Leading the top tourists attractions, the old town of Krakow is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with many buildings dating back hundreds of years, including the major sites- St. Mary’s Basilica, Cloth Hall on the main town square, and Wawel Castle up on the hill. Situated on the outskirts of Krakow, the Wieliczka Salt Mine is an underground city all craved out of rock salt. While High-tech museums are a rage in Poland, the capital-Warsaw posses arguably the best of the lot, and the Warsaw Uprising Museum has been wowing visitors with its engrossing array of sound, light, and video portraying the tragic Warsaw Uprising of 1944. Located on the Baltic coast, the city of Gdansk is known for its architecture. It's star attraction is St. Mary's Church which is the largest brick Gothic church in the world.

While trying the traditional Polish cuisine, stop counting your calories. High in fats and mostly includes meat and spices. Meals are heavy and strong, ideal for cold European winters. Ingredients mostly used are beetroot, sauerkraut, cucumbers (gherkins), mushrooms, kohlrabi, sausages and smoked sausage. A true touristic 'must eat' includes Bigos- meat stew that contains white cabbage, kotlet schabowy is a pork cutlet coated with breadcrumbs dished up with potatoes and vegetables and Golabki is a knob of forcemeat wrapped up in a white cabbage leaf. Poland is a budget traveler’s paradise, with beautiful cities all over and prices around half of what you’d expect to pay in Europe.
