Five Things To Do In Poland

Located on the Baltic Sea, this Eastern European country is well regarded for its classic medieval architecture and Jewish heritage. Consider Poland the next time you consider booking a holiday for a very enriching experience. Poland have been members of the European Union since 2004, which also makes them part of the EHIC scheme.

Once your application has been approved, you can relax and plan how you’re going to spend your time in Poland.

Auschwitz

One of the darkest moments in the history of the human race, but a period that should never be forgotten. Tours of the Nazi concentration camps are humbling and eye-opening experiences that you won’t forget in a hurry. The tours are available in a variety of languages, making them accessible for visitors from all over the world. The tour begins with a brief documentary film on the history of the camps, and you’ll soon see how much of the site has remained unchanged.

Cuisine

Food in Poland really is something else, and most of the success lies in the kooky pairings that you’d never think would work together. Duck, goose and beef roulade, stuffed with smoked pork and gherkins. Apples paired with onions and mushrooms sounds so wrong when you think about it, but the result is so right. For vegetarians, potato pancakes and dumplings are very popular in Poland, and they are often filled with curd cheese and mushrooms.

Main Market Square

Without question, this 10 acre square is the busiest part of Krakow, and the place to be if you want to see the city when it is at its most alive. The best spot for a relaxing afternoon as you can just stroll around, sit on a bench and take in the sights or dine in one of the numerous restaurants. You’ll find many a souvenir or trinket in the variety of kitschy shops. The area is also home to the Renaissance Cloth Hall, with dates back to the 16th century, as well as the Basilica of the Virgin Mary which dates back to the 14th.

Energylandia

A fun filled afternoon awaits at Energylandia, where you can feed your inner adrenaline junkie and is a fantastic treat for the kids. There are three different zones within the theme park, one for the really little children, another for families and the third is all of the extreme rides. Some of the popular rides include the Formula 1 Rollercoaster, Aztec Swing, Tsunami Dropper and Viking Rollercoaster.

Warsaw Uprising Museum

Located within the old tram power station, Warsaw Uprising is the complete history of Poland and its people. Many of the exhibits are fully interactive and attack all of the senses, providing a thorough experience for everyone. The museum is very easy to navigate. But tour guides are available in order to get the most of out of the experience. Allow yourself at least three hours to allow yourself time to fully absorb everything on offer.
