Poland is much more than Warsaw

IIf you think in Poland, which are the cities that comes to your mind? Is it Warsaw? Or maybe Krakow? Some more? No? Well, today I’ll show you some nice cities and places around Poland. Perhaps some of you know some of these places, or think about other nice and interesting places in this country, but I’m going to show you the ones that I visited during the six months that I was in this chilly country.

1. Warszawa

The capital. Huge and beautiful. I was taken in this city like another polish girl, what can I say about it then? Leaving aside the flatteries, I should say that you can visit the city in less than two days. If you want to visit only the tourist places, one day is enough, but, if you want to go deeper into the city, then I recommend you to live there, you’ll be surprised. The old town is the most beautiful part of the city, so you can’t leave without having seen it.

2. Kraków

The most tourist city in the whole country. There are lot of people who go to Krakow to spend a weekend, even if the city is not so big, is worth it. This also means that you can walk all around without using the public transport. You’ll find really nice places. If you have more time and you want to go somewhere else, I recommend you to visit the concentration camp in Auschwitz. It’s not far from the city and there are lots of buses that goes and come back over there.

Slightly farther from the city, there are the salt mines of Wielczka. It’s an amazing place to visit, 327 meters depth and more than 300km of galleries.

3. Zakopane

Nearly the Slovakia’s border, in the south of Poland, there is this nice place. It’s well-known for its ski slopes, and in winter, everybody who enjoys skiing goes to this area because of the plainness of the rest of Poland. We spend only one day in this city, and we could enjoy one of the spas that you can find near the ski slopes.

4. Poznań

We went to Poznan just for a day. Well, I think it was just for some hours, but I was amazed by this city. The old city and the big square are really charming. It’s a small city and you can visit it in less than one day but, if you’re close by, do not hesitate to take a train and go there.

5. Gdańsk

The North Star. I recommend visiting this city both during the day and at night. You just need one day to see all the city, but if you have more time, you should go to Sopot. It’s a small and interesting city and you can arrive there going by tram from Gdansk. It’s very cheap.

6. Łódź

This one should be the only polish city that I didn’t like at all. Perhaps because it was Sunday and everything was closed and nobody was there. If you’re in Warsaw you can go there with the train, but I recommend you better to go to Torun. It’s also very close by and I think is nicer.

7. Wrocław

One of Poland’s jewels. We spend a couple of days in this city and we really liked it. You can visit all the city by foot and I recommend you to check all the history or try to find a good guide to explain to you everything about the city. You can find amazing stories in every corner. It’s a city plenty of students, as Warsaw, that’s why you can find lot of night-life.

8. Toruń

This is another city where you can spend an afternoon, or a whole day, depending on your availability. Torun is a fortified city and it’s so charming. I think it’s a very beautiful city, and even in a rainy day, you can also enjoy it going to some of the nice cafes over there.
