Frequently asked questions
Poland is a country best explored on foot, so comfortable walking shoes are a must. The rest of your packing list will depend on the time of year you are travelling, but the weather can be unpredictable all-year round so be sure to throw in a lightweight rain jacket.
Krakow is undoubtedly one of Poland’s most popular pit stops for tourists, known for its rich history and stunning architecture. Warsaw, Gdansk and Wroclaw also attract their fair share of visitors thanks to Poland’s rich cultural heritage. Outdoor enthusiasts will gravitate to Zakopane in the Tatra Mountains and the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Bialowieza Forest.
It depends on what brings you to Poland in the first place. If you’re here for the festivals and outdoor activities, the summer months (June to August) are ideal. If you’re after slightly smaller crowds, fall or autumn (September to November) are great for exploring the great outdoors and if it’s snow that you seek, aim for December to February. Christmas in Poland is also pretty magical.
Step back in time and wander around Poland’s historic cities, learn about Poland’s complex history by visiting some of the country’s important (and sombre) historical sites, lace up your hiking boots and explore the Tatra Mountains, sample Polish cuisine, learn to ski, sip Polish beer and vodka straight from the source, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg!
