland is somewhat underrated, despite having scenic beauty and cultural treasures to rival many of its more popular European counterparts. Lovely Kraków is perhaps Poland’s biggest draw, the former royal capital which encapsulates the country’s 1000-year old history. Its beautifully preserved mediaeval heart is complimented by examples of all of the great European architectural styles – marvel at the glittering domes of Wawel Cathedral, a physical manifestation of the city’s millennium of architectural evolution, or stand awed before the mighty Renaissance Cloth Hall, which stands on the largest market square in Europe. So magnificent is the city’s historic centre, it was listed as one of the 12 original UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1978. A short drive from Kraków is the Wieliczka Salt Mine, inscribed on the World Heritage List at the same time, which brought much wealth to the city. The oldest mine of its type in Europe, great chambers, workshops and chapels, lavishly embellished with statues and reliefs, have been carved from the salt rock within. Enjoy such unforgettable sights, alongside many more, in this rich and diverse land, where the wild beauty of nature is studded with centres of history, literature and culture.
