When you hear Poland, you might not immediately think of it as a travel destination, which is a pity because of its vast cultural heritage and natural beauty.

Besides the historic sites, Poland boasts an endless number of natural landscapes, many of them in their pristine state, waiting to be discovered. The Tatra Mountains, the highest mountains in Poland, have resemblance with the Alps, yet with unique characteristics that make this beautiful, mountainous landscape an ideal destination to be explored.

The Kingdom of Poland was founded in 1025 and in 1569 associated itself with the Grand Duchy of Lithuania in 1569 to become one of the most important states in Europe. This lasted for a couple of centuries until Poland was partitioned among Prussia, Russia and Austria. It regained its independence in 1918 at the end of the Great War. In the 15th century Poland was one of the most powerful kingdoms in the central Europe stretching from the Baltic Sea to the Black Sea.
In the beautiful landscape of the Nowogródek Pomorski the hilly fields stretch in gentle waves as far as the eye can see. Large, dense forests with giant trees (oaks with up to a 5 ½ meters width), wide rivers and mountains make the countryside unique and special. The houses along the roads have newly tiled roofs, are freshly painted and have gardens full of colorful flowers. If you are looking for peace and want to hear nothing but birds singing and the gentle splashing of the fish in the lakes, if you want to go hiking or horseback riding, to go fishing or mushroom picking, then Nowogródek Pomorski is the right location for you.
The Slowinski National Park is known for its 40 meters high dunes, separating the Lebsko and Gardno Lakes from the Baltic Sea. Climbing atop the dunes you will be rewarded with spectacular panoramic views of the blue sea and the golden sand.
Lying west of the shore of the Nogat, the well-known medieval monument Malbork Castle was built out of more than 10 million bricks and includes a court church and cloister.
In the capital Warsaw the influences of historic events, from having been dragged between many empires and regimes over many centuries, to the influence of WWII and the period of Soviet leadership, are ever present.
Visiting one of the many museums helps to understand what Poland is like today and the spirit and the mentality of its people. In the National Museum you can learn about the ‘Miracle at the Vistula’ where Poland regained its independence from Russia. The museum of the Warsaw Uprising gives you an insight of the uprising in the year 1944, orchestrated by the Polish resistance during World War II.
Today Warsaw has become a city with different styles and aspects, most noted when comparing the east and the west of the city. When walking through the alleys around the market, you have the impression of actually walking through medieval courtyards. On the other hand, the Palace of Culture, a building created in the 1950s in a Stalinist style counts today as the highest, the biggestand the most popular building in Poland.
Besides world class restaurants, some of Europe's best bars and cute little cafés, you can also enjoy scenic parks, galleries and many other things to discover.
In Oswiecim (German: Auschwitz) you can visit the German Nazi concentration camps where millions of people were killed during World War II, a tragic part of the Polish history.
