There are many cities and towns dotting the Polish landscape which are very tempting for tourists to discover. From the large cities like Warsaw and Kraków, to small historic towns and villages, it is hard to know where to begin on a trip to this central European jewel.
Bordered by Germany to the west, the Czech Republic and Slovakia to the south, Lithuania, Belarus and Ukraine to the east and Russia and the Baltic Sea to the north, Poland’s population boasts more than 38.5 million residents.
As unique as the residents, the landscape holds the Carpathian and Sudety Mountains to the south, the lowlands in the central part of the county, and the Pomeranian and Masurian lake region in the north. You can even experience sandy beaches in Poland located on the Baltic Sea.
While most travelers will experience a few of the small towns and villages of Poland, many are opting to go straight to the city of Kraków, which offers an old world charm, even with a population of roughly 1 million residents.
